Most ship owners want to remain responsible for the commercial trading of their ships, but prefer to delegate day-to-day management. The crucial base to the smooth operation of any vessel always depends on carefully selected and well trained crews.
We maintain an up-to-date register of sea staff which is one of our main strengths in the business. We have over 8000 registered officers and engineers along with about 3000 ratings in our staff database which enables us to respond quickly to any requirement and to cover any position practically within 24 hours.
Romanian seamen have a long tradition in shipping and are known to be very capable, loyal and honest people with good working skills and attitude to the duties on board. Therefore many world-recognized companies employing our seafarers are more than satisfied with the efficiency and maintenance of their vessels.
