Helm Insurance Services

Helm Insurance was started by Damian Pugh to provide an unbiased advice service to boaties. In April 2018, armed with this wealth of knowledge Damian formed Helm Insurance Services. In July 2020, Shelly came onboard bringing with her 20+ years experience in the industry.

“I was fortunate enough to start boating at an early age and, like many other boaters, it became a life-long passion and career,” Damian says.

Helm acts for the policy holder, not the Insurer. Assisting clients to identify the best options available and pitfalls to avoid when it comes to marine insurance. Whilst Helm’s speciality is marine insurance, Damian, Shelly and the team can provide advice on other classes of business.
