I have known Rory for many years and have always found him to be dependable and professional.

I have known Rory for a number of years now and have seen his work first hand, while also recommending him to many other customers over the years. He is good at what he does and is timely in his approach. If you need a Boat survey, I Can highly recommend him. Pierce Purcell – Purcell Marine

I have found Rory to be an Excellent Surveyor who is highly professional and through in his work. He was very easy to deal with and to get the job done. His presentation of the work he completed was extremely easy to under stand and with good detail to work with saving a lot of time and money. I have no hesitation in recommending Rory for any Marine Survey and feel that he will save a lot of heart ache for budding boaters. I look forward to working with him again and hopefully pick up some more of his tips and expertise

Rory carried out a survey on our boat and as well as doing a thorough and professional job and providing a complete report for insurance purposes, he gave lots of advice on work that would need to be done in the future in order to keep the boat in good condition. I would have no hesitation in recommending Rory if you need to have your boat surveyed or are looking to buy a new boat and want a detailed survey carried out on it

If you are wondering do you need a surveyor – you do! Its like if you’re wondering should I reef a sail? – Answer is yes!

We bought our first sailing boat over 10 years ago. We were very lucky to have had Rory with us on that purchase and since. After we owned the boat for a while we realised how invaluable his advice was. We dodged some nightmares because of him. And when you own a boat everyone wants to give you advice but I only take advice from Rory. And I can say with my hand on my heart that he has never once given me anything but correct and practical advice. I might not always have been what I wanted to hear but it was always what was needed to be heard. If you need a surveyor I recommend western surveyors 100%. Thanks Rory for all your help down the years – It was and will continue to be invaluable.

I have had two surveys for insurance renewals carried out in recent years by Rory Carberry of Western Surveyors on our 33ft (10m) sailboat. His work is meticulous and efficient. I would use his service again and recommend it to others.
