About Us

Our Firm

All Ship & Cargo Surveys, Ltd. (ASCS) has been in the marine survey business in Honolulu for more than 30 years. The experience of our surveyors range from condition surveys of recreational boats to marine related cargo surveys to surveys of major fire and collision damages to large sea going vessels, and major machinery casualties. The inspection and certification of cranes by ASCS commenced in 1988.

Our firm has conducted over 4000 crane inspections. Over the years, we have also been involved in conducting ship condition/damage surveys for Lloyd’s Register of Shipping, The Salvage Association, Bureau Veritas and various world-wide steamship companies.

Based on past crane certification, marine surveying and consulting experiences, we believe that we have a definite service to offer where professionalism and thoroughness are the criteria. Our survey reports provide a complete third-party evaluation of the equipment at the time of inspection.
