Our Forensic Team at Brookes Bell consists of Materials Scientists, Metallurgists, Coatings Specialists, Tribologists, Fire Investigators and Marine Engineers, we can help when an investigation is required on a Superyacht for:

How it works

Depending upon the requirement, an investigation may be a single component assessment or may involve other team members such as Naval Architects or Marine Engineers.

Working with us

We can offer technical advice to Shipyards, Captain or Superyacht owners even if no incident has occurred, but there may be a dispute over quality.
