Marine Surveying

We offer IIMS standard marine surveys including pre-purchase, insurance or structural inspections, formal valuations and expert witness work. We specialise in GRP, aluminium and wooden craft up to 24m. We pride ourselves on a personalised service, speedy response times and are not afraid to offer an opinion based on the evidence.

Adventure Preparation

In 2017-19 we fulfilled a lifelong dream, embarking on a two-year sailing adventure cruising the North Atlantic aboard our Oyster 485 ‘Escapade of Rame’. We offer a bespoke service enabling others to do the same.

Yacht Deliveries

We can help you with the handover of your new boat from the broker or the builder’s yard; we can bring the boat to her new home port. We love it when you come on the trip with us – a chance to familiarise yourself with the boat whilst we take the strain.

Boat Search

What sort of boat are you looking for? What factors are most important for you? What plans do you have? What limitations might there be? We can help you sort the wheat from the chaff and guide you through the whole process of buying the right boat for your needs.

Own Boat Tuition

Is your partner a little nervous of the new purchase? Are the systems more complicated than they look? New to night sailing? Whether you are an absolute beginner or a seasoned sailor looking to broaden your experience, we run bespoke training packages to demystify or just build confidence. This can be done in your own boat, aboard our beautiful Oyster 485, or in our 6m RIB.

Yacht Management

If you have ever turned up at the boat on a Friday night to find the batteries flat, the engine dead, or a small aquarium growing underneath and your weekend plans in turmoil, you’ll know the importance of regular maintenance. The sea is a hostile environment – even in a smart marina. Our yacht management service will ensure that you can always execute your plans - if the weather gods allow!


We have decades of maritime experience to bring to yacht refit management, business change programmes, maritime security challenges or the introduction of new technologies such as autonomous navigation systems. We have teamed up with the folks at Doteki International to focus on the strategic stuff; RF Marine can help you deliver your maritime ambitions.
