Our experienced team specialise in complete boat maintenance including, repairs & painting, fibreglass & wood works, fine finished cabinetry & fitout, servicing & installation of machinery, servicing of ancillary & propulsion systems, along with partially or fully refitting vessels, of all types and sizes.
Refit and maintenance work to any vessel starts with good planning, RTM’s unwavering integrity and experience ensures your best interests are always principal with timeframes and finances in mind. From coordinating your works to conducting them, RTM’s specialist team can cater for all aspects, right to the end with conducting seatrials by our AMSA accredited masters and engineers prior to handover.
With our team’s diverse skill set, collective experience and sea miles covered in boats of all types in all conditions, we understand all facets of construction, componentry selection and seaworthiness.
During any refit or maintenance project, we pride ourselves in our ability to communicate all matters at hand clearly and regularly with transparency being the key factor. Where possible RTM will offer our clients an estimate or firm quotation to reflect the scope of works required, and if the scope varies due to the nature of refit, RTM will advise the client of any variations to the costing to gain permission prior to conducting any additional works. No matter what work we are performing for you, we work with you to suit your individual requirements, financial and time constraints.
