'Having considered a number of surveyors, I asked Mark Wiater of BMS to survey a vessel which I potentially wished to purchase. I was delighted with the finished comprehensive report on the vessel. I would not hesitate to recommend his services as a surveyor'

Who Are BMSUK?

Bodrum Marine Services was formed in 1994 to fill the requirement in Turkey and the Eastern Mediterranean for professional small craft surveyors, due its success and demand it has now expanded from its core business of marine surveying to include the supervision of new builds and major refits. In 2010 the company relocated to the UK as BMSUK (Oxon) Ltd.

Why Choose BMS Surveyors?

Care should be taken when choosing a Marine Surveyor as the industry is unregulated meaning any individual can set themselves up and call themselves a Marine Surveyor

There are two internationally recognised British based organisations that represent surveyors. The International Institute of Marine Surveying (IIMS) and The Yacht Desigers and Surveyors Association (YDSA). All surveyors are vetted before they can join either of these organisations and to keep their membership both organisations have systems which ensure continuous professional develoment.

Mark Wiater, BMSUK's principal surveyor is a member of both organisations listed above and has been a member of the MCA comittee of the YDSA. We have accredited surveyors in most regions of the world allowing us to mimise travel costs and guarantee a fast responce time.

Our services, as marine surveyors and consultants are indemnified by full professional indemnity insurance underwritten at Lloyds of London.

Please contact us if you have any questions or complete the survey enquiry form and we’ll be happy to help.
