I should have added that the insurance surveys we have had done on our boat have taken but a fraction of the time the pre-purchase survey did.

The broker has recommended someone and it appears that this person has an excellent reputation based on web searches.....but I am concerned about any "conflict of interest" issues. Can anyone here recommend a surveyor or two?
chuckle....kinda like the car salesman saying he would be happy to have have a mechanic look her over for you before you buy to ascertain if there are any issues.........

That said people in the business like brokers would know more about which is the best surveyer for a particular type of vessel so are a valuable resource. What you might do is contact a different broker to see what surveyer they would recomend.
Good luck
