Meet Riptide Marine

Riptide Marine is based in South Devon, covering the South Hams, Plymouth and Torbay.

With over 15 years experience servicing, maintaining and repairing all types of Inboards, Outboards, Drives and vessels.

Formal Training & Experience

The Journey began when Kyle started his Marine engineering apprenticeship with VT Halmatic in 2005, here he learnt his craft working on a large variety of M.O.D. vessels. Including refitting, repairing and overhauling those used by the Royal Navy, Marines, Police and S.B.S.

During this time VT was bought out and taken over by BAE systems whom he continued to work for up until 2014 maintaining and repairing the fleet of training vessels located at the BRNC college in Dartmouth.

The contract for these training vessel then changed hands meaning Kyle was involved in a transfer of employment to UK Docks where he remained until 2018.
