Crew Placement

With a background in hospitality ranging from professional crew work aboard some of the finest yachts on this Coast as well as yacht management to catering and ultimately estate management, I combine my unique skills with a wealth of knowledge and practical experience on nearly every level of island living. Offering the finest personalized professional concierge services to accommodate your ordinary and extraordinary needs ensuring maximum enjoyment of your precious time in the islands and peace of mind while you are away.

Beyond doubt the lack of quality seafarers has been and continues to be the single most important issue in the ship management sector.

The best built ship with the most modern equipment, most imaginative financing and best shore-based support is not enough to guarantee a successful shipping operation. The critical ingredient is the crew. We recognize this challenge and more importantly, has invested in the infrastructure needed to source and supply first-class crew and staff for luxury yachts and merchant navy.

Sree Krishna Shipping, Hospitality and Concierge Services Recruitment provides marine recruitment and crew management services to clients within the merchant navy and superyacht sectors. We recruit Deck and Engine Officers, Able Seamen, Cooks, Stewards and Pursers for temporary and permanent vacancies.

It is our aim to promote highly trained and motivated Montenegrin and Croatian Seafarers at Global Maritime Human Resource Market.

There are 10 great reasons to use Indian Officers and Crew:

Both countries are virtually on the white list.
Excellent maritime educational system existing for many years.
ISM trained officers.
Officers are all computer literate
Officers are trained through specialized upgrading courses like integration and safety development course, ISM, SMS, ISPS, Safety and Environment protection, Oil Pollution Prevention, handling of specialized tonnage, MARPOL, etc.
All officers are fluent in written and spoken English
Customarily no alcohol and drug problems
Customarily no visa problems thus enabling joining at very short notice.
Great number of junior officers entering the market every year.
India will remain a very stable crewing source for many years to come.
Presently about 300,000 Indian seafarers are serving the industry. This number is likely to increase.”
