Our Manning Agency in the Philippines has supplied quality crew to clients since 1986.

Access to one of the largest seafaring communities in the world coupled with our commitment to ensuring the well-being of crew members and their training to the highest standards ensure that your assets are in good hands.

The past decade has seen a remarkable growth in the world fleet, making sustainable crewing one of the major challenges faced by the industry. Our focus on recruitment, training and retention of seafarers through an established local presence has helped meet these challenges.

Aside from direct crew recruitment through the Manning Agency, we work with selected, trusted and regularly audited crewing agencies around the world, allowing us to meet client requirements concerning crew nationality.

Construction supervision

Hellespont provides all aspects of construction or retrofit supervision, commencing with shipyard selection and design evaluation. After successful delivery of the vessel the team continues to monitor performance and follow up with any guarantee claims. While requirements vary from project to project, the scope of newbuilding supervision can be broadly categorised as follows:

  • Project evaluation

  • Newbuilding & retrofit contract (specification, evaluation, negotiation)

  • Yard selection
  • Specification and maker selection
  • Drawing approval
  • Project supervision and reporting
  • Shop test inspections
  • Sea trials/delivery
  • Guarantee claims handling

Drawing approval, maker selection and overall supervision of projects is conducted by a dedicated newbuilding department. Site teams are established at the shipyard from steel cutting to delivery, with every step being closely monitored to ensure delivery of a quality vessel. The site teams consist of experienced supervisors under the management of a site office manager who is the point of contact for all communications and reporting.

We ensure rigorous construction supervision that delivers our customers high quality ships out of yards.
