DNP SERVICES

DNP Marine Surveyors have been working in the marine profession since 1977. We are based in Vancouver, BC Canada

and work with both commercial deep sea and ocean going vessels and recreational boaters. We inspect, measure and weigh…we are correspondents. We collect evidence in advance of claims and as a result of them.

THE MARINE SURVEYOR...A PERSON OF ALL TRADES!

A marine surveyor is young and limber enough to scramble through the smallest hatch, strong enough to lift the heaviest hatch cover, yet old enough to have seen it all. They have the eye of an eagle and can write like Boswell. They have the memory of a convict, the balls of a fireman and the hearing of an owl. They are expected to be a shipwright, a naval architect, a marine engineer, a mathematician and perhaps most important of all, a diplomat. They must know the market value of every boat and what it costs for every type of repair. Marine surveyors are the people in the field who put on the coveralls and crawl in and around the holds, bilges and bottoms of boats and report to you on the condition of a cargo or boat, the weight of the cargo, the cause and extent of loss. We are the eyes and ears of the insurance underwriter.
