    I used Ocean Marine when purchasing my 1954 K-38 sailboat, "Valentine".
    They did a fantastic job. They were honest, fair and very professional. Scheduling the appointment was very easy as Tonya in the office is very prompt,
    … More available and professional.
    They sent their wood boat expert Jeff. He is a great guy and extremely knowledgable. Has experience running boatyard. Fiberglass, steel and wood knowledge...
    He went above and beyond, and stopped to explain what he saw along the way... Will use them again and highly recommend!
    Excellent group of marine professionals and knowledge.

    I had a great experience with Jeff from Ocean Marine Surveyors. He did the pre-purchase survey of my 1984 Islander Bahama 30, Carol Marie, in July 2022. He arrived twenty minutes early and was very professional. He also came out on only … More a few day’s notice. Jeff did a review of all of the systems on the boat and prepared a three tiered report on the findings with comments as well as a separate survey for the insurer. I felt that the price he arrived at was fair and very close to what I’d worked out with the seller. He also provided the survey and report in a very timely manner. The survey was on a Friday and I had the survey and report on Monday, which was critical as far as getting insurance and slip applications finished up on time. I highly recommend Jeff and Ocean Marine Surveyors if you have the need for a survey.

    I’m a happy customer and would use them again if I ever buy another boat.

    Ocean Marine was a great experience. They were prompt, courteous, patient, and thorough. I didn’t know much about boats, and they came out and answered all my questions and concerns. They were extremely patient as they knew I was a layman. … More Their report was straightforward and honest which is exactly what I wanted. I will definitely use them again.
