Vessel Condition Surveys

A vessel condition survey is a statement of fact. Our surveyors report on the condition of a particular vessel's hull and equipment condition at a particular time. The survey will typically determine the working or operational condition of equipment and management systems, including its certification status. Instructions are normally requested by vessel or barge owners, charterers and insurance interests, including P&I Clubs.

Complete and Comprehensive Surveys

LOC’s marine assurance and risk expertise combined with experience across shipping and offshore energy sectors of the maritime industry, position us perfectly to complete comprehensive vessel inspections, surveys and audits for technical due diligence, lay-up / re-activation surveys, pre-purchase surveys and other reasons.

Typically we conduct this work on behalf of finance and insurance interests. Our personnel have extensive experience with condition surveys for a variety of clients and uses.

Independent and Impartial

On-hire or off-hire condition surveys will include consumables (for example bunker and water levels – ROBs). As LOC is a well-established, independent and impartial company, it will often act on behalf of both parties (owner and charterer) in these surveys.


Survey forms may be provided by clients, particularly in the case of P&I clubs, and our surveyors are familiar with many of these forms.  Otherwise, LOC maintains its own condition survey report template that can be tailored to suit the survey required and the vessel or barge type.
