Allen J. Dannewitz Professional Marine Services LLC SAMS Acredited Marine Surveyor



My marine and mechanical experience extends back to my childhood. My career started while working for Robert E Derector, an admired yacht builder. While working there, I had the pleasure of working with some of the finest craftsman in the world, on yachts, power and sail, from eighteen to eighty feet. I moved on to own and manage my marina on Eastern Long Island, Modern Yachts Inc. Having baught and sold many vessels of my own I have experienced most issues faced by boaters. Now living in South Florida I continue my passion sharing my experience and helping boaters every day.

Let me: Allen J Dannewitz help you buy the boat of your dreams, with a Marine Condition and Value Survey.  My field inspection includes, hull and deck inspection, engine testing, systens testing and a sea trial. A next day findings list will follow. My Survey Report includes, a detailed discription of the vessel, full inventory of equipment, location of thru hulls and bilge pumps, sea trial report, vessel valuation, hull identification, detailed list of findings and recommendations with digital photos. Most Survey reports run 18-25 pages long.

I moved out to Long Island in 1977 where I owned a full service upscale marina with my brother for over 27 years. Not ready to retire in 2004, I attended the Chapman's School in Stuart Florida for instruction in Marine Surveying and Damage Claims. I became a member with SAMS, (Society of Accredited Marine Surveyors) and ABYC, (American Boat and Yacht Council). I have been surveying Yachts and Small Craft both power and sail mostly on Long Island until 2013. I then moved to South East Florida where I continue my work as a marine surveyor. I also welcome damage and claims work for insurance companies and I continue to be an active member with SAMS. I attend many conferences each year and keep up with the latest tools and techniques the industry has to offer.  I can help you! Please call with your questions. Thank you. I look forward for your business. Allen J Dannewitz, SAMS AMS (631) 258-6177
