About Us

Marine Surveyor




     Tranquil Waters Marine Services was created in 1995 in order to provide you, your lending institution and your insurance company with vital information about the integrity of your vessel. If you have suffered a casualty, we will help you and your insurance company to determine the nature, cause and extent of the damage. This page is intended to better acquaint you with Tranquil Waters. So, welcome aboard, and let us know if you have any questions or comments.



We perform a wide array of marine surveys, ranging from sailing and power yachts (fiberglass, wooden and steel) to barges, tug boats and fishing vessels. Our responsibility is to provide you with an unbiased and objective assessment of the vessel in question, based upon our experience and knowledge base. We do not compromise and we do not deviate from our ethical responsibilities.


After twenty-five years of surveying boats in the waters of the lower bay, we felt it was time to change venue, and so, have left Virginia for St. Michaels, Maryland. While in the commonwealth we met many hard working and talented individuals and are honored to have crossed their paths.

Once settled, we hope to continue surveying on the eastern shore for several years to come. So, for of those who have used our services in the past, thanks a whole heap. And to those who might be interested in a surveyor on the eastern shore, we will be open for business in December.
