    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!! 😄

    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!

    I contacted George about doing a survey on a boat, he really bent over backwards to accommodate my schedule, even tho He was very booked. As it turned out, we decided against the boat purchase, but George was very understanding and cancelled … More the survey and refunded my monies. If I find another boat in that area, I will definitely call George! JRC

    George is a lifesaver, I have a wooden 1971 Grand Banks Classic that marinas do not want in their marina, because of other bad experiences. When George wrote an extensive report and valued my yacht higher than purchase price, George recognized … More all of the work was done and wrote the report accordingly. Now marinas are much more accepting of letting me dock my boat pretty much anywhere! Thanks George!

    George was not able to make it so he sent his best guy Jeff. It was a pleasure to talk and work with him inspecting the boat. Very informative and honest. A diligent worker that I would use everytime moving forward. Thanks guys for all … More your efforts you make yacht buying easy.

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.

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


Qualified Expert
