Connecting Boat Owners to Boat Service Providers

About Us

Who We are

My husband and I moved to Annapolis, MD 6 years ago and purchased our first boat. We were so excited, but admit, we did not know the first thing about boat maintenance! Since then being out on the water has become our favorite past time and we have met so many other people with the same passion for being on the water.  

As part of our learning experience, we saw a need... a need for boat owners, like us, who do not know where to start looking when we needed help with our boat.  And we certainly did not have the time to weed through the many contractors available for boat maintenance needs...some good... some not so good.  This is where FirstMate Services comes to the rescue...
