Meet The Mermaid!


Meet The Mermaid!

My name is Camilla Johnsrud, born on an island, I was driving my first dingy before my first car!  I LOVE BOATS! I have taken that love for  boats and made it my career for the last thirty years here on the Space Coast. The experience and knowledge that I have gained in that time has prepared me to provide expert service for a wide variety of boaters needs.

The reputation that I have earned in that time is one that can be trusted. Any of my customers will tell you that if you want it fixed RIGHT the FIRST time, take it to Camilla! Even after all these years I still love working on the boats myself and maintain a hands on role in the crew to make sure that everything is smooth sailing from start to finish! The Mermaid Crew works under my careful eye, utilizing my experience and expertise as we work together in ensuring that you are satisfied with a final finish that you can be proud of!

At Mermaid Marine Service we understand the way you feel about your boat. We love boats too!  So, as a personal promise to you, we will do whatever it takes to get your boat back in the water so that you, your family, and friends can get right back on the water!

A special promise to our live aboard boat owners is that when you bring your boat in for service, we will work ‘straight through’ to finish up and get you back into your home. Only Mother Nature can stop The Mermaid Crew! Weather permitting, we will work long hours, including nights and weekends to get you back in the water where you belong!

We are located in Merritt Island, Florida. Come visit us, or invite us to visit you in Titusville, Port St. John, Cocoa, Rockledge, Viera, Melbourne, Palm Bay, Cape Canaveral, Cocoa Beach, Satellite Beach, Indian Harbor Beach, Indialantic  and surrounding Brevard County mainland and beachside areas with our MOBILE SERVICE!

Our Services

  • Bottom Painting

    Maintaining  your antifouling paint will greatly reduce the Marine Growths from attaching to your hull. A clean hull is fast, safe, and fuel efficient! The Mermaid Crew takes no shortcuts, and guarantees proper preparation, inspection and repair of any defects prior to painting, so you can feel confident that the job was done thoroughly from start to finish!

  • Fiberglass/Gelcoat Repairs

    When chips and gouges occur in the gelcoat, they may seem easy to overlook. However, when fiberglass is exposed to moisture and the elements, it can lead to compounded issues later if neglected.  Mermaid Marine not only specializes in expert gel coat tint matching, but also in providing structural repairs to fiberglass that will undoubtedly be the strongest part of the boat when it is finished!

  • Boat Detailing

    Despite your best efforts, it can be a real challenge to find the time necessary to detail your own boat. Not to worry, Mermaid Marine Service has got you covered both inside and out! From washing and waxing to wet sanding and compounding, even polishing the metals and protecting the vinyls! Just say the word and we will continue your detail on into the cabins and interiors of your vessel! We love to detail boats letting you enjoy having more time on the water!

Trust Mermaid Camilla and her crew to help you chart your course by providing you with written estimates as well as extensive documentation supporting your claim.
