The boat buying process for me has been a pain. Not everything has gone smoothly except for having my boat documented and the other paper work filed through Maria. She is reliable, has always been there to answer my questions, and is very patient. Maria has been great.

I was having trouble getting an updated documentation certificate and was leaving for the Bahamas in two weeks. The Coast Guard told me it could take three months. I went to Ocean Yacht Documentation and Maria got my papers within a week! Thank you very much.
