Langkawi, Phuket, SE Asia
150 RM, per hour. Generally a two or three hour inspection will be enough to answer most of your initial questions to help decide whether to proceed or look elsewhere. Minimum 3 hours fee if not performed at Telaga Harbour in Langkawi. For metal boats stray current testing (electrochemical potential) is available to determine if the boat is adequately protected against corrosion.
This inspection will supply you with additional information on the vessel of interest. Rather than traveling to inspect everything for sale we can narrow the field for you by an initial objective look at the boat to determine basic condition and suitability for your purpose. Written report with pictures available if preferred.
Getting a (new to you) boat ready for your use can be a time consuming and frustrating process in Asia and elsewhere. We can plan your project, advise on the best solutions, acquire and install most equipment required. This service is particularly beneficial if you are away from the boat and need work done in your absence. Solar panel systems and power management (battery charging etc) comprehensive solutions available. Dozens of local cruising and offshore boats have successfully resolved their energy problems with our solar kits. It does not have to be difficult, email or call for a solution at the best price.
