On/Off Hire Surveys

Killybegs Marine Surveyors provides professional, reliable, and comprehensive on/off hire surveys for vessels and ships across the marine industry.


On/off hire surveys are carried out before a ship is delivered into charter and returned from charter. The purpose of the survey is to record the current structural condition and cleanliness of the vessel before the charter. The survey includes the cargo gear, cargo holds, the deck, securing equipment, and any other areas of note as well as inspection of the vessel's certificates. Upon return of the vessel, a follow-up survey is carried out to determine any changes in conditions or damage to the vessel. For any discrepancies found, other than fair wear and tear, we can provide an accurate and independent price for any repair works that the liable party will need to undertake.


At Killybegs Marine Surveyors we thoroughly assess the condition of the vessel, the hull, machinery, and all other required areas. We produce a comprehensive report which can then be used for an accurate comparison with the follow-up survey report.
