Cape Charles Marine Services Inc. (CCMS) is a business whose philosophy is to provide the highest quality custom maintenance and restoration work on fine yachts. We expect that when a customer places his/her yacht in our care, s/he is doing so because of our dedication to quality. We can only maintain that quality by doing the very work that brought the customer to CCMS in the first place.

CCMS allows owners to perform work on their vessels using their own tools, with the exceptions that 1) there is absolutely no sanding or grinding, and 2) CCMS staff will paint the bottom, although the owner may supply the paint. This is due to environmental concerns. Should an owner choose to ignore these requirements, the boat will be assessed for the appropriate amount of time it would have taken to paint and the owner will be billed that amount at our stated rates.

Occasionally, a customer will request a service within a time frame that we cannot meet or to perform work on a unique product where a specialist is required. In these cases we welcome the use of outside contractors and in fact we strive to develop a mutually beneficial working relationship. On the other hand, we discourage the use of outside entities that are in direct competition with our efforts to remain viable.

Any person, except an owner of the yacht on which he is working or the owner’s full time captain, shall provide a copy of insurance coverage prior to doing work at CCMS. Such coverage will include, at a minimum, liability in the amount of $1,000,000 and workers’ compensation in the amount of $500,000.

Our employees are very friendly and outgoing; please do not put them in an awkward situation by asking to use shop tools and equipment. We have had too many close calls with owners, captains and subcontractors and wish to avoid a serious injury. Under no circumstances will anyone other than CCMS employees use tools or equipment owned by CCMS.

Owners, contractors and crews who are doing approved work at CCMS shall:

  • Sign in every day and indicate the nature of activities.
  • Observe all safety precautions and policies instituted by CCMS. Contractors must attend a safety indoctrination session, which is presented by a CCMS safety officer.
  • Not impede the progress of work being performed by CCMS or interfere with the CCMS work schedule.
  • Not enter any restricted area including private offices, stores, and shops except when accompanied by CCMS staff.
  • Purchase from CCMS stores all non-specialty materials. A courtesy discount of 10% will be applied to all purchases.
  • Immediately report injury to persons or damage to property and equipment; alert a member of CCMS staff and file a written report of the incident.
  • Enter premises only during normally scheduled hours of operation at CCMS.


  • Subcontractor work will be billed to the customer through CCMS. A 15% surcharge will be applied on subcontractor work performed.
  • Day rates may apply.
  • Over two-week live-aboard on land or water is not permitted.
  • Anyone found not adhering to CCMS policy will be asked to leave the yard.
