Can any body recommend a surveyor in the Netherlands ...Sneek or Loosdrecht area would be good.
I am looking for somebody who will talk boats in general as well as survey as this is a learning curve for me as my back ground is yachts.
Steel is a whole new world...advice welcome

I think the Dutch form of contract is less forgiving than the RYA contract, best read up about it before committing to a deposit.
I would imagine all Dutch surveyors speak English
Good luck, sounds interesting

Rob Dros comes quite recommended.

I found him mentioned in a few past threads when I searched this forum, then when I mentioned him to the lady I'm seeing she told me she and her ex-husband used him for one of their past boats, and that he was very thorough. I plan to use him shortly, therefore - I signed the contract on Friday.

Everyone speaks English here - it's a compulsory subject in school, I'm told. Even supermarket checkout staff speak perfect English.

Oooops. I must've been tired when I wrote my previous comment, because Dros Nautic were second place on my shortlist.

It was Gerard Duursma & Rutger Versluijs who my lass used before, and who surveyed my boat today. They have been advocated by others on this forum in the past, and I found them very capable, helpful and efficient.
