After years of navigation on your ship you will sometimes want something different, to refit or modernise your existing ship, or even change ship. You approach your company banker and your account manager is enthusiastic. But he adds: “Arrange to have your ship valued, because we want a bit of security”.

What to do next! Simple, you call Van Pelt & Co, often your account manager will already suggest our name, and invite us on board for a new valuation of the ship.

It’s nice to know then that your surveyor actually knows what is going on in the market and what the trade is doing at that time. But it’s also reassuring to know that should you have any doubts, about the price specified in a particular quotation or that everything is in order that should be in order etc., that the same surveyor is able to support you with a wealth of knowledge.

Marine Surveyors and Consulting Engineers Van Pelt & Co B.V. on average carries out about 250 valuations per annum on all sorts of inland navigation ships, including container ships, push convoys, bulk barges, pusher tugs, tank vessels, passenger ships etc., so that it is fair to say that considerable knowledge and experience has been accumulated within Van Pelt & Co. We are an important player in this market thanks to this accumulated know-how and experience, the confidence of clients, as well as our database that we have built up over the years.

The valuations are carried out for private individuals, financial institutions and insurance companies, amongst others.

You can arrange to have an valuation carried out by us for:

    financing for a new construction
    financing for refitting a ship
    termination of a business
    inheritance tax
    determining the insured value

Our surveyors are registered in the ’Verenigd Register van Taxateurs’ (VRT), or are training toward this.

Propeller shafts
With renewal of the certificate after 01 January 2015, all the shaft ceilingducts of rudder stocks and of (propeller)shafts need to be conducted, so, that no water polluted lubricants can come out. This means that, also for existing ships, rudder stocks and propeller shafts should provide an outer seal. We advise you, when a rudder stock or propeller shaft must be disassembled for example (damage)repair, to use the opportunity to place an outer seal, including any modification of the rudder stock or propeller shaft.
