More than 3,600 seafarers are employed for the vessels managed by Thenamaris, Thenamaris ConBulk and Thenamaris LNG.

Marine Personnel

At any given time approximately 2,100 seafarers are sailing on the managed vessels. The main nationalities of the seafarers are Greek, Bulgarian, Filipino, Ukrainian, Croatian, Ethiopian, Polish and Russian.

We pride ourselves on achieving an officer retention rate of more than 95% at a fleet level. This notable level of retention is a result of the successful recruitment, training, appointment and scheduling of qualified and capable seafarers.

Our marine personnel team and the crewing agencies with which we cooperate are constantly on the look-out for talented seafarers to ensure all vessels under management are adequately manned according to international regulations and charterers’ requirements. Experienced and skilled operators work around the clock to select and appoint suitable seafarers on board, as well as to maintain an adequate pool of seafarers on leave.


Managing seafarers in Greece, the Philippines and Bulgaria

Ongoing training and development of shipboard personnel is a top priority for Thenamaris. Seafarer Forums take place every year in our main sourcing locations of Athens, Greece, Manila, Philippines, and Varna, Bulgaria. Onboard training sessions are also held throughout the year in collaboration with our technical and safety and quality teams.

Thenamaris’ seafaring agent in Manila, Thenamaris Philippines Inc., supports the recruitment, scheduling and training of Filipino seafarers, a key pool for Thenamaris. Thenamaris also has seafaring representatives on the ground in Bulgaria, Croatia, Ethiopia, Germany and Ukraine who assist in the marine personnel management of seafarers.
