Captain Davis joined Guernsey Ports as an assistant harbourmaster in 2015 and was promoted to head of port operations three years later.

He started his seagoing career with BP Shipping and then transferred to the Royal Fleet Auxiliary. He entered the ports industry in 2005, initially as a dock master at Port of Tilbury, before joining Portsmouth International Port as its operations manager in 2007 and moving to Guernsey in 2015.

Captain Davis said: “I have fallen in love with Guernsey during my time here and it is an honour to be able to serve the island as its harbourmaster.

"David has been an excellent mentor throughout his time here - I have some big boots to fill!”
