“Norman R. Wright & Sons has engaged Peter Holmes of Direct Marine Solutions to provide numerous vessel stability analysis reports and other naval architectural advice since 2006. Over this time, we have always received outstanding service and support from Peter. His willingness to share his vast knowledge, ability to identify or trouble-shoot problems and to provide constructive advice and practical recommendations is invaluable to us as designers and builders.

Director, Norman R. Wright & Sons

I have been supported by Peter for the past four years, where he has provided professional  and reliable project management, engineering, supply chain and logistics services.

Since the completion of the NGR mock-up, Peter has become my first choice provider for rapid engineering and project management services, and has supported the consultation process for design changes related to key driver interfaces, and alternative vehicle interior accessibility options.  I continue to recommend Peter and DMS Transportation for any project management or engineering consultancy services. ”
