Richardson Devine Marine was formed in 1989 and has since been continually operating from the Hobart waterfront building aluminium passenger and cruise/charter vessels. The two directors, Toby Richardson and Ron Devine have extensive experience in marine construction.

They have a “hands-on” approach to closely monitor the construction of each vessel and are assisted by a vastly experienced and talented workforce who are dedicated to produce quality workmanship in both construction and fitout.

RDM are members of the Australian Shipbuilders Association and the Tasmanian Marine Network.

Construction

Richardson Devine Marine are specialised builders of lightweight aluminium vessels for commercial operators around the world. Their vessels feature high quality craftsmanship utilising the latest marine equipment and supplies, to provide innovative solutions to the customer’s specific requirements.

Facility

Richardson Devine Marine’s operations are conducted from an impressive 1500 square metre construction facility in the heart of the thriving shipbuilding precinct in Hobart, Tasmania. The building hall enables two vessels to be built side by side with 13.0m clear headroom and is served by 12 x 2.0 tonne overhead cranes. Power and compressed air outlets are positioned throughout the building bays to enable fast efficient construction processes. Prefabricated modules, frames and components are produced and delivered from RDM’s nearby pre – fab facility, which keeps the main building hall unclutterd and running efficiently.

An innovative hydraulically hinged launching ramp allows vessels to be launched and retrieved and a full service fitout wharf facilitates final fitout and after sales service projects.


Contemporary administration and design offices overlook the building halls and include onsite owners rep rooms complete with all modern communication connections.
