About RL Marine Ltd
A family run Aluminium Boat Building, Marine Engineering and Fabrication business based on the Island of Burra in the Shetland Islands, building stylish, capable, strong and stable Aluminium boats for the Pleasure, Fishing and Workboat Markets.
The idea for the business came about several years ago, when Robert was working at sea as an Engineer in the Merchant Navy. He worked all over the world, but in Australia he took notice of the boats there, many stunning designs, and surprisingly to him at the time, the vast majority of them were built from Aluminium. Since then it has been a dream of the company to design & build a range of Aluminium boats to introduce the Aussie style boats into the UK market. Step by step this dream is now becoming a reality.
