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.…
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 …
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.
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…
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…
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.

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…
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…
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!

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.
