A Family Legacy Turned Personal Passion: The Roots of Ievgen's Seafaring Career

Ievgen's path to becoming a seafarer began in 2010, deeply influenced by his family. With a lineage of seafarers including his father and grandfather, Ievgen was drawn to the sea. But it was more than a family tradition; it was a personal choice driven by the love for travel and new experiences.
