    I just put an offer in on a sailboat in the BVI's. I now need to settle on a surveyor to conduct a thorough pre purchase survey. I don't know the area very well but I was able to find the following websites. So far, no one has returned my calls or emails 4 days ago.

    Thanks in advance...

    We had Geoffrey at WestIndiesMarineSurveyorys do our survey when we bought the boat and he did a good job.

    Are you in the BVI’s? Have you looked at the boat in person? Are you going to be there for the survey? If you are there I believe that Geoffrey works out of Nanny key.
