We provide a qualified and unbiased valuation for boats of various sizes and styles. During our inspection, we take into account the overall integrity of the boat. We examine the layout from the inside and outside, and create an inventory of its equipment.

To make the valuation as accurate and thorough as possible, we also consider areas where expenditures may be incurred. In some cases, especially if you’re putting up your boats for sale, it would be in your best interest to have boat defects repaired before you get a valuation.

During the inspection, we also ask pertinent questions about the vessel. Queries typical center on the history and other specifications of the boat. Having complete information on the vessel is required to ensure that proper valuation. Our boat valuation service is founded on decades of relevant marine experience and commitment to high-quality service.

The NZ Marine Valuations Proposal/Contract for Valuation is a written document where we can begin to acquire information regarding your vessel. It will allow us to get the specifications of your boat and the purpose of the valuation.

Conversely, the proposal/contract will also provide you with more details on our work. It details the scope of our work, payment details, and our Registered marine Valuer, Ian Walker. The valuation provided will be according to the guidelines of the Property Institute of New Zealand (PINZ), and comply with the standards of the International Standards of London.

We pride ourselves on the high-quality boat valuation service we provide. If you’re looking to get your vessel’s valuation, contact NZ Marine Valuations.

To Whom it May Concern,

We routinely and regularly use Mr Ian Walker from NZ Marine Valuations to perform valuations on our floating plant portfolio. We find Ian to be incredibly accommodating and knowledgeable, often travelling to locations that others want to visit to inspect components of our fleet. I would have no hesitation or issue recommending Ian and NZ Marine Valuations.

Kind Regards,

To whom it may concern.

Ian Walker recently completed a quite complex desktop valuation for my self-build yacht. I found Ian thorough, professional and helpful in all my dealings with him. I, therefore, would have no hesitation in recommending his services.

Thanks Ian, pleased to have met you. Appreciated your prompt service, I must have caught you at the right time. The Current Market Valuation was well received by the Insurance company, enabling my pride and joy to be correctly insured. I was amazed at your depth of knowledge on the back ground of Stead Craft boats and my model in particular.
