REMARKS:
The vessel has been built to current professional standards, is well fitted out and maintained in
reasonable condition.
The defects aforementioned should be attended to at the soonest
opportunity and the safety equipment is to Cat 7 requirements.
The equipment, electrical and fuel systems have been inspected visually only so far, as is
possible, and no guarantee can be given for their satisfactory operation.
All reasonable attempts have been made to trace defects present however, there can always exist
latent or design defects that are not visible without interfering with the vessel's structure or fittings.
We have not inspected woodwork or other parts of the structure, which are covered, unexposed or
inaccessible, and we are, therefore, unable to report that any such part of the structure is free from
defect.
This report is given without prejudice and is for the exclusive use of the contracting party only and
no responsibility will be accepted for any other party without the written consent of the
undersigned.
