A survey is followed by a report on condition including pictures and relevant references.


Divergent Yachting can be present at every stage to assist with the construction of a brief or full specification for the client alongside their designer to ensure the clients vessel achieves the required goals.

Consideration will be given to every part of the clients vessel – the appearance, accommodation requirements, interior layout and functionality, machinery, technical requirements, quality of equipment, safety, classification and Flag State requirements.

Contracts will then be reviewed and in conjunction with the clients’ legal advisers, an appropriate contract will be drawn up to ensure a satisfactory result for every party involved.


Divergent Yachting will oversee every step to ensure the vessel is constructed (re-fitted) in adherence of the standards set out in the relevant Classification Society or Flag State documents.
