Taking Crewing to New Heights!

May has been pretty amazing and we can't wait to tell you all about it!

From new initiatives and product releases, to community meetings and new seafarer stories,

there is surely plenty to talk about! ✌️

Let us share what we have been up to this month ⛵


Shipowners take control of their manning with Seafair!🎉

Seafair is launching a game-changing initiative for shipowners; how they can take control of their manning.

Having established manning operations in 16 countries and now serving 30 companies with over 600 vessels, Seafair's digital tools provide a real-time view of 300,000 seafarers, enabling principals to manage their seafarer supply by building their own manning agency, previously a privilege of only industry giants.

Combining operational knowledge with advanced technology, Seafair is transforming the manning landscape, promising transparency, effectiveness, and a new paradigm in maritime crewing.

This innovative service offers principals transparent manning control without significant investment.Seafair manages the necessary infrastructure, while partners receive stock options and access to company financials.

Product Sneak peek: Transparent Seafarers Pool View 👨‍✈️ 🚢

Have you ever dreamt of working with a manning agent who would give you access to their whole free pool (aka seafarers that are not locked in a principal’s pool)? Seafair makes it happen!

Principals who use our full manning service can now see a real-time, transparent representation of the 300K seafarers in our free pool for a specific vacancy. This view shows how seafarers rank in terms of quality & salary, to help principals objectively understand if the seafarer’s requirements are fair based on current market conditions.

Check the video above to see how this works!☝️

This is the first time that a manning agency shares transparently a view of available seafarers with clients, and is aligned with Seafair’s vision of building a more fair & transparent crewing.
