Our Philosophy

At Zeaborn Ship Management we know about the importance of good crew management. Our current pool of seafarers includes about 4,550 highly skilled staff, whether on board or on temporary leave. All key crewing activities are handled in-house by our own experts, ensuring personal accountability. 

Diversity is at the heart of our corporate culture. We welcome the opportunity to work with people from a broad spectrum of professional and cultural backgrounds.

We care about your safety. The well-being of our crews is a top priority on our agenda. This is one of the reasons DNV GL awarded us DNV GL Excellence – 5 Stars’ certificate which attests to reliable ship operation and confirms adherence to an established set of above-average safety, environmental and quality standards.

 

Advanced Crewing Concepts

Zeaborn Ship Management offers its customers a wide range of crewing options. Based on the requirements of the given vessel and trade as well as the specifications of the vessel owner and charterer, we provide appropriately qualified staff from Europe or Asia.

Through our own manning organisation in the Philippines we have direct access to the local employment market. We also work with selected, proven agencies in Ukraine and Romania who have earned our trust over many years of service.

Crew retention is a key metric for employment quality. By offering a positive work environment on board and continuous personnel development programmes for our crews, we make sure they feel well taken care of and are motivated to give their best.

Safety

Zeaborn Ship Management strictly adheres to all applicable safety standards to minimise threats and risks to crew, ships and cargo, the environment and ultimately, our customers. We are committed to ensuring compliance with national and international rules and regulations on board our ships, wherever they go.

Safety News

Zeaborn Ship Management has a very clear focus on safety and health. To further enhance the safety awareness of all employees ashore and at sea, a joint safety campaign with the motto “Home – Your reward for staying safe every day” has been initiated. Various measures aim at assessing risks properly. The overall goal is to make clear that safety on board can only be ensured with everyone protecting himself adequately and respecting all safety regulations. The campaign, which is set up for one year, will focus on a certain safety topic each quarter, starting with “Personal Protective Equipment”. Different safety posters foster the awareness that safety is not only important for seafarers but also for their families at home:
