Downeast Maritime, Inc. (DMI) (Vineyard Maritime Ltd.) is a private, well-established, and innovative training school offering Coast-Guard approved courses.

We specialize in Merchant Marine Officer Licenses and Endorsement courses for all professional mariners.

All of our courses are geared toward certification for competency. Our passing rate with the USCG Regional Exam Centers and at our facility, is very high. However, it will require your dedication.

These programs will necessitate your time and commitment. Because of the challenging nature of our courses, we maintain a limit on the number of students enrolled per module. If you are committed to success, we will commit to working with you until the completion of your license certificate requirements.
Downeast Maritime Inc. (DMI) is a very practical alternative to academy training. We offer comprehensive training with sensible time frames and fees. We are in the business of training mariners to the highest possible standards. In accordance with this primary goal, we are prepared to accommodate the student who chooses to repeat the entire licensing course, or any given segment thereof, at no additional cost within one year.
