Who we are

American Marine Contractors first opened its doors in 1980. The company was built out of the need for a full-time person to service the growing yachting community in the Northwest. Beginning with just a sole proprietor who also did all the the service work, American Marine Contractors has become a Marine Air service/dealer center, eventually taking on Cruisair products as well. The company eventually grew out of its one man operation when Cliff Valentine joined the company in 2000 as a service technician. With over 10 years worth of experience in the marine industry, Cliff eventually acquired American Marine Contractors from its original owner making it AMC-Cliffv’s Marine Service.

AMC still offers the same high quality service that its customers have relied
on for over 20 years. Since we first opened our doors, we have added new product lines such as Espar (Eberspächer) and King heaters, Grunert, the Dometic line of portable freezer/refrigerators(including portable wine coolers) and Origo products for your cooking needs on the go! We’ve gone from a one man operation to a three person team. Robin, our Office Manager, can assist you with parts, work orders or service calls.

We’re committed to becoming the Northwest’s one stop shop for all of your marine air conditioning, heating or refrigeration needs. Whether it’s replacement parts, new stock or service that you need, AMC-Cliffv’s can get the job done. AMC-Cliffv’s is always looking for qualified dealers to help with your service needs. If you know of a good A/C person out there, we’d like to meet them.
