Marlow Navigation is pleased to announce that it is celebrating its 40th Anniversary this year, marking four decades of providing exceptional service to its customers and seafarers alike.

The theme for the occasion is “WITH YOU ALL THE WAY”, depicting the company’s pledge of remaining ever closer and steadfast for its partners – customers, people and communities – today, and for tomorrow.

Established in 1982 and commencing its operations in January 1983 in Limassol, the Marlow Navigation family has firmly emerged as a notable ship management company. With a vast network extending across 14 countries, Marlow employs over 1,150 shore staff members and more than 15,500 seafarers on board vessels at any given time.

This includes offices for technical and crew management in Cyprus, Germany, the Netherlands, India and Oman, as well as a global network of fully controlled seafarer manning agencies and dedicated training centres.

“Our successes over the last 40 years have been propelled by the trust, dedication and loyalty of clients, partners and colleagues throughout the Marlow network,” stated Founder and Chairman, Hermann Eden. “At this proud occasion, the company extends its heartfelt thanks to you all for the ongoing trust and commitment,” he added.

Over the past forty years, the range of services offered at Marlow has expanded significantly to encompass comprehensive maritime activities. These operations include complete technical management of various types of ships, ranging from merchant to offshore vessels, crew management, newbuilding supervision, training and safety, as well as financial and administration.

“This 40-year milestone is all about a commitment to close partnerships; with our people at sea and ashore, as well as our local communities,” said Joint Managing Director, Jan Meyering. “We are grateful to all for their ongoing support throughout the years, and celebrate this achievement together with them.”

“As we celebrate this anniversary, we reflect on our past achievements and special moments, but also look towards the many opportunities that lie ahead,” continued Joint Managing Director, Andreas Neophytou. “We remain totally committed to modernisation in shipping and tackling the major challenges of decarbonisation and digitalisation, with innovation and collaboration,” he concluded.

The company will be commemorating its 40-year anniversary over the coming months, sharing updates and special moments via various channels. Much of this can be followed via the company’s website at as well as on social media channels with the hashtag #Marlow40years
