About Damian Pugh, Managing Director

I was fortunate enough to start boating at an early age and, like many other boaters, it became a life-long passion and career. Starting in the timber boat building industry of Millkraft Thompson Boatyard, I completed my apprenticeship in boat building and later moved into Marine Insurance.   I started with Club Marine more than 25 years ago and worked in various roles progressing through to management. For the past 12 years, I was the National Underwriting Manager- Hull for Nautilus Marine Insurance.

An opportunity arose recently to start my own business as an Insurance Broker so Helm Insurance Services was recently launched. Helm now allows me to focus on servicing the needs of boat owners for boat and other related insurance products.

Over time, insurance requirements from many Insurers have tightened up, not there’s anything wrong with that, you just need to know how to navigate through the process. This is where I believe I can provide a point of difference, I know the Underwriting process for Boat Insurance, regardless of the Insurer, and my role as a broker is being able to put a client’s best case forward when negotiating their insurance requirements.  A boat is a valuable asset and needs to have the appropriate cover in place.
