Home to 367 miles of beautiful gulf shoreline and 3,300 miles of bay-estuary-lagoon shoreline, South Texas has a lot to offer boaters.  However before you explore Clearlake, Galveston Bay and the Gulf of Mexico, it is essential that you obtain a marine survey prior to purchasing a vessel.  If you are in the market to buy, sell, or simply insure a boat, let Bay Marine Surveyors give you the peace of mind that comes with a comprehensive marine survey.

Investing in Peace of Mind

Purchasing a boat is potentially one of the largest investments you will ever make which is why it’s so important to learn as much as you can about the condition and value of the vessel before you buy.  If you plan on buying, selling, or insuring a boat, then it’s important to have a comprehensive marine survey performed to help you make an informed decision.
