Since its inception in 2007, Marine Business Advisors has been contacted and engaged by numerous companies, large and small. Projects have ranged from long-term operational oversight of businesses to short term business analysis and guidance. In certain specific cases, partial ownership has resulted. MBA has been asked to provide insight on all aspects of marine businesses, including operating, marketing, selling, buying, and financing from those within and outside of the industry. MBA is alert to the industry happenings and is the perfect “go to” company for answers to your questions.

The following is a partial list of businesses that have benefited from the expertise and insight gained by contacting MBA.
