Popeye Marine Group is comprised of dedicated individuals who love the marine industry, have a strong passion for boats, and are lead by Marine Surveyor and owner, Dave Leonetti.


Dave is a graduate of the Chapman School of Seamanship, an ABYC Standards Certified Marine Technician, member of SAMS, a National Safe Boating Council certified instructor, and experienced maritime captain. Dave has spent many years transporting small to large boats and yachts across the Great Lakes and eastern seaboard along with performing marine surveys for private individuals, financial institutions, and the US Government.

When it comes to getting a marine survey, you get someone who not only goes through the vessel for you, but also explains what he is looking for and why, educating you along the way. Popeye Marine Group performs marine surveys on a wide variety of vessels including power and sail from 16' to 90'.


We have been working in the marine industry since 2008 and we are dedicated to providing the most thorough and professional inspection of your vessel.

We are constantly continuing our education in the industry.

Popeye Marine Group marine survey results are performed to ABYC Standards and Recommended Practices, NFPA-302, and USCG 33 and 46 CFRs.

All reports are USPAP (Uniform Standards of Professional Appraisal Practice) compliant to current standards.

Our surveys are accepted at all major financial institutions and insurance companies. We will at your request, forward the finished report to any financial or insurance institution on your behalf.


We are here to provide the best possible service to you, our valued customers.
