    Ocean Marine Surveyors were excellent, professional, and extremely knowledgeable! Highly recommend them for a thorough boat survey. George did a great inspection of our potential purchase boat, and explained things in a way that we could … More understand. Also, I really liked the official survey report we were emailed after the inspection.

  • Avatar Marissa Kramer ★★★★★ 2 years ago
    I contacted George last week for a Survey/Appraisal for insurance purposes for our Retrofitted 1979 ski boat. First of all, George answered the phone right away and he was very patient with me as we talked through the process. I let him … More know that we were under a bit of time constraint and he said he could come to our house that same day, within just a few hours even!! He was punctual and communicated every detail with me during the survey. He worked quickly and even though is was 100 degrees that day, he was professional and very pleasant!! Our report was emailed to us early the next morning and it was very detailed and thorough! I was able to send the appraisal off and we were insured that very same day!! George even sent me a text after our boat’s maiden voyage to check how everything went!! EXCELLENT SERVICE!!! Thanks George!! 😄
  • Avatar First Watch Marine ★★★★★ 2 years ago
    As marine technicians and mechanics, we are always happy to meet other professionals who have a similar focus on quality and service as we do. Yesterday I met George from Ocean Marine Surveyors at a boatyard where we were both involved … More in inspection of a very nice yacht for the potential buyer. I was immediately impressed with his professional appearance and demeanor, and he asked intelligent questions. A pleasure to work with. Highly recommended!
