    Worked with OMS for several years now and coordinated 30+ vessel surveys with OMS. George is punctual, diligent and professional. His reports are detailed and easy to read. He's very responsive and has always provided a quick turnaround … More for reports. Would absolutely recommend OMS.
  • Avatar Chris Doane ★★★★★ 3 months ago
    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.
    Before you buy a boat, get Ocean Marine Surveyors to do a boat survey so you know what you are getting!

Our Marine Survey Services

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 Surveys

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.


Pre-Purchase Surveys

This is the most comprehensive inspection of a vessel. The purpose of the survey is to gather as much information about the condition of the vessel before purchase.


Engine Analysis

If you are planning to purchase a boat, a thorough inspection of the engine and generator installation is a virtual necessity. 


Insurance Surveys

Designed to help insurance underwriters make underwriting decisions based on the condition and general value  of the vessel.


Marine Vessel Appraisals

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


Cargo Damage Reports

When a vessel or cargo sustains damage, it’s important that you notify your insurance company to assign a surveyor.  We will assess the damage and a list of recommended repairs.


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.


Fast Turnaround Time

We understand tight schedules.  Our report turnaround time is the fastest in the industry.  


Qualified Expert

We are experts in our field, a current SAMS Member,  and ABYC Certified in Marine Systems


100% Satisfaction Guarantee
