Finding a marine surveyor just got even easier following the launch of the free Marine Surveyor Search App featuring over 700 surveyors from around the world.

The International Institute of Marine Surveying (IIMS) has launched a new free App for iOS and Android device users that makes finding a yacht or small craft marine surveyor by area, or specialisation, fast and simple.

The Marine Surveyor Search App is the next generation search tool and makes searching for a surveyor easier for the boating and yachting public, vessel owners, yacht brokers, marine insurers - in fact anyone needing the services of a marine surveyor on a one-off, occasional or ongoing basis. 

The App can be downloaded in the usual way from either the Google Play Store or App Store. Just browse your App provider for’ Marine Surveyor Search’.

Commenting on this bold initiative, Mike Schwarz, IIMS Chief Executive Officer, said, “IIMS has made a significant investment in App technology to make the process of finding a marine surveyor simple. The project has taken a year to scope out and complete, but it lifts the digital offering and activities of IIMS to the next level. I am delighted at the ease of use and simplicity of the App, how fast it is to find a surveyor and to connect with them at the push of a button.”

The Marine Surveyor Search App has been developed in partnership with eDot Solutions, Goa, the company that has already successfully delivered two other Apps for IIMS members.

The App content is drawn from the current IIMS practicing surveyor membership, which has been loaded and displayed in its entirety into the App - some 700+ active surveyors in over 100 countries worldwide to browse and choose from.

Key features of the App include:
- the ability to search a marine surveyor by regional location

- create a list of your favourites
- see previously viewed surveyors with ease
- put a call through to your chosen surveyor at the press of a button for a quote
