Guido Beekmann has more than 30 years’ experience in the yacht industry. As an independent yacht surveyor with own company Beekmann Expertise, he offers services such as purchase surveys, valuations and investigations. Helping private customers, he also frequently writes reports for parties involved in disputes and settlements. “Clients appreciate that I do the complete survey,” Beekmann says, and continues: “but what I really like is when they join me during the survey of the boat. Then we can go through everything together and they can ask me any questions they might have right then and there.”
