From Our Website

We are a full-service marine surveying and consulting company founded in 1968 by Don Hale, USMMA, Class of 1948. Sabine has grown over the years through expansion and acquisition. At present we have eight (8) office locations: Corpus Christi, Houston, Port Arthur, Lake Charles, New Orleans, Mobile, Cape Canaveral, and Norfolk. We maintain an aggressive recruiting program balanced between the addition of experienced surveyors, as well as recent maritime university graduates. Sabine is committed to the expansion of the profession and has an industry-leading developmental program for our staff.

Our staff of experienced Marine Industry Auditors are available to support your compliance, control, and good practice efforts.

The Coast Guard allows Towing Vessel Owners several options to come into compliance with Subchapter M regulations. You may choose to use an existing RCP plan, develop a new TSMS Plan, use the Coast Guard option, or a combination of these options. Our staff can assist you in bringing all of your vessels into compliance with Subchapter M and ready to receive a Certificate of Inspection (COI) from the Coast Guard. Sabine Surveyors is authorized by the Coast Guard to audit and approve your TSMS plan, issue TSMS Certificates, conduct TSMS Management Audits, and TSMS Audits on your vessels.

Our surveyors have the expertise to investigate the full range of potential incidents, whether it be cargo loss or damage, damage to fixed and floating objects, crew injury, pollution, or casualties.

Your vessel is a complex group of expensive components. In order to protect that investment, and to provide support when problems arise, Sabine's staff of marine professionals offers preventative through remedial services.
