Determine a Boat's Condition with a Pre-Purchase Inspection

Through a pre-purchase inspection or survey, we evaluate new and used boats before you make a purchase. This inspection details the vessel’s overall operating condition and assesses its current market value with a thorough inspection, including an engine appraisal, hauling, sea trials, etc.

Engine testing is not generally included in the pre-purchase survey but can be arranged upon request at an additional cost. When clients request us for their pre-purchase assessment needs, we provide them with a list of information, including:

How Do Our Marine Pre-Purchase Inspection Services Work?

We aim to provide the best possible service by inspecting the condition of the engines.

What Our Clients Say

Mojtaba Merzayie
Mojtaba Merzayie
Mehrab at ignition marine service is a very honest guy. He was able to professionally install 2 underwater lights for a fraction of what other people were quoting. Also, when we arrived after hours to pickup the boat he went out of his way to guide us on how to maintain the boat and future issues that will arise if certain things aren’t done. Quality service at a great price is what you will expect at ignition marine and I will definitely be going there again for all my future boating needs.

Mehrab at Ignition Marine will go out of his way to take care of you. He is excellent in his communication and is very good at setting expectations. He completely rebuilt my 38’ Chris Craft engines, and they are now like new. He meticulously took apart each piece, primed it, and painted it. Given that it is a ‘93, we knew that we would run into more issues along the way, and he kept me up-to-date on his progress. He has worked into the night many times on my boat just to get it to me in time. I am very thankful that I selected Mehrab and Ignition Marine. He is a true professional. Side note: I spoke to one of the staff members at Lions Gate Marine Centre, and he told me he has never seen anyone work as hard as Mehrab! I am not surprised!

I’ve recently had a checkup on my new boat done by Ignition Marine. I was impressed by their service from the start and will be a return customer. I was a bit apprehensive of finding a trustworthy shop that I could depend on for service. Mary in the front office was friendly and accurate in detailing want I wanted serviced. Mehrab was very friendly and appeared to go out of his way to offer exceptional customer service. My service was done in a timely manner and was priced competitively. I’ll be back.

Great communication from this company. Mary has been a pleasure to work with. They are very accommodating and their open hours are great. They also have very competitive pricing. I’ve only bought parts from them to date, but my boat is scheduled to go in for some mechanical work in the next few weeks, and I will update accordingly. So far they have been fantastic and I’m sure they’ll continue to provide excellent service.

Mehrab was the most professional boat mechanic I have ever met. I’ve gone through several marine Mechic’s until I met Mehrab. I would not trust anyone else with my boat. I highly recommend his services and have referred him to all my friends.

Mehrab our mechanic was excellent. Quick reply and professional service. He was great at diagnosing our oil leak and explaining the repair to us. Mehrab also informed us of possible issues in the future on our 2005 Sea Ray.
