1. Pre-purchase Inspections / Condition Assessment Surveys / Damage Surveys

FG Maritime can inspect and survey any kind of vessel based on strong competencies and experience of its team. Several vessels were attended for pre-purchase inspections, condition assessment surveys, damage surveys in Turkey, Caspian Sea countries and Europe where we can mobilize our team easily.

Following the company specific reporting requirements is very easy for the experienced FG Maritime inspectors upon having an effective remote familiarization.

3. PSC Pre-Inspections / PSC Deficiency Follow Up Surveys

We assist shipowners/managers either for Paris MoU or BlackSea Mou PSC inspections by attending the vessels and identify potential PSC deficiencies in advance. Ex-class surveyors, ex-masters/chief engineers of our team are very good at not only for highlighting the deficiencies but also classifying the priorities based on similar approaches followed by PSC regimes.

We also attend vessels for PSC rectification surveys to assist shipowners regarding supervision of repairs, communication with PSC,FSA and class societies to release the vessel without causing further delays.
