Past Client's Comments

Paul, We just appreciate all you are doing for us so much! It really made our day to meet with you and see how detailed and knowledgeable you are! We feel we are in good hands with your judgment and are so glad we found your website and you! Thanks again for all your work and we look forward to meeting with you for the complete report and photos.


Hello Paul, I received the hard copy of your report this morning. Thank you for your prompt and professional attention to my request. I am impressed with the standard of your work and the attention to detail. I am also investigating the possibility of shipping more boats out of Florida in the near future, so potentially we may hear more of each other.

Hi Paul,
Wanted to pass on our thanks to you for such a detailed and thorough report. As we are unable at this time to travel to view the boat you are our eyes. We feel more at ease after reading your report and we are now in a position to have the few things you identified rectified before shipment we are extremely grateful for your professionalism.
Thanks again,

I will provide a Marine Survey as local service to the following areas: East and West Coast of Central Florida including St. Johns River waterway. This area encompasses St Augustine to Ft. Pierce on the East Florida coast and Steinhatchee to Bradenton on the West Florida Coast. I cover all of the St. Johns River from Jacksonville south to Sanford as well as all lakes in the Central Florida area from Gainesville to the southern shores of Lake Okeechobee. Florida cities located within this region include: Flagler Beach, Palm Coast, Ormond Beach, Daytona Beach, Port Orange, Edgewater, Titusville, Merritt Island, Port Canaveral, Melbourne, Cocoa Beach, Grant, Sebastian, Vero Beach, Port St. Lucie, Ocala, Crystal River, Spring Hill, Palm Harbor, Hudson, Tarpon Springs, Dunedin, Clearwater, Tampa, Apollo Beach, Ruskin, Gibsonton, St. Petersburg, Treasure Island, Indian Harbor, Safety Harbor, Yankeetown, Deland, Deltona, Lake Monroe, Orange City, Leesburg, Tavares, Orlando, and Kissimmee as well as their surrounding communities. If your marine survey is located outside this area or out of Florida please inquire about our discounted travel expenses. (407) 758-6593

I have performed many "buyer sight unseen" boat and yacht pre purchase marine surveys at the request of clients from several U.S. states as well as numerous offshore countries including Australia, Bermuda, Bahamas, Canada, Denmark, France, Germany, Greece, Ireland, Italy, Jamaica, Mexico, Norway, Puerto Rico, Spain, United Kingdom, and Turkey. My survey reports are written in a style that allows the reader to visualize the vessel, and it's components, as it is being described. I also provide many pictures, usually between 100-200, that you will not see in advertisements or listings. This combination makes you feel like you have observed the boat and witnessed the survey yourself.
