Save time and money

Prevent Survey inspects the underwater hulls of ships and boats using an underwater drone. Inspection using a drone is faster and more affordable than a traditional inspection using divers or than inspection in dry dock or on the slipway, saving you time and money. The cost per hour for the drone with surveyor is € 125.–, excluding travel expenses, milage and VAT.

How does an underwater drone work?

The surveyor brings the underwater drone to you on location. The underwater drone will be deployed to take a number of photographs, films and sonar images during the inspection, to give you a good idea of the vessel’s condition below the waterline. The average inspection take about 3 hours, excluding the travel time and the time for drawing up a report.

The underwater drone is a professional unit that is equipped with both a sonar system and a HD underwater camera. Within a few hours, you will have a complete overview of the vessel, even in turbid water. The inspection therefore provides information on the condition of the hull, for example, or of the rudder, the propeller, or other parts of interest.

Monitoring and reporting

You can view the images made by the drone in real time on a screen during the inspection. We can also record the images for you to look at later and, if required, produce a detailed report of the survey.
