Based in Taiwan, Pan Asian Yacht Services is situated a short flight away from all the shipyards in Taiwan, China, and Hong Kong, which makes it easy to inspect the work on your yacht at crucial points throughout the process. The extent and timing of these visits are determined by the nature of the project, and your comfort level.

Each visit will be documented to you in the form of a written report indicating the status of the project, with supporting photographs, as well as recommendations. Reports are mailed, emailed, or faxed to you immediately upon completion. Reports and reviews can be as complex or simple as you like.

Construction of a new yacht custom or production is an expensive, complex, time consuming task that can be emotionally draining; let me put your mind to rest. Fees for onsite inspection vary depending on extent and frequency. Contact Pan Asian Yacht Services for a custom quote.

The pre-purchase survey is a comprehensive inspection of your vessel. It is conducted primarily to ensure the safety of you and your crew by examining the vessel for compliance with ABYC and NFPA standards, and with USCG regulations. The fee for a pre-purchase survey is dependent upon the length of your vessel, and any additional testing you request.

A pre-purchase survey is an excellent investment, because it may identify expensive problems not observed by the buyer and possibly not by the seller either. This situation is true both for new and old vessels. Armed with this information, the buyer now has the facts to make a decision to walk away from a potential money pit, or to further negotiate the purchase price.
