Learn about the diverse and vital seafarer positions that form the backbone of our crews. From the deck to the engine room, each role plays a crucial part in safely operating our ships.

The deck crew is responsible for tasks such as mooring and unmooring the vessel, handling cargo, maintaining and repairing equipment, and assisting with navigation. These positions require physical strength, technical skills, and an ability to work in a team to ensure the smooth running of the ship.
Engineering positions refer to the personnel responsible for the maintenance and operation of the ship's propulsion and power systems. This includes the ship's engines, boilers, generators, pumps, and other machinery. The engineering department is critical to the safe operation of the ship and works closely with the deck department to ensure the vessel's overall safety and efficiency.
