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…
Dear Tom,I wanted to thank you for the excellent work Frank and Matt did in installing the new electric winch kit. They look nice, work perfectly, and make such a difference. I also wanted you to know how much I appreciated you and your team going above and beyond to trouble shoot and fix my engine problems so I could leave on my ten week trip to Maine this summer. Diversified Marine is the best!
“Oyster Stew” is a 1978 Wasque 32. She has an excellent pedigree, but needed some work. The hull, originally painted flag blue in 2000 was in need of freshening. The decks needed to be repainted, and the doghouse was oxidizing. Diversified Marine was able to get me into the schedule and started working on her in December 2010. What started out as basic cosmetics quickly turned into a major project when rot was found in the doghouse.
Tom kept me abreast of the progress through pictures and went…
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…
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…
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…

Client feedback: “The boat looks fantastic, everything was clean and one would never know the heavy dirty mess that was involved with this project. I turned over the engine, threw the dock lines off and had a couple hours on the bay, all systems go. I want to express my appreci…
The last year has been packed with preparations for the Annapolis to Bermuda Ocean Race. Of course we left the Electronics until the last minute, and I can’t tell you how grateful we are for the hard work you guys did in the last month. You installed our entire RayMarine electronics suite, and the speed and precision with which your team finished the work was remarkable. Our expectations were hugely exceeded!!
Thank you for your customer service, and you will always be our first choic…
I posted this to the SOS Skipper’s forum …… just sharing good experience that I hope others do when they find it. Thanks again. Jim
Here’s some good news: I need to share my experience with this professional run outfit. I’ve had occasion to have them work on my diesel (25hp Universal) several times over the past couple years. Most recently, this past week, I had an issue with a heat exchanger bracket and a stuck pencil zinc. Although they had their techs fully booked for the next two weeks,…
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.
