First condition survey of 2015

It’s that time of year again when we all start to prepare for the season ahead. In recent years, our clients have made big savings by shopping around for boat insurance often saving hundreds of euro in the process. It’s easy to change insurance companies but owners usually have to produce a condition survey. We do 20 to 30 of these every spring and working in the cold in Crosshaven boatyard today I got that feeling, the feeling that spring is on its way and the race course is beckoning.



What do Naval Architects do?

A naval architects first role is boat design, but often we do assessment of existing designs ahead of modification work , or  prove a vessel meets safety legislation. Then there are the unusual jobs…

Below is a photo of a Viking Long Boat that we did a safety assessment on so that it could bring Santa to Waterford City one Christmas. There is never a dull moment in this profession.
