Zeroing in on a fiberglass, cummins-powered Grand Banks in the RI/MA region and looking for recommendations for both general & engine surveyors. The seller's broker has his preferred contact(s) though wanted to put it out there to the Trawler Forum world if they have anyone they recommend.

Much Appreciated!

A friend of mine has used Johnson marine services for two boats for general surveys and was pretty happy with them. They are out of RI.

I would never use the broker's or seller's surveyor. I find a certified mechanic for the engines. I have a Yanmar, so I used the closest Yanmar certified tech for the engines.

Check Northeast Regional Section

Either here or THT (or others). It's common question and you'll find some good leads on surveyors/diesels there.
