Kingspoke Marine Surveying was founded in 2017. Zach Simonson-Bond, NAMS-Associate Marine Surveyor, has over a decade in the maritime industry and brings his experience, passion, and attention to detail to your vessel’s survey. Zach apprenticed under David Jackson, NAMS-CMS.
Located on Whidbey Island, Kingspoke Marine Surveying is central to many of Washington’s major boating hubs including: Everett, Seattle, Port Townsend, Anacortes, and Bellingham.
Zach grew up on Whidbey and still lives there with his wife and two cats, Tiller and Rudder. They have a new golden retriever named Bosun. Zach is passionate about wooden boats, and cut his teeth aboard the schooners Adventuress, Mary Day, and Lewis R. French. He and his wife continue to sail aboard their 23′ sloop Stardust.
