An IPA undertaken by a MIA surveyor is one of the most effective methods of making a vessel stand-out from a crowd of other similar boats available for sale.
An IPA report helps to reassure potential buyers of the condition of a vessel, which will make the vessel more marketable and improve the prospect of an early sale.
An IPA will reveal any significant defects with the vessel before sale, enabling a seller to address these, or to price the vessel accordingly, factoring-in any post-sale repairs that a buyer may need to undertake.
An IPA is a focussed ‘walk through’ vessel assessment available at relatively low cost.
The invaluable reassurance that a vessel advertised for sale with an IPA report has already been given a preliminary, structured, once-over inspection by an independent, expert marine surveyor, who is knowledgeable about second-hand yachts and motor boats and what to be wary of, and to look out for, when buying.
The confidence to proceed with a boat viewing, knowing that what is reported in the IPA fairly represents the boat the buyer will travel to see and is interested in.
Real savings of time and money in the boat buying process - buyers waste less time viewing unsuitable, disappointing boats and, generally, will pay less for a full condition survey undertaken by a surveyor who has already carried out a preliminary inspection and prepared an IPA report.
