With so many beautiful waterways and great boating weather, it’s no wonder there are so many boat owners on the Gold Coast. While owning a boat can be a lot of fun, the reality is that they require regular maintenance checks to help prevent potential issues arising that could lead to costly repairs or worse, an unsafe vessel.
Now there’s a unique club you can join as a boat owner that gives you everything you need under one roof! Safe and trouble-free boating is happy boating and that’s what the RTM Club is all about. Joining is easy and once you’re in, you get all the benefits & discounts for an entire year. Just give one of our friendly crew a call. All the details you need are on our Contact page.
3 reasons why joining the RTM Club will make your boating life easier and better
Your boat is an asset and by keeping it maintained and looked after inside and out, it will hold its value and depreciate less. This means more money in your pocket when, and if, you sell your boat, and a lower depreciation for your insurance value.
Neglecting small damage or signs of potential trouble can ruin a planned boating weekend, leaving you on the water without your creature comforts, or worse, engine trouble. A reliable boat is the best way to get maximum enjoyment for all your water sport activities, and the best way to get that is by joining the RTM Club and receiving regular inspections by an expert in marine surveying and marine project management.
Perhaps one of the best things about joining the RTM Club is that you can relax! You don’t have to spend your down-time working on your boat and getting ready for your next day out. When you do venture out onto the water it will be with the peace of mind that everything is ship-shape.
We understand that not everyone is an expert in boat maintenance and that’s why we’ve created the exclusive RTM Club especially for Gold Coast boat owners.
When you join our club, we’ll take care of the professional side of boating, leaving you to enjoy the leisure side of it. After all, that’s why you bought your boat in the first place, right?

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
