What does a Master do?

As a Master on board one of our vessels, you have ultimate responsibility for the crew and passengers on board. The Master develops and follows procedures on board the vessel together with the crew, and manages and allocates work among the staff on board. You will have the opportunity to operate vessels a lot, which requires a high level of navigation and manoeuvring skills in a variety of situations. As a Master, you have overall responsibility for work on board, which includes making decisions on how processes, systems, administration, mechanical maintenance, and onboard safety should all work. The crews on board are small, consisting of between two and five crew members depending on the size of the vessel. You need to have an interest in and the skills for the effective planning and supervision of day-to-day work. Masters are the face of the company and are responsible for contact and follow-ups with customers on site. Masters ensure that the vessel is operated safely and efficiently in accordance with internal and external systems requirements. The Master on board has freedom within the responsibility of their role, and can have a say in the work that takes place on board.

What does a Mate do?

A Mate on board our vessels is first and foremost a member of the deck team. A Mate’s duties largely consist of ensuring safe transfers, helping out with administrative tasks, and taking care of onboard maintenance (e.g. repairs, painting, etc.). As a Mate, you have the operational responsibility for checking deck equipment and ensuring that it is in standard condition. The Mate is the Master’s right-hand man, and is responsible for helping out when it comes to navigation, publications, charts, etc. The Mate may also be required to assist the Master in navigating and operating the vessel. The onboard crews are small, consisting of between two and five crew members, depending on the size of the vessel, which means that Mates have similar duties to Deck Hands.

What does a Deck Hand do?

Like a Mate, a Deck Hand on board our vessels is first and foremost a member of the deck team. The Deck Hand’s operational responsibility lies in taking care of maintenance on deck and in engine rooms, carrying out internal and external repairs, and ensuring safe transfers on deck. The onboard crews are small, consisting of between two and five crew members, which means that Deck Hands have similar duties to mates. The Deck Hand’s duties are delegated by the Mate and Master on board.
