I was not able to attend my new sailboat's survey on Hilton Head Island, South Carolina and relied on Nick to be my eyes and ears. Nick did a great job and produced a very detailed and thorough report. Competitive rates, dependable, timely communications and excellent work.

Thank you, Nick for your diligence in regard to the marine survey inspection on an offshore racing sailboat. As good as the boat looked from the outside, you saved me, finding critically flawed areas of the boat that could have been dangerous on the water. Thank you for your professionalism.

I can recommend, without reservation Charleston Marine Survey for anyone that requires a marine survey whether it be it to purchase a used boat or for an insurance claim. I was very impressed with the thorough job he did going through all the systems on my sailboat and his responsiveness to my needs to get the job done quickly. If you need a confident marine survey, I highly recommend Nick to do the job for you.

During the past twenty years, I have used several marine surveyors for pre-purchase surveys and sea trials. I have never met one surveyor who was more professional than Nick Lombardi at Charleston Marine Survey. Nick is an excellent listener; and, he really cared about my specific concerns and needs. In spite of the physical distance between us, Nick gave me total peace of mind during our transaction. He was very timely in all of our communications (even on the weekend). If I ever have the need for a marine surveyor in the Charleston, SC region again, Nick Lombardi will be the first person I call.

I have had the wonderful opportunity to purchase a few boats in my time and Nick at Charleston Marine Survey was the best experience I have had with a surveyor. He was incredible with communication and follow up from the very moment we contracted him all the through the process to very end where he went back again to verify all the works that the broker promised to be sorted. I highly recommend him and will use him no matter where my boat is purchased - he was that good!

How could I not give Nick from Charleston Marine Survey a 5 star rating? I reached out to Nick for completing a survey for a boat which I was working on submitting a contract for. Nick was extremely helpful through the entire process, providing guidance and availability as I submitted my contract. Unfortunately, my contract did not get accepted by the seller, but Nick was still there to help, with him knowing he wasn't going to be able to complete the survey for me. You can tell that this company puts the client first, acts in good faith, and has a high level of integrity. Thank you again for your help, it was a pleasure working with you!

When considering a marine surveyor, I wanted a competent, experienced and trustworthy professional who was highly technically proficient and passionate about his work. Nick is all that and then some. His fully outlined 37 page report was not only extensive and descriptive, but also contained many photos and full explanations that were easy to comprehend. I highly recommend his services to anyone investing in a vessel.

Nick, of Charleston Marine Survey, recently completed a marine survey on my boat. I was totally impressed with the degree of detail and thoroughness of Nick’s inspection and summary report. I have only had one other marine survey and there was no comparison. Nick’s survey was informative, unparalleled, detail specific and meaningful. Very satisfying to deal with a professional. Nick had excellent communication and follow-up from the initial contact through the entire process. Nick raises the bar for Marine Surveyors – he is a competent, experienced, trustworthy professional who is proficient and passionate about his work. I appreciate the time he spent to thoroughly inspect all aspects of the boat. In addition, he was friendly and took the time to explain his findings – a very educational experience. Thank you for the excellent service. Your knowledge and willingness to share it was appreciated. I can and will recommend you to anyone in need of a marine surveyor. Please feel free to use my name if you ever need a reference.

I worked with Nick on two powerboats and I have to say I was very impressed with his work. I haven't had too much experience with surveyors, so I did not know what to expect. First I will say, Nick was extremely attentive and easy to reach via phone and email. Almost always answering first call, if not calling me back immediately. I did not know Nick well, but he was very friendly, personable, blunt, and a good feeling of honesty. When it came to his work, he was very detail oriented. At the end of survey, he would always call and give the full report immediately over the phone. Listing off all the all the minor and major issues with the boat, which includes a sea trial in the price. Within a week, Nick wrote a full report of the entire survey. The report added up to be 44 pages long. I was expecting maybe a 3-5 page document. BUT 44 PAGES! That's 20 pages longer than any paper I wrote in college. Really sums up the effort and time he puts into each survey. Anyways, I feel I got my money's worth and in the future when I look for my next boat in life I will be calling Nick.
