“I have had the pleasure of working with David during his time as DPA/CSO with Moran Yacht Management. David has been an excellent DPA. His Knowledge in this area is second to none. I worked closely with David’s managed yachts and every time his yacht captains have praised his character and ability to get the job done. David is an excellent people manager and works well under pressure. I hope to work with David again in the future”.

Paul Bell

Captain / Project Manager

“David arrived on scene as Head of Compliance for MYM as our DPA / CSO. He immediately set to task in ensuring we were fully compliant in all aspects of management on board and ashore. His professionalism is second to none and he proved this by expediting the process for us in the later stages of our build. We obviously proved this by sailing from the shipyard in a fully compliant state for all societies i.e. Cayman Islands and Lloyds etc.
His day to day communication for MY. Quattroelle was always reliable and was always available.
I would have no hesitation in recommending him”.

“I had the pleasure of working directly with Dave recently with the registration of a new build 33M yacht, and his tremendous abilities never ceased to amaze me. During that time, we worked together closely, so I fully understand his capabilities. He was also very helpful with explaining the new MLC requirements and the inspection process. Dave is able to give great attention to every detail of yacht regulatory compliance and management. With his abilities, adaptability, and dedication, I am happy to recommend Dave without reservation”.
