Based in Hawthorne, Aquamarine is centrally located; close to Brisbane's major boatbuilding and hardstand facilities, and the airport. With a range of trusted associates in most States, help is never far away. We look forward to opening our Central Queensland and Darwin offices shortly as Antony attends Darwin regularly.
Formed by Antony Krokowski, Aquamarine strives to take the hassle out of marine safety compliance. Antony delivers professionalism with integrity, as a Registered Professional Engineer in Queensland (RPEQ). To offer professional engineering services (including Naval Architecture) in Queensland, the Professional Engineers Act 2002 requires that the engineer be registered (RPEQ).
Antony had advised Major Multinationals like BHP and Rio Tinto for many years; while on assignment with Bechtel. As a consummate Marine Assurance Professional, Antony looks for 'defence in depth' strategies, and not just 'that's the way we've always done it'.
Antony continues his appointed to the Executive Committee of the Australian Division Council, Royal Institution of Naval Architects (RINA).
Antony's experience before Aquamarine includes five years as Senior Naval Architect for Maritime Safety Queensland. Prior to this he was a Naval Architect for the NSW Waterways Authority (now called NSW Maritime). Aquamarine is acutely aware of the potential pitfalls and delays in commercial certification, particularly for mutual recognition of boats that wish to transfer interstate.
We have been accredited by MSQ on behalf of AMSA. AMSA has recently released a new Domestic Commercial Vessels Act, which sets out to simplify commercial vessels wishing to move between States.
Antony has also investigated a number of recreational boating incidents and has served as a Safety Judge for the Australian Marine Awards (Boat of the Year) for three years. Antony is an active member of the National Marine Safety Committee's (NMSC's) Technical Advisory Panel and Standards Australia Small Craft Committee.
