I just wanted to thank you again for all of your assistance with the survey process for the purchase of my 51 Riviera. As I am new to bigger diesel boats, and the complexities that come with them, your involvement in the pre-purchase survey brought significant peace of mind for me. I was greatly impressed by the amount of time you took to inspect the boat, and the level of detail you went into for each element of the hull and machinery. You clearly have an extensive knowledge in your field, and I was grateful for the knowledge you passedRead More
I WOULD HIGHLY RECOMMEND RTM FOR ALL MARINE MATTERS In January 2015 we employed Rod Twitchin Marine to conduct a Pre-Purchase and Survey Insurance Condition Report on the 41.0m Sovereign Yachts, Superyacht "MOON SAND". This report was compiled from a two day along side investigation of all in water machinery and operational safety and system checks, followed by a 12 hour sea trail from Thailand to Malaysia which proved to be an important part of the pre-purchase process in the final negotiation and it was finished off with an out of water vessel survey. Rod conducted himself in a veryRead More
Various Superyacht Services Having used Rod at RTM twice in the last 12 months regarding two separate vessels. First was to compose an Operations Manual for the 88ft Monte Fino "MV SAHANA", the second occasion was for a Pre-Purchase Survey of the 100ft Sunseeker "MY COLETTE". He has a wealth of experience and knowledge of the engineering and systems involved in running these larger vessels. Rods back up and availability for further questions and assistance in running these vessels has been most valuable to me. I thoroughly recommended Rod for his professionalism and knowledge in the marine industry. Yours Sincerely,
I approached RTM based on a recommendation from a friend of a friend. They helped me carry out two pre-purchase surveys of motor yachts that I was contemplating purchasing. By being prepared to go the extra step in conducting the survey of the first vessel I was considering, RTM uncovered two reasonably serious issues that the vessel had been suffering for a period of time. These issues weren’t easily identifiable and may of possibly had more serious consequences on other parts of the vessel. RTM through knowing some history of the vessel dismantled these key areas of the vessel thatRead More
Rod recently acted for me as both surveyor and superintendent in relation to engineering works on my yacht. His level of commitment, knowledge and professionalism is outstanding. You are in safe hands with Rod. I would thoroughly recommend Rod Twitchin to anyone needing marine construction or engineering works.
I would highly recommend Rod Twitchin Marine if you looking for a pre-inspection before you purchase a boat. I found Rod extremely easy to work with, he carried out a very detailed inspection of the boat and explained the report so we had a complete picture of what we were buying. Being new to this style of boating we found Rod took the time to answer any of our questions on the day and gave us ongoing support over the next few weeks even after the deal was done. Should we ever purchase another boat there is no question thatRead More
