The successful running of a ship depends on the labor effort, discipline and teamwork of the entire crew, from Master to Apprentice, thus we all look for the perfect Master; the expert, the motivator, the tutor,the one available 48 hours a day, the one with 20 years in rank at the age of 35, the patient one, the flawless one, the sober one and the always “ready when needed one”.


It is important for Shipowners to avoid unnecessary operating costs and one of the few variable components is crewing. The countervailing influence is ship efficiency and many companies put extra officers and crew onboard above the minimum required to facilitate onboard maintenance and port operations. Likewise High Synergy arises in course of seafarers’ cooperation with different complementary skills (for example cooperation of people with organizational and technical skills).  Hereby well-skilled and properly selected crew makes shipping more efficient.


Crewing and Manning


Navis Crew Management (NCM) assigns well-qualified and certified ratings and officers for all types of vessels within merchant and offshore in compliance with IMO STCW Code 2010, ILO MLC 2006 qualification requirements and according to the standards of ISO9001:2008.


NCM sets up the Quality Management System based on the principle of “Pareto efficiency”.


Cadet Training Program

We are proud to support Cadet Training Program developing our future officers in all onboard disciplines- Deck, Engineering and ETO. A diverse fleet enables cadets to gain sea experience of cross sector on different types of vessels. Our strategy is to encourage the graduates to pursue a long term career growth within our Company.


Positive Work Ethics

NCM promotes the right values and attitudes towards work by means of Standards of Cultural Management Skills and Values Formation as well as through Shipowner specific briefings for safety and proper decorum in the corresponding working media.

Pre-Departure Orientation

There is also a company code to avoid sea accidents, proper decorum and protocol expected from them as competent seamen.
