Ultrasound Surveys are generally carried out to measure the hull plating thickness on steel narrow boats and yachts. Hundreds of readings are taken around the yachts hull to look for areas where the hull plating is thin.
The Ultrasound Survey is not confined to hulls of steel yachts, bulkheads, decks and structures can also be measured as well as Aluminium and GRP hulls and structures, contact us for your specific requirements.
BMS carries out Ultrasound Surveys on steel yachts as part of a Full Condition Survey. We have the latest ultrasonic thickness gauge instruments, they are non destructive and accurate readings are made without removing any of the paint or filler system. Our primary instrument is the Cygnus 4 multiple echo ultrasonic thickness gauge, for more information on our instruments please follow the link.

A report is provided explaining the findings of the Ultrasound Survey. Within the report problems found during the survey are listed and information given on their importance and recommendations for repair. All the thickness measurements made during the survey including their position will be recorded within the report.
Once the survey has been completed we guarantee to provide the report within ten working days but it is often delivered much sooner. We will spend the time to answer any questions about the survey and are happy to give any yachting advice..
