We carry out all activities related to crewing in-house for a wide variety of vessel types i.e deep sea, near coastal and for the offshore industry.

In order to have a global outreach and to provide Owner & Ship Managers with a variety of crewing options we have tied up with crewing agents in the Ukraine, Bangladesh, Philippines, Myanmar, South Korea and China. This makes the business model more efficiently adaptable to varying requirements and budget constraints.  

When using 3rd party crewing agents we ensure that they follow our guidelines for quality assurance and are in a position to deliver to our standards.
