Headquartered in Panama City, Florida, Captain Patrick Yates Adams provides marine surveying services for commercial and recreational vessels on and around the Gulf Coast.


Whether you’re looking for a condition and value survey before purchase or an updated survey for insurance purposes you've come to the right place. I bring experience and professionalism to every job and customize my service to fit your individual needs, concerns, and schedule. You can be confident in a thorough inspection with a timely written, detailed report. 

A vessel survey is a significant investment but also an invaluable tool when seeking financing, marine insurance, and an understanding of the condition and value of a vessel prior to purchasing. In addition to detailing the current condition of a vessel and its systems, a survey can also warn of possible future issues or concerns affecting value and safety.

The world of recreational boating is ever growing and evolving. The opportunities for recreational boaters grow with continuous introductions of new technologies and designs, creating the need for informed advice. I have been professionally active in marine service for over a decade; I am currently the foreman in a local boatyard and began surveying in 2012. I bring that experience to every job.
