Desk-top Valuation Of Marine Assets

For over 40 years, ValuStrat has been providing multi-asset class valuation services to clients from all sectors, including marine appraisals which are an integral part of that offering. Our Industrial Consulting division provides RICS compliant valuation reporting for all types of marine assets for any project and purpose. In addition to a full appraisal based on a physical survey of the assets, we also provide ‘Desk-top Valuations’ for marine assets whenever a physical survey is not possible or feasible, or perhaps when it is really not required; e.g. if the assets have been already surveyed recently and just an updated valuation is required. Desk-top Valuations is one of the key services offered by our Industrial Consulting division to clients across the world who would like to benefit from our valuation and technical expertise, but don’t require the assistance for surveys.

Being online/desk-top, our proposition offers significant cost savings as we utilise our internal capabilities, expertise, know-how and databases to derive asset values remotely without having the need to physically inspect an asset. Besides the cost-benefit, it also aims to improve turnaround times for report deliveries as on-site visits are not required, helping clients reach better decisions at a faster pace.
