The Pre-Purchase survey is the most comprehensive type of inspection and is strongly advised when purchasing a new or used vessel.
The general condition and over all operation of the vessel should be examined in detail. This includes such items as a structural integrity assessment, out of water inspection, sea trial, inspection of the electrical system, propulsion system(s), fuel system, machinery, navigation equipment, miscellaneous on-board systems, cosmetic appearance, electronics and overall maintenance.
Isurance inspections are very similar however, sometimes the insurance company does not require the boat to be inspected out of the water. You will need to contact your provider and communicate with them to make sure you both are on the same page.
Both inspections will require the logistics of coordinating a time and place and potentially a haul out facility which will then require the boat to be moved accordingly.
