Damage assessment and repair advice

The experience of our team covers all kinds of damage, whether hull of machinery related, on a wide range of vessels: from deep sea vessels to floating installations and inland navigation craft. As experienced naval architects and marine engineers, we provide clear, authoritative advice on ship repair, cost calculations, classification and technical superintendence. Our independence from manufacturers and yards is valued and recognised and, along with our technical quality, underpins the credibility of our surveys.

Our coverage of both territories and disciplines mean we are able to arrange surveys at short notice. You can email us at surveys@bmtglobal.com or contact one of our offices direct.

New to the market? ‘H&M’ explained.

If you are new to the term, Hull & Machinery insurance covers damage to a vessel’s hull, fittings, machinery and installed equipment. Insurance is mostly placed though brokers arranging cover through a range of insurance companies. Unlike P&I insurance which insures a shipowner’s liability to others, H&M insurance mainly covers the ship as the owner’s primary asset. The two insurances (P&I and H&M) both become relevant in the event of a collision liability (P&I) and damage (H&M) to fixed and floating objects.
