SHIP MAIN ENGINE DAMAGE SURVEY CARRIED OUT BY ENGINEER SURVEYORS FROM CONSTELLATION MARINE SERVICES.

BACKGROUND

We, Constellation Marine Services (CMS) as independent ship and marine surveyors, often get instructions from our principals as Hull & Machinery underwriters to attend on board ships to carry out machinery damage surveys.
