I/We do hereby retain NAUTICAL SERVICE TECHNOLOGIES, Inc. for the purpose of conducting a Marine Vessel Inspection and/or Consulting Services in accordance with customary and generally accepted marine survey practices; and where applicable, issue a written report to the individual or organization named herein. Said report will include a description of the vessel, statements of condition of the vessel observed at the time of the inspection and an opinion of value based on the condition encountered at the time of inspection.

Agreed Fees: The inspection and report shall be conducted for an agreed fee.  The fee shall be based on the current NST rate schedule.  All fees and expenses shall be due upon completion of the inspection.  All payments if unpaid when due, shall bear interest at the rate of 1.5% per month from the due date until paid plus cost of collection.

Best Efforts:  The surveyor will use his best efforts to conduct the Survey Inspection and issue the Report of Survey in a timely manor, however no warranty is made for time of completion.

Limited Report:  No part of the Report is issued as an expressed or implied warranty of the condition of the vessel, of the value of the vessel or the cost of any repairs.  Unless specifically stated, the report is based on visual examination of the vessel only and is not to include inspection of areas normally concealed, requiring disassembly; or operation of machinery and systems.  Any statements, recommendations, or conclusions are the opinion of the surveyor based on his level of skill, training, and expertise.

Acceptance and use of this report by the client acknowledges the client’s understanding that the report has been composed of information that is believed to be true after reasonable investigation and inquiry but is not warranted to be so. The information was obtained without drilling, diving, ultrasonics, cleaning or opening up to expose parts or conditions ordinarily concealed. There were no tests for tightness or soundness conducted other than the conditions noted visually. Acceptance and use of this report acknowledges the client’s understanding that no determination of stability or structural strength has been made and no opinion is expressed. Acceptance and use of this report acknowledges the client’s understanding that NST does not accept any responsibility for damage or deterioration not found or discovered during the course of survey, nor for consequential damage, deterioration or loss due to any error or omission.

Limit of Liability:  The above named party agrees that the surveyor, his agents or employees will not be liable for any claim, or loss or damages arising out of, in connection with or incident to the work relating to the Inspection or Report except, that caused by the direct sole negligence of the surveyor.  Such negligence shall not be legally presumed but must be affirmatively established.  Such liability shall continue for a period of sixty (60) days from completion of the work.  In the event that the Client proves that the loss, damage, delay or expense was caused by the negligence, gross negligence or willful default of the Surveyor/Consultant aforesaid, then, save where loss, damage, delay or expense has resulted from the Surveyor’s/Consultant’s personal act or omission committed with the intent to cause same or recklessly and with knowledge that such loss, damage, delay or expense would probably result, the Surveyor’s/Consultant’s liability for each incident or series of incidents giving rise to a claim or claims shall never exceed a sum for any loss, cost, penalty, or damages in excess of the aggregate sum of $1,000.00 for property damage and $2,500.00 for personal injury or death.  The surveyor shall specifically not be liable for incidental, special, or consequential damages; nor loss or use, loss of profits/earnings, crews wages/shares, salvage, tug expenses, demurrage, loss of time, loss of freight, loss of charter and/or similar and/or substituted expenses.  It is understood that the surveyor’s charges are based upon this limited liability undertaking.

Opinions:  The professional opinion of the surveyor can not be compromised in the performance of the survey or in the report of his findings.  The Report will be issued without regard to such matters as finance or insurance.  The surveyor reserves the right to terminate employment with full fees earned if requested to compromise his professional opinion.


Termination:  The customer may terminate the inspection and survey by giving written notice to the surveyor.  The customer will pay the surveyor for work completed to the point of termination, at the surveyorÂ’s normal hourly rate including expenses incurred and required for the surveyor to return to his office.
