Don’t expect what you don’t inspect!

                                                              – Ben Brown


Whoever coined the phrase “never judge a book by its cover” should have included boats as well. For most of us, buying a boat can be an emotional purchase, so before you sign on the dotted line, you need a qualified expert who will look at your new-found love with a skeptical eye and make fact-based assessments about her electrical and mechanical systems, construction, condition, and current market value. With a detailed report in hand that outlines what is shipshape and what is not, you’ll be better prepared to make a sound decision.

Located in Myrtle Beach, SC, Long Bay Marine is committed to providing quality yacht and small craft surveys that will help you gain a deeper understanding of the condition of the vessel and give you peace of mind in your investment.
