About Us

Founded in 2016, Keil Maritime Pty Ltd was originally operated by sole trader Daniel Keil, assisting local maritime operators in the operational and legislative needs of their vessels. 

Since the closure of NT Marine Branch and the transition to AMSA as National Regulator  in July 2018, the company has grown, continuing to support locals with maritime services and advice, and now providing further services in Naval Architectural, Ocean Engineering and Project Management needs throughout the Top End, Australia and Internationally.

In January 2020, we established a branch on Phillip Island, Victoria, and in July 2021 we launched a new office in Perth to ensure we're keeping up with client demand.
