Pre-Vetting Inspection

A good ranking in the OCIMF/SIRE Database is an essential toolfor independent owners of tanker vessels in order to ensure employment for their  vessels. A  Pre-vetting  Inspection  can  help minimizing  or even  eliminating  the  risk  of  negative  observations during  a SIRE Vetting,  thus  maintaining  a  low  observation  score in the database. During a Pre-vetting Inspection we visit the vessel and perform  an in-depth inspection covering  all  areas on board in relation to  the SIRE Vetting  programme  with   special  focus  on   the  Vessel   Inspection Questionnaire (VIQ) in  order  to  prepare  the  essel for an upcoming vetting.

The overall objective is to identify any deficiencies which, according to the inspectors  experience, are likely  to  cause a  negative  response during a SIRE Vetting. During  the  inspection the crew responsible for the various  departments on board  is  given  on the  spot guidance in order to prepare them best possible for a vetting.

The Owner  is  provided  with a detailed report with  recommendations after completion of the Pre-vetting Inspection. The Master is provide with  a  summary  and  guidance  prior  to   the  inspector  leaving  thevessel. 

Pre-Rightship Inspection

In a world where the physical condition of the ship coupled with vesselmanagement systems determine the eventual outcome of the voyage, it is important  for the  charterer to get an all round  evaluation  of the prospective vessel before they are hired. Our superintendents conduct Pre-Rightship inspection to ensure better rating.

Vessel Inspection

1) Pre-Purchase Inspection
2) Condition Evaluation Inspection
3) Charter On-Off Hire Inspection
4) Flag State Inspection
5) Pre-Port State Control Inspection

Condition Assessment of vessels prior to purchase,  technicalmanagement or chartering has  become vital on ensure  trouble free commercial operations.Our experience,together with standardized reporting procedures, guarantees superior service.Thesesuperficialsurveys are aimed at the assessment of the actual technical condition of  ship  hull  and  machinery  by  visual   inspection, examining ships records. Results of surveys are presented in a form of written  report (either of standard layout or provided  by the Customer) in electronic format  and  as  a  hard copy. Enabling you to make the  right choice.Our experienced team of Masters and Chief Engineers well qualified to conduct Flag state inspection on behalf of Flags.

We  also conduct Pre-PSC inspection to assist vessels to avoid detention. The  ISM  code  has  empowered  the  Port  State Control inspectors considerably. So how can we minimize deficiencies or  avoid detention. By  understanding  and  knowing what is required for smooth PSC inspection. Our  superintendents  can assist vessel  to  achieve  Nil Deficiency even  from  tough  PSC  inpectors  like  AMSA, MCA, USCG.The  inspectors  at SeaShore Consultancy  have the necessary skills  to evaluate the  ships  condition and the  management system to give you the  larger  picture.
