Boat Buyers / Boat Owners

A most sincere welcome. My name is Geoff Grainger and I am the proprietor of this site. I have been a full-time practicing marine surveyor since 2010. If you want to know more about me, you can visit the About Us page. This site has been around since the mid-nineties but I took over in 2021 and I am developing it to be a resource for YOU.

You are most likely here with one of the following inquiries:

I need a marine surveyor.

Great! We are the only site that lists credentialed marine surveyors exclusively, from SAMS and / or NAMSGlobal, the two most reputable organizations in the US with members all over the world. There are “Find a Surveyor” buttons all over the site.

What is a marine surveyor and why should I get one?

Of course! It was not long ago I had to get my first one for my boat and I had never heard of the profession and what it involved. Very common question and I will direct you to our FAQs section. Your answers are top of the list.

How do I become a marine surveyor?

Fantastic! Like many trades, we have more skilled people retiring than starting up. We are short-handed and this is a great way to make a good income and have a great life. For now, I have some FAQs just for you. Check in with us again as I am developing a whole other section, just for you.

What am I missing?

This is a question for you! I am sure I have not thought of everything and I want this to be the best resource. If you have looked through our content and still have a question, email me and ask it. Just please be patient. I am still a practicing marine surveyor and have a family too, probably like you.
