The large majority of Pierrepont Analysis' NDT work is within the marine industry, for a wide range of international clients including the British America's Cup Team and Hugo Boss. We routinely carry out in-manufacture, damage, insurance and in-service inspections and provide consultancy on NDT procedures and composite construction.

Pierrepont Analysis have the most up to date ultrasound and bond testing equipment, as well as access to CT scanning, and most importantly, know which NDT methods are the most effective for each type of composite structure.


We have extensive knowledge of the most recent advances in carbon composite and monolithic structures, and as experienced boat builders ourselves, we have an excellent understanding of where and why defects are most likely to occur, and are therefore able to advise clients effectively. 

Structures inspected include:

  • Hull, deck and structure

  • Mast and boom

  • rig and rigging

  • Appendages 

  • Steel hull
