RC Marine

RC Marine (RCM) was formed by Directors Col Andersen and Richard Evans in response to a growing need for purpose built vessels in Port Curtis, to service the construction industry.


RCM were approved at Toll Marine Logistics as their preferred supplier for crew transfer and other logistical movements in the Gladstone harbour. We have completed hundreds of transfers in the past 5 years. Independence was the preferred boat being used by Gladstone E Campus for training of Coxswain and ESS courses. RCM have provided a service to Teras Offshore Company, supporting their crew transfers and tug to barge moving transfers when they were delivering the gas modules to the Curtis Island Project. RCM also deliver stores to tugs and ships before they leave the harbour. RCM offers an airport pickup and drop off at no charge for small passenger numbers. The vessel has been approved by Bechtel inspectors and surveyors for subcontract and is currently being promoted to other operators as a standard of excellence. RCM are the preferred transport company for Smit Lamnalco, transferring crew and stores to their standby tugs at Curtis Island Gas facilities. RCM is also a lines operation at Port Alma helping to secure ships. Transferring crew, spare parts and charts to vessels at outer anchorage is our specialty.  Additionally RCM has supported the operations of Vision Environment (QLD), Neptune Dive Services and Gladstone Regional Council, when required.

In 2016 RCM purchased the line boat operations from NSS Stevedoring and has since been involved with hundreds of ship tie ups in the harbour.

RCM has also been involved with the transport of provisions and critical spares to ships at the LNG facilities at Curtis Island. 2 of our vessels are in OVID.


RCM have an established (and continually improving) Marine Execution Plan (MEP), Maritime Security Plan (MSP), and Safety Management System (SMS), which ensures all personnel are highly qualified and trained. Strict quality assurance and quality control methods are in place for all work undertaken. RCM also has its own Maritime Security Plan.

As safety is of utmost importance, safe work methods statements, and job safety and environment analyses (JSEAs), pre-start and toolbox meetings are some of the methods RCM use to ensure safe work practises are carried out by all our staff.

RCM is covered by public liability and professional indemnity insurance. Any boat work is carried out on commercially in-survey vessels skippered by a commercial coxswain/Master operating under a vessel management system. All vessels, vehicles and offices are comprehensively insured. As part of our quality control RCM have been audited and approved by Bechtel Marine Safety Operations Manager.
