Accurate, thorough, reliable, fair and professional. Our clients know they can count on us for appraisals that are all that and more.

Marine assets are unique and serve a wide variety of purposes. As such, we take the time to examine the characteristics, conditions and circumstances relative to all equipment or property we value. Using the information collected, we consider multiple standard approaches to valuation and ultimately apply the method or methods that deliver the most complete, most accurate values for a particular asset.

We effectively analyze market and industry trends, past and current, and understand the regulations and factors that affect the value of marine assets. Based on those factors, we develop a reasonable picture of future trends and thereby realistically forecast the future values of your assets. That helps you make more informed decisions when it comes to managing your marine portfolio.

Our lead appraiser, Keith Weber, is an Accredited Senior Appraiser with the American Society of Appraisers (ASA). No valuation leaves our doors without first receiving his stamp of approval. Having valued over $10 billion worth of equipment and with an extensive background in finance, he has the competence to deliver appraisals our clients can count on.
