Should the buyer be present during a pre-purchase survey?

While a survey can be performed without the buyer being present, it can be helpful for the buyer to be there during the survey itself. The surveyor may be able to point out certain items and explain their meaning more easily while on the boat itself. Surveyors may also make comments or observations that aren’t significant enough to be included in the final report, but which may add to the buyer’s understanding of the boat’s condition. The buyer also has an opportunity to ask the surveyor questions and ask for clarification of the surveyor’s comments.
