CariMar, Caribbean Marine and P&I Services, has been created from the growth and evolution of Mariserve Jamaica Ltd. The name was changed to reflect the principal geographic region in which we operate, and to identify the principal type of services offered.

The area in which our services are offered has grown substantially to now cover the whole Caribbean Region, but the quality and type of services remains at the highest level, serviced by highly qualified marine professionals in various Caribbean locations, with central communications being directed through the headquarters in Fort Lauderdale, Florida or the Kingston Jamaica office.

Through the establishment of strategic agreements and contracts with other marine service companies and surveyors, the company now provides services throughout the Caribbean, from several strategic locations, and has also increased the type of services offered.

The company is listed as correspondent and surveyors for several P&I clubs, some of whom are members of The International Group of P&I Clubs, acting directly on instruction from the clubs on behalf of either the club or the entered member. Company services as surveyors and investigators have been engaged in matters such as oil spills, vessel groundings, cargo disputes, cargo damages, terminal damage from collision, collisions at sea, vessel condition surveys, and many others.

The company undertakes and provides services in many types of marine surveys, investigations, and consultative work, on behalf of P&I Clubs, vessel owners, operators, charterers, management companies, H&M underwriters, ship agents, importers and exporters, financial institutions, and any entity having an interest in Marine Transportation.

In locations where a P&I Club do not have a direct correspondent, The Company provides the same quality and level of service with one of the network surveyors, with all communication being centralized, in order to assure the client of rapid response. The USA or Jamaica office staff are available for 24 hour communication, and are able to contact the appropriate network surveyor at any time once instruction has been received.

Having established the headquarters in the United States, company services are now available through direct contact either with the Florida or Jamaica office. Direct control and coordination of the regional network surveyors is maintained from Florida, with Jamaica as an alternate, but the Kingston office concentrates on the Jamaican activities.

The principal services undertaken, not in any order of precedence, are as follows:
1. P&I correspondency, and surveys and investigations;
