Boat and yacht surveys include:

The Pre-Purchase Survey is the most comprehensive offered, and includes inspection of the entire vessel, its safeness, systems, condition, deficiencies, and inventory of electronics and equipment. The report provided to the client includes recommendations on correcting or repairing what’s not working, what’s needed in safety equipment, as well as the vessel’s specifications and an appraisal of the current market value.

The Condition and Value Survey, also known as a C&V Survey or Insurance Survey, is a condensed version of a pre-purchase survey that focuses on the "seaworthiness" and safety aspects of the vessel. Also included in this survey is a market valuation of the vessel. The survey can be performed with the vessel hauled out or in the water, depending on the criteria of the insurance company. A sea trial is not normally performed.

A Marine Appraisal focuses on the market value of the vessel. The vessel specifications, inventory, and overall condition are inspected. Any obvious hazards or dangerous conditions observed are also listed.
