Victor was exceptionally helpful with my purchase of a sailboat at a distance. I could not come out and see the boat. He gave a very thorough inspection report. He also helped manage arrangements to do with purchasing, repairs to brakes and bearings on a trailer, as well as storage and shipping.  He took care of many small details and was knowledgable on all aspects.  He was reliable and professional throughout.  I felt like the process was in good hands at all times and this gave me peace of mind in what could have otherwise been stressful situations.  I really could not have done this without his help. I recommend him most highly.

I have just completed my second survey with Victor, for a float home.

The first, last summer, was for my 36’ cabin cruiser. After Victor completed that survey, he told me that he would have a copy ready to email within 2 days. That night, he would up in emergency and was scheduled for surgery the following day. He assured me that he would still have the survey completed within the day following. He was true to his word, and my survey was there.

For the float home, Victor even talked to the insurance broker about the repairs required, and negotiated on my behalf for providing insurance.

I can’t say enough about Victor’s knowledge, punctuality and professionalism, as well as the fact that he’s just so accommodating & personable. He’s simply a delight to deal with.

I highly recommend Victor to anyone who wants the job done right, on time, and in great depth.

Victor’s years of experience, knowledge and wisdom gave our family the comfort to walking away from a bad deal and then end up closing on the perfect boat for us. He performed a thorough and professional survey and we’ll certainly be calling him up for any future work.

I purchased a 41′ 1974 Canoe Cove Tri-cabin June of 2019. I had Victor manage a $50,000 refit and upgrade to my complete satisfaction. Victor has amazing knowledge of all things Marine. Too mechanical servicing companies could not fix an overheating problem on both engines, Victor identified the problem immediately and using Precision Yacht services to complete the repairs with minimal cost. Victor gave me a comprehensive binder explaining all the systems aboard which has been extremely valuable. I have been on the water since I was 15 years old but was not comfortable with a 41′ boat. Over a ten hour period with Victor instructing me in docking and close quarter handling. I am now very comfortable getting in and out of any dock.

Thanks Victor.

Victor is an amazing source of knowledge and he is extremely helpful with making sure the boat is the right fit for you, and that the boat is property fitted with the required safety equipment. As well as a surveyor, he is a mechanic, instructor and will help you pilot your boat till you are confident yourself. He works with many other local boat services to ensure you get your boat all the proper care and maintenance to protect your investment. As well, he is a kind and patient man and his lovely wife is also very kind and very helpful too. Thank you Victor, for making our new boat life so much less stressful in the transition. Boating is a huge undertaking and expense, 2nd to buying a home, and having a professional guide you through the process is highly recommended. We are very happy

Victor did a survey on our boat and I am so pleased with the survey he gave us. It really helped us with the sell of the boat. He was professional and courteous throughout the process.

I cannot say enough good things about victor of pacific coast marine surveyors. His professionalism, knowledge and experience easily make him the best marine expert I have had assist me with my boat purchase/sale and mechanical advice. Not only did he treat my boat like it was own, his prices are extremely fair. I HIGHLY recommend Victor to anyone seeking a marine surveyor!

Very satisfied with services I received. Not only was the surveyor able to work with my schedule. I was able to work with him to control some of the administrative cost. I needed a survey for “insurance purposes” and most of the other surveyors I spoke with, where in my mind, out to lunch. They wanted to charge me the same cost for an out of the water pre-purchase survey. Having a copy of a previous certified survey available, help expedite the process, in reconfirming the makes, models and serial numbers, of some or all the components onboard.

I have already passed on his name to three of my friends, who also taken a significant and knowledgeable interest in maintaining their investment. Who as in my situation, may only interested in paying for the information pertaining to the vessel, either required and or requested by the insurance company for renewal.

I required a Marine Survey for my 23′ sport boat and Called Victor at Pacific Coastal Marine Surveyors. Victor was prompt to the minute did an excellent job and caught a few things that were missed when the boat was last serviced. I was impressed by Victor’s extensive knowledge of all things Marine.

Thanks Victor.

I was very impressed with the knowledge and information that Victor has. I had a vibration in my drive and Victor knew right away where to look and found the rear mounts on my inboard were curling and setting the alignment off. He corrected it! Problem solved. He also picked up on other issues that I missed on the install. Thank you for all your help and infinite wisdom in the marine industry
