What’s more, Brookes Bell is an industry leader in providing safe, innovative and practical design solutions that provide the perfect balance between creative vision and regulatory compliance.

Brookes Bell: your complete 360º superyacht solution

Superyachting is a glamorous industry but it’s always reassuring to know that there is one company to turn to if things go wrong. 

Whether it’s a mechanical failure or grounding, paint dispute, fire or flood, Brookes Bell’s respected in-house surveyors will forensically investigate every aspect of the incident.

Superyacht technical consultancy and dispute resolution

Brookes Bell is a leading provider of technical consultancy services to shipyards, builders and vessel owners and can provide independent assessment of a quality issue or defect at any stage. 

Even when no failure or incident has occurred, a dispute may still arise over construction quality or materials used. Brookes Bell can help with any aspect of the dispute and achieve a resolution.

In the event that the dispute goes further, we have a strong reputation of being the ‘go to’ firm for expert witness skills, technical dispute resolution, forensic analysis and casualty investigation and you can rely on us to represent you when needed. 

Superyacht surveying services

Our surveyors use the latest technologies, such as 3D laser scanning, to allow for fast and accurate documentation of the condition of a vessel – providing hull and machinery surveys for collision damage, groundings, structural failures, condition surveys, repair surveys and pre-purchase or post-delivery surveys. 

Superyacht incident investigation services

Our multi-disciplinary team of highly qualified experts, including Master Mariners, marine engineers, naval architects, metallurgists, non-destructive testing experts and fire investigators, have investigated superyacht incidents and casualties for over 30 years. 

The ‘go to’ superyacht consultancy

Our wealth of practical experience means we enjoy a reputation as being the “go to” firm at every stage of the superyacht life cycle and are proud to count the world’s most eminent P&I clubs, owners, underwriters, lawyers, salvors and shipyards as our clients.

We also recognise that the superyacht industry is constantly changing, which is why we place a strong emphasis on innovation; continually seeking out better ways of tackling superyacht issues. 

Whatever your project or requirements, Brookes Bell can combine the right mix of talent and expertise to ensure you only require a single supplier - saving you time and money.
