Pre-purchase Surveys & Inspections

Ocean Surveys NZ ltd



Tim has been involved in boat building for over 40 years and has experience in GRP, Steel, wood

and Ferro-cement. He has been not only a boat builder but a boat sailor having sailed

to New Zealand from the UK over 30 years ago in a boat he built for himself.

His experience encompasses Ocean cruising vessels as well as smaller coastal cruising boats,

launches and various commercial vessels. He holds a commercial skippers ticket and has

worked on commercial boats.

Tim also has Royal Yachting Association Yacht-master Off-shore qualifications in both Sail

and Power. He ran an RYA boating school in Wellington for some years teaching Power-Boating

up to advanced level, Yacht-master Off-shore courses for both Sail Cruisers and the same

for Launch owners.

While in Wellington he worked with a Maritime New Zealand recognised Surveyor on

commercial vessels and found this to be an invaluable experience. Since then he has

specialised in Recreational craft of all types.

Tim maintains a membership with the International Institute of Marine Surveying.

Whether a client is experienced or new to boating Tim would be an excellent choice of Surveyor

since his passion for all things boating coupled with his highly developed communication skills

(honed in teaching) ensure that the client will be fully informed.
