Zeaborn Ship Management is a pure third party ship manager. We manage our customers’ vessels as if they were our own, based on a long history as ship owner. We focus on Safety, Transparency, Asset Protection and Reliability.
Our ship management portfolio includes Crew Management, Technical Management, Safety & Quality, OPEX Controlling & Accounting as well as tailored reporting based on customers individual requirements. We also offer additional services as Insurance Arrangement & Claims Management, Chartering & Post-Fixture Operations, Newbuilding Supervision and Technical Consultancy Services.

At Zeaborn Ship Management special focus is given to career development and training. From Performance Support Programs (PSP)/ “Train-the-Trainer”, Computer based training solutions and Health Conscious Behavior Programs up to Maritime Resource Management (MRM).
We identify and nurture talents who take pride in their profession, understand the future challenges of the industry and have appropriate business acumen. Cadet and training programs as well as streamlined relief and promotion planning are further vital pillars of our success.
To further increase the safety awareness of all employees ashore and at sea, we initiated an anual noon-to-noon safety celebration “ZEABORN 24”, this year under the motto: ‘Challenge and Response’, when, within 24 hours, management representatives of Zeaborn Ship Management called the seagoing staff on board our managed fleet to talk about all aspects of safety on board.
We provide a comprehensive tailormade OPEX reporting with customized frequency and details including short-term liquidity planning if requested.
We manage an obvious separation in budgeted and unforeseen costs. Items are clearly separated in different categories as modification, investment, extraordinary expenses, upgrades, etc. A flexible accounting scheme enables personalized data mapping to owners’ chart of account, which is adaptable to the ship owners’ requirements.
From the planning and construction until the handover to owner: We have a proven track-record of more than 245 newbuildings realized in the last years in Asia and Europe! By being on-site, monitoring and closely following all developments during the complete production process, we make sure our customer will get exactly the vessel he has contracted.
We handle Chartering, Marine Operations & Charter Control matters in order to ensure service reliability for our customers. Our team works closely with owners and charterers to develop tailor-made solutions and strategies for maximum vessel employment success and smooth ship operations. An extensive charter relationship management with personal contact ensures a large network amongst all major charterers and makes sure the most attractive employment possibilities.
We make sure our customers are protected against financial risks when an adverse event occurs. Among others, we offer coverage arrangements for Hull & Machinery, Protection & Indemnity, Loss of Hire, War Risk, Deviation, Strike & Delay. To us, providing tailor-made risk coverage is part of our responsibility towards our customers’ assets. Therefore, we have carefully chosen the best insurance companies as our partners and we manage claims in a professional, timely and cost-effective manner.
