Bluewater Marine Management Ltd was established on 1st January
2000, following a management buy-out of Crescent RoRo Ltd,
from the parent group Crescent Plc. Separate companies have
been formed within the group to ensure that our clients have
full confidence that any trading or financial difficulty of
one ship owner, cannot impact on another. Bluewater Ship Management
Ltd is one such company.
Over the years we have gained very considerable experience
in managing a diverse fleet under a variety of flag states
and crew nationalities, but our particular expertise is the
management of both passenger and freight RoRo vessels. At
present we manage a fleet of 10 Freight RoRo vessels operating
a daily service, between Istanbul and Trieste, for the leading
Turkish RoRo Owner /Operator. Our Safety Management System
was established in the Turkish fleet in 1996 and in 1997 we
obtained ISM Certification for the entire fleet - 5 years
before it became mandatory for this class of vessel.
In November 1999 our Turkish client commenced a programme
of building new freight RoRo vessels with the German shipyard,
Flensburger Schiffbau-Gesellschaft (FSG), Flensburg. We were
naturally delighted when Bluewater were awarded the ship management
and new building contract of the new tonnage. So far, construction of 10 vessels has taken place under the supervision of our Technical Department with a further ship due for delivery in 2010.
The ships were designed by FSG who, combined with a significant
amount of practical input from the experienced team at Bluewater,
produced award winning vessels.
