Introduction
Survey Purpose:
This survey will be performed to determine the “Health of the Vessel” in question. The opinions and conclusions expressed may be
instrumental in
•
•
•
Obtaining insurance for the vessel
Obtaining financing for the vessel
Determining the FAIR MARKET VALUE and replacement cost of the vessel
Survey Scope:
Pre -Purchase Survey
This is the most comprehensive type of inspection, and is strongly advised when purchasing a new or used vessel.
Should it be necessary to require minor dismantling of the vessel in order to gain access to inspect suspect areas, it will
become the responsibility of the owner of the vessel to have these areas made accessible for inspection and then either
reassemb led, renewed, replaced or repaired. Areas that cannot be evaluated because of inaccessibility to visual
examination will be noted in this report.
Upon the completion of the survey an opinion will be given as to the condition and safety of the vessel’s systems and
equipment to arrive at the FAIR MARKET and REPLACEMENT VALUE of the vessel. It is recommended that
qualified Engine and Electronics Surveyor(s) evaluate the engine(s) and electronics of this vessel. This survey will
evaluate the general condition of these items (e.g. Engine(s) start and Electronics power up) but will not evaluate the
life expectancy of the Engine(s) and accompanying drive trains, their performance or the accuracy of the Electronics.
This inspection and subsequent conclusions presented in the Summary and Recommendations will include what must
be done to insure the health and safety of the vessel and whether it is sound for your intended service based upon the
condition of the vessel as of the inspection date . For terms of this s urvey the “intended service” is based upon the
original designer and/or manufactures concept of the capabilities of the vessel design and your intended use of the
vessel.
Acting upon the request of CLIENT, the attending surveyor did attend onboard the Luhrs T300 beginning
on SURVEY DATE where she lay at the SURVEY SITE. The ship’s papers were onboard and appeared
to be in order. The Hull Identification Number (HIN) WAS present and a HIN rubbing was made which
appears in Appendix I. Both in-the-water and out-of- the water inspection of underwater machinery and the
exterior of the hulls wetted surface WERE performed. A sea trial WAS performed.
This vessel was surveyed without removals of any parts, including fittings, tacked carpet, screwed or nailed b oards,
anchors and chain, fixed partitions, instruments, clothing, spare parts and miscellaneous materials in the bilges and
lockers, or other fixed or semi-fixed items. Locked compartments or otherwise inaccessible areas would also preclude
inspection. Buyer/owner is advised to open up all such areas for further inspection. No determination of stability
characteristics or inherent structural integrity has been made and no opinion is expressed with respect thereto. This
survey report represents the condition of the vessel on the above date and is the unbiased opinion of the undersigned,
but it is not to be considered an inventory or a warranty either specified or implied.
GUIDELINES OF SURVEY:
THE MANDATORY STANDARDS PROMULUGATED BY THE UNITED STATES COAST GUARD (USCG),
UNDER THE AUTHORITY OF TITLE 46 UNITED STATES CODE (USC); TITLE 33 AND TITLE 46, CODE OF
FEDERAL REGULATIONS (CFR), AND THE VOLUNTARY STANDARDS AND RECOMMENDED
PRACTICES DEVELOPED BY THE AMERICAN BOAT AND YACHT COUNCIL (ABYC) AND THE
NA TIONAL FIRE PROTECTION ASSOCIATION (NFPA) HAVE BEEN USED AS GUIDELINES IN THE
CONDUCT OF THIS SURVEY.

Vessel Description
The Luhrs T300 is a Thirty One Foot Six (31’6”) Inch inboard powered Sport fisherman style boat equipped for near
shore Tournament Fishing. It has an upper tower with steering and throttle/transmission controls and horn button
(which was not hooked up). There is no engine cutoff or gauges at the upper tower console station. Distinguishing
characteristics of this Luhrs T300 are the aft sloping transom, dark blue hull, white topsides and tuna tower. This
Luhrs T300 has an ample supply of rod holders and a large open deck for easy fighting of medium size game fish. In
my opinion the aft deck is not open enough to install a fish fighting chair needed to land larger game fish such as
Marlin, Sword and Sailfish, but there are two built in fishing seats for fighting moderate sized game fish.

IV. Findings and Recommendations
Deficiencies categorized, as an “A” finding is “SAFETY RELATED”.
Deficiencies categorized, as an “AA” finding is “REGULATORY RISK RELATED”.
“SAFETY RELATED” findings represent an endangerment to personnel and/or the vessel’s safe and proper operating
condition and should be addressed before the vessel is next underway or left unattended at a dock or mooring.
“REGULATORY RISK RELATED” findings are in violation of USCG regulations. These findings are often included
on a “BOARDING REPORT” and could result in a fine if stopped and boarded. “REGULATORY RISK RELATED”
findings may not necessarily need to be resolved prior to conducting a “SEA TRIAL SURVEY” provided the vessel
owner and vessel operator are willing to assume the risk of being boarded and possibly fined.
Deficiencies categorized as an “B” finding are “OTHER DEFIENCIES” and should be addressed in the near future
so as to maintain standards and help the vessel retain it’s value.
Deficiencies categorized as an “C” finding are “SURVEYOR’S NOTES AND OBSERVATIONS” and may be
done in the future to help the vessel retain its value.
A. Safety Related Deficiencies
Reference: A1
Recommendation:
*A1 GOOD CONDITION Note there are three 120 vAC outlets onboard. Two
are connected in series and the GFCI outlet in the cabin protects the outlet in the
head. The 3rd 120vAC outlet is located under the gunnel on the starboard side in
the aft cockpit. This outlet is used to power electric reels. This outlet is covered
to make it water resistant, but not GFCI protected.
Install a GFCI receptacle for the outlet under the gunnel on the starboard side.
AA. Regulatory Risk Related Deficiencies
Reference: AA1
Recommendation:
*AA1 POOR CONDITION Fire extinguishers were onboard, but instead of
being mounted, they were stored under the forward V berth.
Mount the fire extinguishers in a visible place. I recommend that you install
bright red fire extinguishers.
Reference: AA2
Recommendation:
*AA2 NOT SEEN ONBOARD Visual Distress Flares were not seen onboard.
Confirm that the flares are not onboard. Be sure to keep flares onboard that are
within their expiration date. I recommend that you purchase SOLAS rated
flares.
Reference: AA3
*AA3 POOR CONDITION The horn works from the lower helm stations, it
did not from the upper helm station.
Repair the horn button for the upper helm station.
Recommendation:
Reference: AA4
Recommendation:
*AA4 POOR CONDITION I did not see a Trash Disposal (Save Our Seas)
Placard mounted onboard.
Install a Trash Disposal (Save Our Seas) Placard in a visible place.

Recommendation:
*B1 GOOD CONDITION however, cleats use standard washers for backing
plates. Do not use cleats for towing.
Install large cleats for anchoring. Install backing plates on all cleats that will
have a heavy load put on them.
*B2 FAIR CONDITION There are stress cracks in the storage area underneath
the fishing preparation area (lure storage cabinet and sink… see photo)
Dry out this area. Grind off the fractures and recover with epoxy paint.
*B3 GOOD CONDITION Tower was freshly painted with white paint over the
aluminum structure. Two areas need to be repaired on the port side. One is at
the base of one of the legs, the other around the epoxy plug drilled in the
structure for pulling wires.
Repair cracks in the tower. Monitor welds and structure.
*B4 GOOD CONDITION Both engines started easily from a cold start.
Engines were freshly painted with VOLVO green paint. Forward fuel injectors
on the port engine showed some leakage of diesel fuel. Note some “squeal”
noted on the starboard engine when it was accelerated.
Have fuel injectors checked. Determine the cause of squeal and have it fixed.
*B5 GOOD CONDITION port side showed no signs of play while starboard
side showed just a slight movement. Both shafts turned easily through the struts.
Monitor cutlass bearings and replace when they allow shaft play.
*B6 Appear to be in GOOD CONDITION Batteries were not load tested. Port
battery was not secured. Starboard battery is not large enough to handle
sustained house power drain. Generator will need to be run in order to supply
recharging power.
Consider installing larger battery for house power. Consider installing a solar
panel to trickle charge the starter battery when the boat is out on the mooring and
not in use.
*B7 GOOD CONDITION Note that the shower pan in the head has stress
cracks in it.
Grind out fiberglass cracks and fix with FRP.
*B8 GOOD CONDITION Note that the upper station hydraulic fluid needed to
be recharged.
Monitor upper station steering check to be sure hydraulic fluid is full.
*B9 GOOD CONDITION Length of anchor rode is approximately 200 feet.
However it is made up of two attached lines. The second line is attached at a
severely rusted thimble.
Safety wire shackles, replace rusted thimble.
Reference: B10
Recommendation:
*B10 NOT SEEN ONBOARD Secondary anchor not seen onboard.
Keep at least one secondary anchor and rode system onboard. I recommend that
you consider the light-weight Hardened FORTRESS Anchors.
Reference: B11
Recommendation:
*B11 FAIR CONDITION Type II PFD’s found onboard.
Replace Type II with Type I Offshore complete with strobe lights, reflector tape,
whistle etc.
Reference: B12
*B12 UNIT NOT TESTED Unit charged light did not come on for the Halon
1301 system.
Check wiring, make sure unit works. Have extinguisher inspected.

Summary and Valuation
Statement of Overall Vessel Rating of Condition:
After the survey has been completed and findings have been organized in a logical manner, the surveyor
develops an opinion of the OVERALL VESSEL RATING OF CONDITION.
The grading of condition, developed by BUC RESEARCH, and accepted in the marine industry, for a
vessel at the time of survey, determines the adjustment to the range of base values in the BUC USED
BOAT PRICE GUIDE. These base values for a similar vessel sold within a given time period are
considered to determine the FAIR MARKET VALUE.
The following schema is the accepted Marine Grading System of Condition and Equipment Scale described
in the BUC USED BOAT PRICE GUIDE:
“Excellent (Bristol)” Maintained in mint or Bristol fashion – usually better than factory new –
and loaded with extras – a rarity.
“Above BUC  Condition” Has had above average care and equipped with extra electrical and
electronic gear.
“BUC  Condition” Ready for sale requiring no additional work and normally equipped for her
size.
“Fair” Requires usual maintenance to prepare for sale.
“Poor” Substantial yard work required and devoid of extras.
“Restorable” Enough of hull and engine exists to restore the boat to useable condition.

As a result of my investigation, the items presented in the SYSTEMS and FINDINGS AND
RECOMMENDATIONS sections of this REPORT OF SURVEY, and by virtue of my experience, it is my
opinion that this vessel warrants an OVERALL VESSEL RATING of “Above BUC  Condition” Has
had above average care and equipped with extra electrical and electronic gear.
There listing for a 1992 T300 in the 2001 79th Edition BUC Used Boat Price Guide shows that this boat
equipped with YANMAR 120hp Diesels in BUC
 Condition (ready for sale requiring no additional work
normally equipped for her size) has retailed between SIXTY FOUR THOUSAND ($64,000) and
SEVENTY THOUSAND THREE HUNDRED ($70,300) DOLLARS. After inspecting this boat, this
surveyor has determined that it is in “Above BUC  Condition” Has had above average care and equipped
with extra electrical and electronic gear. It is this surveyor’s opinion that this boat has a fair market value of
($XX,XXX) DOLLARS US . If this vessel were to be resold in San Salvador, BAHAMAS, its fair market
value would be significantly higher.
Statement of Valuation:
1.
The “FAIR MARKET VALUE” is a term that describes the most probable price in terms of money
that this vessel should bring in a competitive and open market. It assumes all conditions are requisite
to a fair sale, that the buyer and seller are each acting prudently and knowledgeably, and that the price
is not affected by an undue stimulus.
Implicit in this definition is the consummation of a sale as of a specified date and the passing of clear
title from seller to buyer under conditions whereby:
•
•
•
•
•
2.
Buyer and seller are typically motivated.
Both parties are well informed or well advised, and each is acting in what they consider to be
their own best interest.
A reasonable amount of time is allowed for sale exposure in the open market.
Payment is made in terms of cash in U.S. dollars or in terms of financial arrangements
comparable thereto.
The price represents a normal consideration for the vessel sold and is unaffected by special or
creative financing or sales concessions granted by anyone associated with the sale.
The “ESTIMATED REPLACEMENT COST” is a term that indicates the retail cost of a new vessel
of the same or similar make and model with similar equipment offered by the same or a similar
manufacturer.
Therefore, after consideration of the reliability of the data, the extent of necessary adjustments and
condition of the vessel, this surveyor expresses the following opinions:
** FAIR MARKET VALUE
ESTIMATED
REPLACEMENT COST
DETERMINED BY COMPARISONS

Date of survey
Summary:
In accordance with the request for a marine survey of the “ ”, for the purpose of evaluating its present
condition and estimating its “FAIR MARKET VALUE” and “ESTIMATED REPLACEMENT COST”, I
herewith submit my conclusion based on the preceding “REPORT OF SURVEY”. The said vessel was
personally inspected by the undersigned on DATE OF SURVEY and was very well maintained.
This vessel is currently operated as a recreational boat. The new owners plan to use this vessel in
commercial service. The structure of this boat and its design lend itself to this type of use. However it is
my opinion that several systems and procedures should be added and/or modified before this boat will be
ready for commercial use.
This vessel’s hull integrity as inspected on DATE OF SURVEY, appears to be fit for the owners intended
use of Commercial Offshore Sport fishing around the coast of San Salvador under favorable weather
conditions. It is strongly recommended that the owner address the *A Safety Related Deficiencies and
*AA Regulatory Risk Related Deficiencies noted in Section IV Findings and Recommendations.
