Mark Robinson carried out a survey for one of our vessels with regards the Marshall YET scheme.

We cannot recommend Mark highly enough for his guidance and fountain of knowledge with regards all regulations and Mark’s very attention to detail to all aspects of the survey to ensure that the vessel met all regulations to pass the survey.

We will definitely be looking to work with Mark again with regards any surveys and will not hesitate to recommend him to any of our clients.

We could not have got to the end result of this Marshall Islands YET survey without Mark’s assistance and professional guidance.

Niall Rhys Evans, Safehaven International

MRMC has been a pleasure to deal with and always proactive. We systematically reach out to MRMC for all RMI annual and pre-commercial surveys.

Mitch LaBrie, KK Superyachts

This is the 3rd year we sought MRMC ‘s services and once more he gave a great performance. I personally find his surveys very thorough and meticulous.

Mark is a very knowledgeable person from whom I always learn something new everytime he visits the vessel. We love to work with him as he pushes us to raise the standards and sail around with a fully compliant yacht.

Without a doubt we will contact him for the next survey.
