Periodic Vessel Survey – Fishing Charter Vessel – Barrel Buster

Posted in Recent Projects by Admin 0

Operated by Fish On Charters in Carrum, the Fishing Charter Vessel,  ‘Barrel Buster’ is a 9.1m custom-built Clayton Gallant, built by Clayton Marine in South Australia.

Surveyed under 2D and 2C Survey, she delivers unforgettable fishing experiences chasing Snapper in Port Phillip Bay and Tuna in the waters off Portland.

Maritime Survey Australia recently completed a Periodic Vessel Survey on this impressive and beautifully maintained vessel.  Powered by a 310 h.p. Volvo Penta, she is able to reach a top speed of 30 knots, while comfortable cruising at 20 knots.  Fully equipped with the latest fish finding equipment including a Furuno 585 Sounder and Garmin 5012 Radar, she also boasts a Lowrance HDS 10 GPS and Icon HF, GME VHF and 27 Meg Radios to safely lead you to the best fishing spots.  Her fully enclosed cabin with a CD player, dry seating and a private toilet, promises to deliver a comfortable fishing experience on even the wettest days.

Do you have a vessel that is due for its survey in accordance with its survey certificates?

Contact Maritime Survey Australia today to discuss your project requirements.

Our Marine Surveyors are accredited with the Australian Maritime Safety Authority (AMSA), members of the Royal Institution of Naval Architects (RINA) and members of the certifying authority of the International Institute of Marine Surveying (IIMS). We believe we have the most competitive rates offering the best value to Victorian commercial vessel operators. The benefits of using Maritime Survey Australia ensure that the vessel operator has to engage with only one company. Unlike many of our competitors, our Surveyors are experienced Marine Engineers, Masters and Naval Architects accredited for ALL categories including periodic electrical and communication meaning you do not need to engage with a third party to complete the survey.

The survey is carried out accurately interpreting standards and guidelines, and applying rules and/or regulatory requirements.

The owner will be informed of any deficiencies discovered during the survey of a vessel that requires repair, replacement or action and will be recorded on a survey activity report, a copy of which will be given the owner or owner's representative at the time of the survey. We will remain impartial in all of our business dealings, and we will never conduct business in a manner which could place our business integrity or impartiality at risk or question.
