About Us

Pinnacle Marine Group - Captain Gregory P. Michael is the principal surveyor of the firm. Gregory has been around boats and yachts for most of his life. As a young adolescent, he was involved in restoration, fiberglass work, engine maintenance and rebuilding, outdrive rebuilding, and marina maintenance. His love and passion for boats forced him to study the field of Marine Surveying so that he could help others through their passionate purchases of small boats and yachts.

After an extensive internship and annual classroom hours of study, Captain Gregory P. Michael found it prudent to open the Pinnacle Marine Group. More than two decades later and countless boats surveyed, he has the experience and dedication to provide you with the most honest, accurate, and detailed evaluation of your vessel.
