Established in 1888, one of the oldest and most respected Marine Surveying companies in the world.
McAusland Turner is the oldest Marine Surveying and Consulting firm in continuous operation in the Port of Hull. A history on which clients place their trust, whether surveyors are working locally or globally.
Our name is synonymous with quality in the world of Marine Surveying. The Company is a member of the Team Humber Marine Alliance and our Surveyors and Consultants, who bring a unique blend of expertise and practical skills, are represented in the Honourable Company of Master Mariners, The Nautical Institute, The Institute of Marine Engineering, Science & Technology, The British Association of Cargo Surveyors and the International Institute of Marine Surveying.
Our Company was endorsed as official P & I Club representatives as long ago as 1916 and that relationship has stood the test of time. In addition to representing P and I Cubs, we are instructed to act on behalf of Underwriters and Insurers, the Marine Industry at large, the Legal Profession and Government Bodies. We are also Lloyd’s Agents for the East Coast of England stretching from Berwick in the North to Felixstowe in the South.
Our team of marine surveyors are almost exclusively drawn from all areas of sea-going personnel into which we are blending shore trained surveyors. With around 250 years of sea-going experience between us there is a wealth of knowledge and expertise on which to draw. Surveyors have written industry recognised guides on cargoes, give presentations to clients around the world and currently sit on the UK P & I Club’s Carefully to Carry Committee. Professionalism, dedication, integrity are the key principles upon which our history was shaped and which continues to take us into the future..
A consultant is an experienced professional that is trained to analyze and provide a client with expert advice in order to help the client make the best possible choices. Standing by that definition McAusland Turner is a leading marine and engineering consultancy and are trusted advisors to the world’s leading marine institutions.
We have an enviable depth of both functional and industry expertise as well as breadth of geographical reach. Our scale, scope, and knowledge allow us to address the problems that matter. At heart, we are a network of people who are passionate about their work, enthusiastic in their approach and driven to provide the level of expertise demanded by our global client base.
‘Ever since the Phoenicians introduced the early principles of general average, there has existed a need for cargo surveyors. It is often perceived that only cargo insurers appoint cargo surveyors. However, it must be remembered that all parties involved in the transportation and handling of goods have the need, on occasion, for independent cargo surveyors, be they shipowners, P & I Clubs, cargo insurers, charterers, stevedores, storage contractors or agents.’ So begins the Lloyd’s Survey Handbook.
