Here's how to get the most useful survey for your money:


The National Association of Marine Surveyors (NAMS) and the Society of Accredited Marine Surveyors (SAMS) are professional organizations that have instituted rigorous examination programs for their membership. BoatUS Marine Insurance underwriters will accept value surveys or pre-purchase surveys from those surveyors who have received the SAMS designation of "AMS" with a specialized classification of "Y-SC" (yacht and small craft) or NAMS designation of "CMS" with a specialized service code of "A" (yacht and small craft).
