Default Phuket yacht surveyor, any recommendations?


I am at the final leg of buying a cruising yacht which is lying in Phuket, Thailand. I am not familiar with the surveyor in Phuket and any recommendations of a good surveyor (and reasonably priced of course) would be most appreciated. The boat I am looking at is a 40 foot fibreglass sloop, 30 yrs old.

Robert, congratulations on (hopefully) finding what you are looking for.

I have a friend in Thailand who's also bought a boat there; he may be able to refer you to a surveyor. Email me and I'll pass along his name & email address.

Nice guy.
In 1986 we went cruising for a few years. After 20 years and 50+ countries and several oceans, we are STILL "cruising for a few years".

The only good surveyor in Phuket I know of is Jimmy Watt (0892889645). I am not sure of his current rates but he will definitely be cheaper than anyone coming from Singapore. He has plenty of experience and is a professional.

Use your money to go to Phuket and look at the boat yourself. I used a 'REPUTABLE" surveyor from Singapore before buying my steel yacht there. Apart from the hull thickness details, for which I had no equipment myself, I could have written the report myself and also avoided the 23 errors it contained.

Hi Guys, Thanks for all the info. I have contacted Jimmy Watts but his schedule is very pack and we could not find a time that is good for the owner and us. Would anyone have any others to recommend?

Most likely the best and most experienced surveyor on Phuket Island is "Jeroen Deknatel" of Waterline Marine. See: Thailand Marine Surveyors & Consultants - Waterline Marine Ltd. in Phuket Thailand
