Periodic Vessel Survey – Fishing Charter Vessel - Jillian

Posted in Recent Projects by Admin 0

The Jillian, a stately former rescue boat, was hand-built in 1969 by renowned Mordialloc boat builder Jack Pompei.  

MSA Surveyor, Mick Uberti had the privilege of completing a Periodic Vessel Survey on this beautifully maintained timber vessel which currently operates as a fishing charter vessel from Rosebud on the Mornington Peninsula.

Captained by brothers Jonathan and Stephen Dart, The Jillian is fun and family-friendly way to explore the bay, learn about the history of the region and catch fish.  With an overall length of 9.5m, The Jillian, which is licensed to carry up to 20 passengers, is a comfortable boat with a long, safe and successful history, and has delighted thousands of fisherman over the years with fishing trips to remember. 

With her long and illustrious service history, she is a significant part of Port Phillip Bay’s maritime history where she has been working as a charter vessel for over 40 years. 

To book your next fishing trip, visit  or call Steve and John on 0418 148 426.

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.
