Distinguished global reputation: Since the company’s humble beginnings in 1982, Marlow Navigation has grown to become a globally renowned and trusted name in the commercial ship management industry. From first working as a small team out of a rented office in the maritime hub of Limassol, to firmly emerging as a fully fledged crew and ship management company.
Today, a network spanning more than 10 countries, with approximately 800 shore-based staff and 14,000 crew onboard vessels at any given time, underpins the company’s success story, business sustainability, and client-focussed ethos. This steadfast progress, especially amid fast-changing and challenging market conditions is surely testament to company service values, industry maturity, and adaptability.
Client-focussed ship management services: Understanding shipowner requirements and expectations then making them our core responsibility is what truly allows us to provide tailor-made, effective solutions. Focus is always on striking a balance between cost-efficiency and quality, achieved by implementing established procedures and management systems, as well as embracing operating flexibility. Indeed, extensive industry experience is what puts us in good stead to better plan, integrate and deliver optimal results for clients.
Our scope of services has over the past three decades broadened to incorporate a wide range of ship management activities, including crew management, technical ship management, new building supervision, finance and administration, crew training and safety, and offshore crewing. Our full management department meanwhile operates a diverse fleet, including container ships, bulk carriers, multipurpose vessels, tankers, and other specialised vessels.
Solid foundations in crewing: Our company’s most important asset is its human resource – our crew! A strong, long-established and diverse team of both shore and seafaring staff is the cornerstone of our success. No doubt, in a demanding industry such as shipping, a highly specialised, trained and motivated team is crucial.
This is why we put so much emphasis on making sure our crew training facilities maintain this high level of output. This includes a state-of-the-art maritime academy and international naval training centres, ensuring cadets are fully ready, certified and regularly appraised. At the same time, advanced quality management systems and procedures are set in place to safeguard lives of crew at sea, as well as the assets entrusted to us by our clients.
