Private Survey Customer 2015
Thank you Lee for the information and for the excellent and thorough survey you did. I am most impressed with your attention to detail. I am sure [The Captain] appreciates the independent survey, as I do, and will no doubt meet the challenge of getting the vessel in to perfect condition.
Cargo Claims Adjustor, Super Yacht Repair Project
Our sincere thanks for all of your efforts on this one, hopefully we’ll not have another of the same severity however, you are now firmly established on our preferred list of Surveyors with specific emphasis on large yachts, we will contact you again should the opportunity arise.
Captain, Sunseeker 86 Yacht
Thank you very much for all your help and involvement with the PDI survey on [the yacht]. Although I know it has been very short notice, you all did a great job and the owner is very happy to have your report in his hands. Once again thank you very much and I hope we will see you again on the next survey.

"After several years and dozens of surveyed and successfully delivered boats saying just “thanks” doesn’t really seem to do the trick. We value our partnership and your expertise that you bring the table. Your experience is invaluable and what’s even more invaluable is that we know we can always count on you to perform at the highest possible level. There will be a lot more projects in the future (as we hope) and we always know whom to turn to. ”

" Thank you seems to be too little to say for two years of hard work - but thank you anyway. Without your involvement she wouldn't have ended up being the boat she has.”

Lee Warltier and his team have represented one of our Clients in the recent past. In fact they are continuing to represent in the lead up to delivery of a SS Predator 115 which was recently on display at the London Boat Show. We are due to take delivery of that yacht in March and Lee has followed the build from start to finish as they did the previous yacht for the same Owner. Throughout the two builds I have worked on with them (the first was an 88 Yacht) I have found them to be extremely professional in both their general approach and in their reporting. They strike the right balance of keeping Sunseeker ‘onside’ to the point that the yard is actually cooperative and being able to take them to task when things are not to the high standard that our own very demanding (Russian) client would wish for.
The team have acted as a go-between with the Owner, managers, crew, lawyers, flag state/class and shipyard and as such have gone beyond their contracted remit some distance. During the build process we were issued with almost monthly reports covering the main points of interest and now things have moved up a gear this has been replaced with an ongoing construction log (snagging list) which all parties are using, driven by the survey team. Now that she is undergoing finishing they will have almost a permanent presence on board.
