What Makes Our Company Different

What Our Clients Have to Say

Providing Boat Surveys for All Chula Vista Marinas

Proudly serving all of San Diego including all Chula Vista marinas.  Let our boat surveys help you get the true value and condition of your vessel.

Chula Vista Marina

A tropical paradise awaits boaters and non boaters alike at Chula Vista Marina. Since 1984, this popular marina has made a name for itself by providing clean and well maintained facilities. Features over 550 slips and numerous amenities.

Safe Harbor South Bay

Home to over 350 single slips supporting vessels between 25' to 65', Safe Harbor South Bay is known as one of the finest marinas in the San Diego area. The marina welcomes both boaters and families alike with a quiet, calm, and peaceful environment.

Pre-Purchase Surveys

A boat or ocean vessel can be one of the most expensive purchases you will make. Let us help you with your decision.

Damage Assessments

Determining the level of damage is critical to any inspection.  We can help ensure you have an accurate assessment.

Insurance Surveys

We identify the vessel, its equipment, condition and general value while inspecting for defects and damages.  Let us help you make smart underwriting decisions.


Marine Vessel Appraisals

Vessel appraisals consist of an inspection and report designed to provide you with thoroughly researched fair market value.


Cargo Damage Reports

Cargo and container surveys are performed to determine the extent and cause of the damage during transport.


Sea Trials

The goal of any sea trial is to test the propulsion systems and controls in real-life conditions.  Sea trials are important as vessels cannot be thoroughly assessed while inside a marina.

Our Guarantee

We guarantee our marine surveys to be accepted by your bank and insurance underwriter. If our survey is rejected due to the quality or limitations of the report, simply have the underwriter (not the agent or broker) forward us a letter on company letterhead stating the reason for the rejection, and the survey fee will be promptly refunded.
