Crew management

The quality of any ship management service is directly proportional with the competence of its crews, which is why we place great emphasis on seafarer recruitment, selection and development.

Our in house crewing department allows us to maintain close relations with our seafarers, enabling us to manage the manning process as efficiently as possible and to achieve a very high retention rate, which today is a vital element of quality crew management.

We maintain a pool of approximately 500 highly motivated crew with specialized qualifications and expertise. All our crew members undergo constant training in our modern in-house training facility so that crew skills and knowledge are maintained in line with the changing legislation and industry demands.
