    Very easy and efficient company to work with. Got the survey scheduled for 3 days out. Jeff showed up on time and did a thorough job. Even gave me a quick email to let me know there were no major issues right after he finished. Had the … More survey in my email next day. Complete and explained well with great pictures too. Very highly recommend Ocean Marine Surveyors!
  • Avatar Joe Rasic ★★★★★ 5 months ago
    We called several surveyors before deciding on Ocean Marine. The office team was great. They answered my questions since I am a first time boat owner. They walked me through the process and were great. On the day of the survey, Jeff … More was early and prepared. He went through just about every detail on the boat. The report came back to us about 36 hours later and had great details and insight. 100% recommend!

    George was easy to work with and very knowledgeable. He pointed out a number of positives as well as areas that needed work with the boat we had surveyed.
    We feel much better with the choice we made with the added input.
  • Avatar Harold Raleigh ★★★★★ 3 months ago
    Very professional surveyor who missed nothing. This was very helpful in my buying decision which was no. It saved me about $6000 in labor plus parts. Good looking boat with unseen issues. Thanks for saving my neck. Will use again.
