Al drove down to Maryland (200+ miles) to survey a boat for me last month. His survey was awesome to watch including the infrared scan of the hull, engines, and generator. He found several issues with the boat, many of which I would not have found without his assistance. He was extremely professional, and informative all along the way. I learned a tremendous amount about the boat and all its systems from him during the survey.
The bottom line is that his survey allowed me to renegotiate an already deeply discounted price even further to make accommodations for any issue that may need addressing in the future.
BTW – Feel free to use me as a reference.

Just a little post to tell you all what a hell of a Guy Al Prisco is. Al is not only a competent and extremely thorough surveyor i feel he’s a friend. He was there to answer questions before i even hired him he took his time with me and made me feel like i was in good hands and after seeing him in action i knew i was..
The broker was so impressed with Al that he commented to me that after 12 years in the Boat business he has come across few surveyor’s like Al and none with state of the art equipment like Al has..
Anyone who is serious about buying a boat and wants to know the facts right down to the nitty gritty……Al Prisco is your man!!

I used Al Prisco to survey a boat in Point Pleasant NJ.
He was on time, thorough and delivered the paperwork including oil analysis and photo CD in good order.
I would recommend him.
I was buying to import into Canada so everything was being done by remote and neither my lender or insurance carrier had any problem with his work.
