The JMS Naval Architects

Our Team

Experience. Built In.

We believe our unique “sea-going” attitude, that routinely places our employees “in the field” and “on the sea”, produces stimulated minds, real world experience, and very practical solutions. Our customers benefit from this and especially by having access to our wide range of expertise and experience level. We know this because our customers tell us so.
