Company Profile


Kvarner Crewing Services is an MLC 2006 approved crewing agency, offering a complete package of crew management and training services, with focus on establishing the strongest relationship between the shipowner and the seafarers. 

We were founded by SeaQuest Shipmanagement to become its manning arm and improve the performance of managed vessels: Kvarner and SeaQuest together provide the advantages of a middle-sized manning agency, having access to a substantial pool of seafarers, and the accurate quality control of a ship manager serving a limited number of clients. Today we serve also owners outside of SeaQuest managed fleet.

We are present in Croatia, with a recruitment office in Rijeka, and in the Philippines, with a network of recruitment offices headquartered in Makati-Manila, in partnership with Elburg Shipmanagement Phils.

Our set-up is completed by high-level training centres in Croatia and the Philippines, thus providing a substantial platform to select qualified and professional officers and crew, with direct control of personnel’s competence and performance.

We directly recruit Filipino, Croatian, Montenegro and Italian seafarers. We also recruit seafarers from other nations, such as Ukraine, Romania, India, Indonesia, China and Burma, from trusted selected partners.

Our quality management system complies with the Maritime Labour Convention, MLC 2006, and is ISO9001:2015 certified by Bureau Veritas. 

We aim to provide effective crewing solutions and ensure that our clients’ ships are operated to the best standards, delivering the highest levels of performance and efficiency at competitive cost.
