Thinking of fixing a vessel but need to know more about her and her background? The IMB will look into the history of a vessel at a member’s request and provide a comprehensive report that can help determine whether this vessel is right for your needs.
Vessel reports also perform a useful background check should you be thinking of purchasing a ship.
Our reports not only supply the essential information about the dimensions of a ship, they can also examine her ownership and management and their areas of expertise, her recent trading pattern, whether she is part of a fleet and if so, what other types of vessel are operated. Together, all this information can help you determine whether these are people you want to do business with and whether the ship is capable of performing the task you want it to do. Vessel reports are a useful tool for saving time and money, and occasionally they provide early warning of malpractice.
