Marine Appraisal

Bringing together the largest concentration of ASA Marine Appraisers in the Industry

With over 50 years of experience, DLS Marine leads the marine vessel and equipment appraisal industry with the largest concentration of NAMS-CMS surveyors and American Society of Appraisers (ASA) Senior Commercial Marine Appraisers, including six ASA-accredited appraisers who focus entirely on the maritime segment.  

What We Do

We provide valuation analysis of vessels and equipment that follow the rigorous guidelines of both the American Society of Appraisers (ASA), National Association of Marine Surveyors (NAMS) and the Uniform Standards of Professional Appraisal Practice (USPAP). 

Partnering with vessel operators, financial institutions, private equity firms and underwriters, we take a holistic look at vessel sales and offerings to develop an opinion of the market value of the vessel if it were to sell in market today – considering cost approach, sales comparison approach and the income approach.  

We appraise all types of commercial vessels, yachts, ships, and marine related equipment and supplies, including heavy construction equipment, cranes, and rolling stock. We also maintain an extensive computer database of over 12,000 vessels of all types valued by our office and have digital access to domestic and international vessel databases.
