About Captain Rob Cozen
Master Marine Surveyor

"In the first few minutes of looking over the shoulder of my surveyor, I knew that my decision was the correct one. It takes a man with a great love for his work to answer the dozens of questions a novice boatowner is yelling to him while he is on his back in a hot noisy bilge. Capt. Rob Cozen of Cherry Hill, N.J., could not have been more patient or informative. With all the systems he had to examine, Rob took the time to explain every seacock and fitting I asked him about. No question was too basic to answer." - Yachting Magazine 12/93



I would like to take this opportunity to introduce my company to you. I provide professional Marine Surveying for New Jersey, New York, Pennsylvania, Delaware and Maryland; also, with offices serving the New England States. I also have clients throughout the United States and the Caribbean. I have twenty-five year maritime experience with commercial and pleasure vessels and survey fiberglass, wood, steel, and aluminum yachts. Modern-day vessels are being made with high-tech materials and electronics. The old "knuckle-tapping" technique of inspecting hulls can no longer give either the buyer/seller, insurance carrier, or bank a realistic and dependable indication of condition, risk and value. I am bringing the field of Marine Surveying into the 1990's by conducting hull ultrasounding, corrosion, osmosis and moisture analysis, spectrometric engine fluid analysis and marine consultation. I survey in and out of water, at dockside or drydock and conduct underway seatrial evaluations. Filming and narration of a survey is available upon request and in-depth, detailed reports are completed and in-hand within 36 hours, All information is retained on computer disk for future access or upgrade, and FAXed reports can be available the same day. I am certified by the U.S. Coast Guard to survey commercial fishing vessels and am the New Jersey surveyor for ConSurve/MTI Intermodal International Container Ship/Cargo Inspection Services. I hold a U.S. Coast Guard Captain's License, Master Near Coastal, Aux. Sail and am qualified to deliver most size pleasure craft. I am on the Boat/U.S. Speaker's Bureau, have served as an expert witness and am available to travel.

If I can be of service, please contact my office. Thank you for entering my name in your files.

Respectfully yours,
