  • Avatar Zach N ★★★★★ a month ago
    I had a great experience with Jeff from Ocean Marine Surveyors. He did the pre-purchase survey of my 1984 Islander Bahama 30, Carol Marie, in July 2022. He arrived twenty minutes early and was very professional. He also came out on only … More a few day’s notice. Jeff did a review of all of the systems on the boat and prepared a three tiered report on the findings with comments as well as a separate survey for the insurer. I felt that the price he arrived at was fair and very close to what I’d worked out with the seller. He also provided the survey and report in a very timely manner. The survey was on a Friday and I had the survey and report on Monday, which was critical as far as getting insurance and slip applications finished up on time. I highly recommend Jeff and Ocean Marine Surveyors if you have the need for a survey.

When a vessel 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.
