About Us

Premier Marine Services is based in Halifax, Nova Scotia, Canada and is owned and managed by Captain Les Savage.

With valued input from Founder and Consultant, Captain Brian Donovan, the primary focus of Premier Marine Services is to provide logistical support to larger private yachts.

Since 2003, we have serviced over 230 yachts; the majority being “word of mouth “referrals from satisfied clients.

We have been using the Professional Services of Premier Marine Services every summer since our inaugural trip to our seasonal homeport in 2008.

Premier Marine Services has become an essential part of our shore team while we are in Nova Scotia and or Canadian Waters.

We can rely on them from the smallest to the largest requirement. “In some ways, I feel that Brian knows the boat as well as any crew member”.

If you are visiting Eastern Canada I can highly recommend Capt. Brian and Premier Marine Services to make your trip perfect.

Captain Les Savage

When not flying large transport aircraft for a major airline, Les was often found delivering yachts from ports in the Caribbean and Europe to North and Central America.

Now retired from aviation and with over 23 years of experience in the yachting industry, Les has developed a clear appreciation of the needs of both Captains and crew.

Since joining Premier Marine Services, Les has successfully met the needs of clients navigating Maritime waters and through the St. Lawrence Seaway to the Great Lakes.
