Safety inspectors

Yacht inspectors use a checklist when completing an on-board inspection and this is now available, for owners to refer to, for information purposes only. Click here to download a copy.

For a category 1 and 2 inspection, this is a two-stage process, both an out-of-water and in-water inspection. Category 3 is generally in-water, however, in some circumstances a yacht may be required to have an out-of-water inspection.
