Periodic Annual Vessel Survey

Tim Muir

Home / Recent Projects / Patrol Vessel - Tim Muir

Maritime Survey Australia completed the annual periodic survey of the Port of Melbourne Corporation’s (POMC) ‘Steber 38’ all weather, fiberglass high-speed patrol vessel, MV Tim Muir.

The MV Tim Muir, deployed in 2010 and named after the POMC’s late Harbour Master, continues to play a vital role in the POMC’s Steer Clear campaign, keeping operators of small and recreational vessels safe in Port Phillip bay.

Working in cooperation with Victoria Water Police, Marine Safety Victoria and Parks Victoria, the Steer Clear campaign highlights the dangers for small recreational boats of anchoring in the shipping lanes of Port Phillip Bay. It also warns the operators of small boats to keep clear of large ships transiting Port Philip Bay.

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.

All our surveyors are also accredited with the International Institute of Marine Surveying, RINA, AIMS, and IMarEST.

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.
