Daniel Testa is a qualified boat builder / shipwright of 15 years and has been lucky enough to have worked all over Australia in that time. He has worked in the construction of luxury flybridge cruisers to trailer boats and everything in between. He has run a successful marine maintenance business, servicing Perth for a number of years and has built a strong network of contacts in the industry. Since a very young age, Daniel has enjoyed being out on the water at every opportunity. In his spare time, you’ll find him busy working on his own personal refit projects. Daniel is also a qualified pilot, so if you don’t run in to him kicking back in one of Rottnest’s bays, he might be flying overhead.
