It is with a very great deal of pleasure that I commend you, Matt and your crew for the superb, eye-catching paint job you accomplished on my 34 year old Ranger 22 “FIREWORKS”. You didn’t just restore her to her glory days, you have eclipsed, by a huge margin, the best she has ever looked, even brand new. It was better bringing her home this time than the very first time I brought her home.
In addition, the way you conduct business completely complements your excellent results. Your c…
Not being from the Annapolis area, when I found ALTAIR, (renamed MIRACLE), bidding on her from afar was daunting. I looked on several websites, and found Tom Kicklighter and Diversified Marine. Tom acted as my proxy, and without any motivation other than just doing the right thing, Tom took moisture meter readings and sent me 30+ pictures of the boat, and then called me to debrief me on what he found. He helped me clearly see the difference between the marketing pictures and what she really loo…
I‘m writing this letter to express my sincere thanks and appreciation to Matt Jones and Diversified Marine Services Inc., in Annapolis, Maryland for the attention they gave us, their response time, and the professionalism shown with respect to some recent boat repairs.
Our Formica galley countertop had begun to delaminate and despite my attempts, refused to be re-adhered. Some of the aft closet frames had also begun to warp and crack, and we noticed some fiberglass cracks developing in the af…
Dear Tom and Crew,
Thanks for your terrific work on “Cato” both last winter and over the years we have owned her. Matt’s terrific Lexan main hatch panels came out looking so nice the owner of the Hinckley across the dock demanded to know where we got them so he could have you make some for him (his came out pretty nice too).
There were some “ships carpentry” items that were past my skill level. Head door hinges etc. They made it onto last winter’s “list” and you guys did a superb job …
Last fall my 1997 Gemini 105M was struck by lightning. Almost everything electrical was damaged, and the electronics were fried. Frank Hoot came on board, assessed the damage, developed a plan and executed it perfectly.
Not only was he able to identify the lightning problems, he identified and correct electrical issues carried over from the manufacturer. He brought the boat up to current ABYC standards. This was all done as part of the plan. He also helped me deal with an extremely difficult ve…
Dear Tom, I just wanted to send along a testimonial to complement the recent restoration job your group did on my 50″ Cranchi Mediteranee express cruiser.
Matt and the other members of your team did an outstanding job in planning and executing the project which included repairing. prepping and painting the entire hull with Awlgrip. This included some redesign of the paint scheme for the boat and the final results were just beautiful. Our 9-year old boat looks better than it did the day it was d…
My 1996 J/105 had a badly oxidized gel coat, faded decks and several small cracks in the fiberglass decking. I hired Diversified Marine to perform this major restoration for several reasons:
- Quality workmanship: Diversified Marine took the time to lay out his process to restore the boat in detail. It became evident to me that DMS would not take any shortcuts that would lead to a sub-standard job. Throughout the restoration, Tom immediately addressed anything he felt could compromise the end pr…
You really are one of the only service folks down there that seems to reply and respond as questions get asked. It truly is a rare customer service level you keep. It’s amazing how poor others are at it.
Just returned from the Marina to look at the follow up job on my boat. Wow! Job well done! Another satisfied customer. I must say it has been awhile since I have dealt with a company of your caliber. You have been awesome to deal with since day one! Your reviews definitely spoke the truth!

It has been more than a year since you did your fabulous work on Tranquility, my 46 ft. sailboat, and restored her to “new” condition. I was quite impressed that a diver who works on Traquility asked me when I got my new boat. As you know, Tranquility is 17 years old.
The internal work was equally spectacular. I love the Corian countertop and the other woodwork that was done internally.
Just wanted to let you know how much I continue to appreciate the outstanding work that you did.…
