About us

Our Team

We keep your interests first

RM Propulsion is an independent service company for the marine industry. Many years of field experience made us what we are today: specialists in oil lubricated stern tube systems. With the same philosophy of being experts through hands-on field experience we also offer propulsion overhaul services for thrusters and CPP’s.

Our head office is located in Hoorn, The Netherlands.


Our goal

Our goal is to be the best partner for vessel owners, when it comes to operating and maintaining oil lubricated stern tube seal systems, thrusters and CPP/ OD boxes.

We do this by offering high quality spare parts for very competitive prices, we provide worldwide overhaul service by well trained and experienced service engineers and when needed we will be your independent technical advisors and sounding board.

Many ship owners seem to believe that they have no other option but to refer to the original makers for spare parts and services.


But there is an alternative!
