Caribbean Marine Surveyors are specialists in surveying yachts and motorboats. We probably inspect more catamarans than any other Surveyors in the world. Caribbean Marine Surveyors started operating in 1999. We do not have any links with any boat yard, repairer or charter company. We are approved by the UK Maritime Coastguard Agency (MCA) to carry out inspections on Small Commercial Vessels (SCV) and maritime Labour Code (MLC). We are approved by the following UK Certifying Authorities for SCV and MLC inspections to Code 0:- MECAL; International Institute of Marine Surveying (IIMS); RYA (Royal Yachting Association); We work for the YDSA on an appointment basis. We are approved by the UK Government, Antigua and Barbuda government and the BVI government to carry out Tonnage Measurements up to 24 meters load line. We are approved by MECAL and the BVI Government to carry out stability testing. We are approved by the Barbados Maritime Authority to carry out inspections for yachts registered in Barbados.

Born in France, spending his childhood in England, and growing up in Canada, it is not an easy for Andrew to come up with an answer when you ask him where he is from. After completing university in Toronto, Canada, Andrew went back to the UK to pursue a career in the yachting industry. After completing his MCA 200 ton Master’s license, he found himself traveling through the Mediterranean and then over the Caribbean. Andrew was passing through the BVI in 2009 when he was asked to run a few charters for a local charter company and never left. After working with numerous charter companies, he found a private yacht with the right owner and spent five years running charters throughout the Caribbean and US East Coast. Eventually, Andrew felt that it was time to become a little more land-based and put down some roots. It was at this point he joined a Caribbean engine and power generation distributor as their Service Manager, however this just wasn’t quite close enough to his passion; boats. Finally, Andrew joined Caribbean Marine Surveyors in 2016.
I was born in Tortola British Virgin Islands in 1975, but migrated to the Island of St. Vincent & the Grenadines, where i obtained both my primary and secondary level education. There, i developed a liking for reading and a passion for poetry. In 2005, I published my book of poetry: “The Uncertainty of Time”, which received an impressive book review here in the British Virgin Islands. Apart from writing, my talent for Lawn Tennis has allowed me to travel to many parts of the Caribbean, North & South America, and Europe, as a Semi-Professional Player. In addition, in 2003 I went on to become the Director, and coach of the Under 14 Youth Development Tennis Programme, in the British Virgin Islands. I’m still actively involved in the tennis world, as I continue to participate in local and regional tennis tournaments. In 2011 I obtained a degree in Business Administration, at the H. Lavity Stoutt Community College.
