our story

Achievement Marine & Diesel Systems Services

We founded Achievement Marine with one thing in mind “creating solutions for our customers - not excuses”. After decades of service in the marine manpower and repair industry we kept encountering chronic industry-wide problems in quality,  on-time delivery and customer service. Shortcuts were being taken to expedite billing and persistent issues with retaining a highly skilled workforce were prevalent throughout the industry.  Our mission is to improve customer experience by providing transparent high value solutions that are tailored to our customers unique circumstances.   


We are truly thankful for the opportunity to serve you!
