Points Of Intrest

  • We are proud to declare that none of the ships has ever lost a minute of hire due to bad condition or non-readiness of cargo holds.
  • We are proud to certify that in 95 per cent of any Port Sate Control or USCG inspections we have clean papers with no deficiencies at all.
  • We are proud to note that all our seamen, who regularly come back in same positions, are competing with each other to come back to our ships.
  • We are proud to have applied all new rules, regulations and requirements, even those which are still not mandatory, long before their implementation dates.
  • We are proud to have applied since the very first days the latest state of the art ship to office communications and in house technology and management systems, i.e. we are amongst the first in Greece that applied the Pole Star monitoring system of Purple Finder for tracing and alerting vessels position, long before DSAS alert and tracing systems were required by IMO.
