Tom Kicklighter and his team at Diversified Marine did a wonderful job helping us refurbish our 1986 Cambria 44/46. On the exterior, we had the hull painted, the teak decks repaired, and the exterior cabin house detailed. On the interior, we had the cabins painted, the head liner detailed, new fans installed, and port holes resealed. We also had an electric winch installed.We hired Tom and his team because of their reputation for quality work and excellent customer service. Diversified Marine…
Thanks for working with me Tom! You’re a good man and wish you the best in the new year! I also enjoyed talking with you yesterday. I wish I had the passion and drive you do. You created a great company with integrity and high quality standards. I would like to shake hands some day! Best wishes!!

I must say that DMS has been at the top of its game this launch season. Very satisfied customer.
Thanks so much for doing everything you can to get me on the water. You’ve been fair, reasonable and profoundly helpful. I really appreciate all you’ve done.
This is my 40th season on this boat. We’ve tried to maintain and update it, but even the updates are getting on in years. Nice to know you guys have my back.

Last year, my wife and I bought our 1982 Swan 391 on the Great Lakes and sailed her to the east coast. Getting the boat into Chesapeake Bay was a first step in pursuing the dream of some extended cruising. As a budget-conscious boat owner, I do the work that I can myself, but we needed some professional help and I can’t speak highly enough of my experience with Tom, Matt and the Diversified team.
The initial work I contracted was simply to remove the old (fresh water) bottom paint and barrier s…
One seldom encounters a business dedicated to superb quality of work, coupled with on-time performance at a fair price. Diversified Marine Service is such a company.
With a three week trip out of town, FROLIC was hauled in August for some minor gel coat repair and an awlgrip paint job. The deep luster of the flag blue paint is phenomenal.
We could not be more pleased.
I have Selene 48′ trawler. The Taiwanese carpenters are hard to match. But, I think Matt may just have given them some competition. He took a sample of our drawer front and matched it to perfection. That wasn’t an easy task with all the fine detail. He was even able to match the Ebony inlay on the cabinet top. His measurements were perfect and the cabinet fits beautifully. You know how…boats have more angles than geometry.
We had a time deadline of heading South. Matt made that deadline, workin…
I must tell you that the service you provided me was exemplary. I have owned a lot of boats and dealt with many yards and contractors; and the experience I had with you was top shelf. I greatly appreciate it… and when I am back on the water will always keep you in mind.
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, 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…
While returning from New England in July, 2014 on our Sabre 42 Express powerboat, “SHIBUMI”, we experienced significant fiberglass and gelcoat damage while attempting to enter a marina on the Mannesquan River in NJ during a heavy current in the midst of a violent thunderstorm.
Upon returning to Annapolis, we interviewed several marine contractors, including Tom Kicklighter of Diversified Marine Services , requesting bids to repair the boat. Within a couple of days, Tom had examined the boat and…
