In the early 1990s, David was a Brevard County licensed Residential Framing Contractor, during at which time he mastered the intensive structural changes to Florida’s Building Codes in the aftermath of Hurricane Andrew.
Later, he held a Project Management position for a large luxury home builder with offices in Melbourne and Vero Beach at which time he controlled approx. $2,000,000.00 worth of construction at any given time, and was also certified by the American Association of Home Inspectors.
Then in 2002 he decided to take this diverse history of construction experience, along with his lifelong passion for boating, fishing and the Indian River Lagoon, and develop a Marine Construction firm based upon the foundation of complete professionalism, superior quality and construction methods, and total customer satisfaction with every client on every project. He learned over the years that these are the key ingredients to long term prosperity in the construction industry. Having been raised in a home where responsibility, honesty and integrity were of the highest priority, it is a creed that comes naturally.
Land And Sea Marine, Inc. currently has an A+ rating with the Better Business Bureau of Central Florida, is a member in good standing of the Florida Marine Contractors Association, is a Certified Preferred Contractor for Azek™ Building Products, a Certified Elite Contractor for TimberTech™ Building Products, a Certified Trex Pro™ Gold Contractor and as always, we have countless professional references
available upon request.
At the inception of the company in 2002, David was part of a brief partnership in which the company was named Land And Sea Marine “Contractors”, Inc. That company continued on with the same name under different ownership as an Excavation Contractor specializing in dredging and excavation, while David Jacobs continued with his work as Land And Sea Marine, Inc. The similarity of the names can be confusing and although we highly recommend Land And Sea Marine “Contractors”, Inc. for your dredging and excavation needs, they are not Marine Contractors and are a separately owned and operated entity from Land And Sea Marine, Inc.
David Jacobs, the Founder and President of Land And Sea Marine, Inc. is a life long resident of the Melbourne area and has a history in the Brevard County Construction industry that spans 34 years. He is a State Certified General Contactor and also holds an M1 Marine Contractors license in Brevard, Indian River and Monroe Counties.
