East Coast Marine Repairs is owned and operated by Todd Payling. Todd is a fully qualified marine technician with over 16 years industry experience.

A keen fisherman with a strong passion for boating, Todd began his career in Newcastle gaining experience on a broad range of inboard engines, Mercruiser sterndrives and outboard engines including Yamaha, Evinrude E-TEC, Johnson, Mercury and Honda. A move to Sydney in 2009 saw Todd broaden his skills in diesel engines including MAN, CAT, Yanmar, Volvo, Caterpillar, Twindisc transmissions and Mase and Northern Lights generators. In addition, Todd was fortunate to work abroad in both Noumea and the Solomon Islands, performing engine and fuel injection pump replacements in remote locations with limited facilities. 

Todd returned to Newcastle and established East Coast Marine Repairs to combine his passion for the marine industry, ambition and drive for high quality workmanship.
