Vessel Condition Assessment

Vessel Condition Assessment


V.Ships has delivered decades of successful operational management. To mitigate risks associated with the acquisition of unknown assets existing owners, financial institutes and third party clients, make regular requests to the Technical Service Group to conduct Pre-Purchase inspections. These inspections are conducted and reported upon to the same rigorous high standards of vessels currently under V.Ships Management.

Drawing on experienced Inspectors, strategically located throughout their worldwide network of Ship Management Offices, attendance and assessment is accomplished in a timely and diligent manner, matching experience with specific vessel and client requirements. Depending upon vessel type, cccess and any, client specific instructions, an executive summary is compiled and forwarded within 48hrs of attendance completion.

The full report with spporting dcuments is then forwarded in hard and electronic format within five days of assessment completion.

A standard, full inspection report covers the below items, complete with supporting documents and photographic evidence of the condition, noting any concerns together with recommended remedial actions.

The report format identifies budget costs for remedial actions to bring the vessel up to a recommended condition, for safe and reliable operation.
