SHIP HANDLING / PILOTAGE 2017-05-19T11:22:08+00:00

Ship Handling can be described as an art form, of which only the basic theory can be taught and the skill must then be learned during many years of practice. Indeed many ships Pilots insist that they continue learning the art until the day they retire.

Our ship handling professionals have decades of experience as ship Captains and Pilots, authorised by Competent Harbour Authorities (CHA’s) in numerous Ports.

We have experience in handling a vast array of vessel types from small coasters to VLCC’s, passenger vessels, war ships and everything in between.

Basically, if it floats, we can handle it, and we probably already have!
