We combine our experience from small leisure craft surveys with our leading superyacht naval architecture and engineering business to offer a single source of independent, highly credible advice.
Apart from yacht owners, managers, insurance underwriters and their lawyers, BMT acts for customers from all sectors of the yachting community including builders, suppliers and other third-party interests. In bringing together our network of specialist yacht surveyors with our superyacht design, engineering and technical expertise, we have created a comprehensive range of services that integrate these two specialisms and can be applied for any yacht size, varying from small pleasure craft to the most customised mega yacht.
