Acting on behalf of H&M Underwriters, Loss of Hire Underwriters, and P&I Clubs, we assess damages sustained by vessels as a result of collisions, groundings, fires and contacts with fixed and floating objects and from machinery failure.

 

Due to our contact with ship repair yards, we are well placed to assist our principals in initial price and availability negotiations, and the final negotiations and assessment of repair accounts. Where an incident involves quay damage, our associate Engineering Consultants can perform inspections both above and below the water level.

 

We offer a variety of condition surveys which will be adapted to your distinct demand. Feel free to contact us for your individual inquiry.
