JM Marine Survey



As a first-time buyer, I am glad I heeded a friend’s advice and had a marine survey. JMMS provided a professional, timely and in-depth inspection.  Their comprehensive report gave me a heads-up on future maintenance and areas of concern. These guys are the real deal: an MRI for boats! I will seek their services again for my next boat purchase, and remain grateful for their integrity and high competency.

Congratulations: you've found JMMS! We can't recommend their service highly enough. Their survey manner was open, thorough and educational. It's not common to buy a vessel with complete knowledge of its pros and cons, but by employing JMMS for a survey it is possible. Their service has extended well beyond the survey, providing invaluable guidance prior to an offer, through the survey and beyond. Their knowledge and contacts in SE Asia have been gold.

Thank you for undertaking the recent survey in Sydney. I must admit that beforehand I was skeptical, having heard disappointing stories of marine surveyors.  However, from our first contact through to completion of the report and your follow-up afterwards, dealing with you was a truly positive experience.  You were willing to discuss my requirements and answer my questions; and at all times you involved me in the survey, explaining the processes involved and identifying items that I needed to know. Your professionalism should be the benchmark for all surveyors.

Jamie, thanks so much for your pre-purchase survey.  I think the seller and I will come to a good agreement.  He was very complimentary about the level of detail and time you put into the survey.  I'm so pleased that the outcome is positive - if you need references for any future work, don't hesitate to give them my details as you have been an absolute pleasure to deal with.
Trish B., Sydney

Many thanks – the pre-purchase survey you carried out was comprehensive and amazingly thorough. As a retired engineer with 52 years experience of compiling technical reports, I found your survey report and supporting photos exceptionally well-presented.  Your knowledge and experience clearly shows.

I was rather nervous about purchasing a boat – especially one intended for long ocean passages. Jamie Morrison was organised, rigorous in his inspection of the boat and dedicated to looking after our interests during the purchase.  Taking our voyage plans into consideration, his explanations of possible improvements for seaworthiness turned out to be invaluable.  The survey report showed a degree of professionalism consistent with Jamie’s inspection methods.  He has helped us toward our round the world adventure, and we now have great confidence that we have made the correct decision.

Jamie Morrison was my marine surveyor and delivery skipper for 25 years. During that time I purchased many boats including racing catamarans, Adams 10’s, a Holland 44, a Northshore 38 and a Northshore 370.  His vast knowledge of boats plus his diligence and integrity have always given me complete confidence, and his advice has proved invaluable.  Jamie supervised the repair and maintenance of many of my boats, and I couldn’t recommend him highly enough.

Jamie, I'm very glad you were available to do the survey for us. You were thorough, clearly very knowledgeable, and I appreciate the way you were willing and able to explain things to me along the way. The boatowner dropped the price to allow for the repairs… so a great outcome for us from your survey. I have no hesitation in recommending you to others.
Matt Lumsdaine, Sydney

It’s a great pleasure to recommend the skills, experience, knowledge and integrity of Jamie Morrison who carried out repairs on my Cheoy Lee yacht. I’ve owned my boat for 25 years and dealt with experts in every department of boatbuilding and repair in the USA. I have never been more satisfied than with the work carried out by Mr Morrison. Working closely with him, I had ample opportunity to observe him firsthand. The breadth of his knowledge was evident from the start.  He is observant and analytical, and the accuracy of his analysis constantly astounded me. I have absolute confidence in trusting the most difficult problems to his judgement and recommend him without reservation.

Jamie Morrison worked for me at Searles Boatyard in Port Adelaide.  Searles is one of Australia’s oldest boatbuilding businesses.  During my 47 years in the trade I have surveyed hundreds of private and commercial craft and employed dozens of tradesmen. It was a genuine pleasure to work with Jamie and I have no hesitation in recommending his skills as a marine surveyor and shipwright.

Jamie Morrison and Niki Perryman delivered my Bavaria from Sri Lanka to Cairns.  They performed this delivery without incident in adverse conditions, handling repairs and maintenance capably.  They are level-headed and conservative sailors with a very wide range of delivery experience.  I can vouch for their complete honesty and ethical standards, and would recommend their services without any hesitation.
Dr J W de Launey, Sydney

Jamie and Niki delivered my Prout Snowgoose from Spain to the UK. They successfully weathered a severe gale in the Bay of Biscay, and proved themselves very professional in not only delivering the boat, but repairing many mechanical problems along the way.  The boat arrived at its destination in perfect condition with all systems working – remarkable under the circumstances. My boat could not have been delivered by a better crew, and I thoroughly recommend these two for any delivery anywhere.
