After in excess of 20 years in the Marine Industry as a Boatbuilder and Shipwright and part time Yacht Broker, Holmes Marine Pty Ltd Principal surveyor David Holmes thought that it was time to move from the Boatbuilding and Boat repair side of the Boating Industry and apply the knowledge gained over the 20 odd years in the industry which included all facets of boatbuilding and repair in to the Marine Surveying side of the industry.
In 2005 David Holmes commenced full time Marine Surveying with services that included.
* Pre-purchase Survey Inspections.
* Insurance Risk Evaluation Inspections.
* Bank Valuations.
* General Marine Consultancy.
* Expert Report Writing and Testimony.
Given David’s long standing in the Boating Industry, having completed numerous large insurance damage repairs for Australia’s largest Marine Insurers. David was approached by one of Australia’s best known insurance companies to use his invaluable knowledge to assist them with the assessing of their Marine Insurance claims in 2007.
Since the first Insurance claim handled by Holmes Marine in 2007, Holmes Marine has grown to have a full time surveying team of seven and administration staff, and now carries out the assessment of insurance claims for many of Australia’s Marine Insurers and Underwriters.
