Our Team at Marine Specialties Inc.
Recently Celebrated Our 30th Anniversary!

It has always been the primary goal of Marine Specialties Inc. – and specifically, owners Tom and Michelle Child – to seek out and provide the very best products the marine industry has to offer.

From the top floating aluminum docks on the market & the best boat lifts to be found, to shoreline protection like granite or river rock rip rap, and even custom steps and stairs that are not only functional but look good too, we strive for 100% customer satisfaction.

At MSI, we are always happy to spend any amount of time necessary to educate our customers and we love showing off the boat docks we have built, the boat lifts that we have installed, or the rip rap and steps we have completed for previous customers.

As the saying goes – it is a lot easier selling products you believe in. At MSI, our relationship with you starts on your first visit and extends long after you’ve purchased from us. We are committed to continuing to earn your business – and confidence – through superior deliverables, attentiveness, and VIP-level customer service.


Marine construction – floating lake docks in Georgia and South Carolina; shoreline protection, steps, and stairs; commercial and community dock construction – is all we’ve done for 30 years.

Licensed & Insured

All our workers are fully licensed, bonded & insured. Rest easy knowing you’ll get experienced & professional teams, backed by one of the most respected names in the business.


We love what we do and we take pride in our work – no matter how large or small the project. Our goal is always that each job is finished on time and on budget. Your satisfaction is our topmost concern and paramount.


We aim to schedule your marine construction work – from design to delivery and then installation – whenever it’s convenient for you. Our goal is to be available when you are instead of forcing it to be the other way around… You’re the customer. You’re special. And we show that in all we do.

Free Consultation

We offer complimentary design consultations for each and every marine construction project. Whether it’s helping you imagine your perfect floating dock design – or structuring the perfect shoreline protection – we’ll brainstorm with you & then deliver a FIRM quote you can count on…
