I. INTRODUCTION
SCOPE OF SURVEY
Acting at the request of XXXXX,the attending surveyor did attend onboard the XXXXX, XXXX beginning on June XX, XXXX at 0750
where an ''in-the-water-survey'' was conducted at , XXXXX, XXXX. The ship's papers were not sighted on on board. The Hull
Identification Number (HIN)was recorded from the transom. A sea trial was performed. An out-of the water inspection of underwater
machinery and the exterior of the hulls wetted surface area was performed today at this location. The reason for the survey, was to
ascertain the physical condition and value of the vessel. Moisture readings taken and referenced throughout the body of the report,
were taken with the GRP-33 moisture meter. AC and DC power was used to check operation of the electrical systems specified in this
report only. No reference or information should be construed to indicate evaluation of the internal condition of the engines or the
propulsion system's operating capacity. Electronic equipment was checked for ''power up'' only.
This vessel was surveyed without removals of any parts, including fittings, tacked carpet, screwed or nailed boards, 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. Owner is advised to open up
all such areas for further inspection. Further, 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 dates, and is
the unbiased opinion of the undersigned, but it is not to be considered an inventory or a warranty either specified or implied.
NOTE:It is recommend and understood that all diesel engines be surveyed by a qualified Engine Surveyor to determine the condition
of the engines, gears and pumps, heat exchangers, coolers, etc.
CONDUCT OF SURVEY:
THE MANDATORY STANDARDS PROMULGATED 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 NATIONAL FIRE PROTECTION ASSOCIATION (NFPA) HAVE BEEN USED AS
GUIDELINES
IN THECONDUCTOF THISSURVEY.
The use of the word ''appears'' is intended to indicate that a close or complete inspection was not possible or it was not deemed
appropriate at the time of this survey. The deficiencies reported herein reflect the conditions observed at the time the survey was
conducted.
Use of asterisks * in the body of the report will indicate that a finding will be listed in the Findings and Recommendations section
pertaining to the asterisked item, following the body of the report.
This surveyor is not a licensed appraiser in the State of Florida and all values placed on the vessel are a product of BUC and
Soldboats.com . BUCValu Professional is a subscription-based service for marine industry professionals who require comprehensive,
detailed boat evaluations. Soldboats.com is a subscription based service that provides recent sale figures. The "Fair Market Value" of
this vessel was the BUC published value minus 20 % and Soldboats.com listed sale prices. This "Fair Market Value" is a estimation by
this surveyor for the south Florida area.

V. SUMMARY AND VALUATION
STATEMENT OF OVERALL VESSEL RATING OF CONDITION:
It is the surveyor's experience that develops an opinion of the OVERALLVESSEL RATING OF CONDITION After a the survey has been
completed and the findings have been organized in a logical manner.
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, for a similar vessel sold within a given time period, as a
consideration to determine the Market Value.
The following is the accepted marine grading system of condition:
''EXCELLENT(BRISTOL) CONDITION'', is a vessel that is maintained in mint or Bristol fashion - usually better than factory new
- loaded with extras - a rarity.
''ABOVE AVERAGECONDITION'', has had above average care and is equipped with extra electrical and electronic gear.
''AVERAGECONDITION'', ready for sale requiring no additional work and normally equipped for her size.
''FAIRCONDITION'', requires usual maintenance to prepare for sale.
''POOR CONDITION'', substantial yard work required and devoid of extras.
''RESTORABLECONDITION'', enough of hull and engine exists to restore the boat to usable condition.
As a result of my investigation, as shown in the SYSTEMS AND FINDINGS AND RECOMMENDATIONS section of this REPORT OF
SURVEY, and by virtue of my experience, my opinion is
OVERALL VESSEL RATING:
FAIR
STATEMENT OF VALUATION:
1. The ''FAIRMARKETVALUE''is the most probable price in terms of money which a vessel should bring in a competitive and open market under
all conditions requisite to a fair sale, the buyer and seller, each acting prudently, knowledgeably and assuming the price is not affected by undue
stimulus.
Implicit in this definition is the consummation of a sale as of a specified date and the passing of title from seller to buyer under conditions whereby:
a. Buyer and seller are typically motivated.
b. Both parties are well informed or well advised, and each acting in what they consider their own best interest.
c. A reasonable time is allowed for exposure in the open market.
d. Payment is made in terms of cash in U.S. dollars or in terms of financial arrangements comparable thereto; and
e. The price represents a normal consideration for the vessel sold unaffected by special or creative financing or sales concessions granted by anyone
associated with the sale.
Therefore, after consideration of the reliability of the data, the extent of the necessary adjustments and condition of the vessel, it is your surveyor's
opinion that the ''FAIRMARKETVALUE''of the subject vessel is:
$165,000
One Hundred Sixty Five Thousand Dollars
2. The ''ESTIMATEDREPLACEMENTCOST'' indicates the retail cost of a new vessel of the same make/model with similar equipment offered
by the same manufacturer. ''ESTIMATEDREPLACEMENTCOST'' of the subject vessel is:
$1,420,000
One Million Four Hundred Twenty Thousand Dollars

V. SUMMARY AND VALUATION
SUMMARY:
In accordance with the request for a marine survey of the XXX XXX , for the purpose of evaluating its present condition and estimating its Fair
Market Value and Replacement Cost, I herewith submit my conclusion based on the preceding report. The subject vessel was personally inspected
by the undersigned on July 4, XXXX. Subject to correction of deficiencies listed in section IV A. (Safety), the vessel is considered to be suitable for
its intended use. Other deficiencies list should be attended to in a timely fashion.
SURVEYOR'S CERTIFICATION:
I certify that, to the best of my knowledge and belief:
The statements of fact contained in this report are true and correct.

unbiased professional analyses, opinions, and conclusions.
I have no present or prospective interest in the vessel that is the subject of this report, and I have no personal interest or bias with respect to the
parties involved.
My compensation is not contingent upon the reporting of a predetermined value or direction in value or direction in value that favors the cause of the
client, the amount of the value estimate, the attainment of a stipulate result, or the occurrence of a subsequent event.
I have made a personal inspection of the vessel that is the subject of this report.
This report is submitted without prejudice and for the benefit of whom it may concern.
