GRP Craft & Wooden Yacht Surveyors

Established in 1999, Ark Surveys under the ownership of Lawrence Weldon, offers a professional yacht consultancy and surveying service. Based at his office in Maldon, he routinely operates throughout Essex and East Anglia and will visit the South Coast by arrangement.

Lawrence is experienced with most types of craft, both sail and power, in wood and GRP. Prior to setting up Ark Surveys, he started with a five-year apprenticeship at McGruer & Co of Scotland, followed by a further four years formal training in traditional boat building techniques. He then later moved to the south east of England, and for the following eighteen years dedicated his time to working on modern yacht productions within the wider marine industry.

He now offers a comprehensive service for owners of private craft of most types. He is approachable, practical and operates on straightforward terms.
