Our Story


Rick Furtado, Ocean Reef Marine Consulting CEO, was born into five generations of mariners. He spent his childhood on the docks of New Bedford, Marion, and Fairhaven Massachusetts. The Commercial Fishing Industry was where he got his education. Where the principles of right and wrong were settled on the spot without hesitation. He learned that doing the next "right thing" was more work but provided safety in a storm.
