The survey will come with the boat. The previous owner didn’t move the boat for 7 years, it’s not moved an inch since the last survey. Anodes are clearly visible from outside the boat and in good conditionI’ve been in the water and had a thorough inspection of the hull. I am so confident to the hull condition I am happy for the buyer to commission their own survey and (hypothetically) I will pay for any repair the boat would need to passThis is an incredible floating palace, inside the M25 (yet, perfectly, outside any congestion or LEZ zone and surrounded by countryside) with every comfort you could ever wish. It’s been very well looked after and the new owner will get decades of good use out of itPhotos below:
