The cost of a marine survey has many variables that can affect a fair price, including, but not limited to, the size and type of vessel, the materials it is built from, the type and scope of work the surveyor is required to complete, and the location of the vessel.
The vessel condition can also play a part… it takes much longer to survey and write the report for a 15 year old boat that has been badly neglected than it does for a three your old vessel in Bristol condition. Some surveys may require an hourly rate rather than a flat fee or price per foot.
We should add here that in almost every case the marine survey is very much the wrong place to try to save a couple of hundred bucks. A boat is a very serious investment; both money and lives are at stake.
Mother nature can be a hard taskmaster. Get the best surveyor for the job and pay him what he is worth.
