Managing Director's Message

VR Maritime is one of the renowned Ship Managers of India, now in its 7th year of operations. We have continued to move ahead serving the interests of Ship Owners as well as our Seafarers with a fine balance of financial wisdom and trademark transparency.

We started as Crew Managers and given the trust build up, we have entered into Technical Management with same Ship Owners.

Our sense of satisfaction in last 6 years especially when the dark patches of financial crisis still keep haunting us, has been meeting Budgets within 2% limit with unstinting support from Ship Owners, Seafarers, Port Agents, Travel Agents and entire team of VRM. I extend my gratitude to each participant in our destiny. Year 2016 has produced the biggest challenge of maintaining vessel’s safe operations in tight budgets. We improvised the follow ups with better systems and making technological advances in management of ships. Analysis of business models are tested with the release of each dollar by all stake holders. We continue to operate under highest standards of reliability.

Ascertaining Company’s business performance, we are financially stable with upward graph on the business proposals in hand. KPIs (Key Performance Indicators) have been made specific to Owners and stay dear to us. Our tradition to analyse Quality Objectives and bring in desired changes, fast decision making and staying connected with the seafarers sentiments at all times has resulted in sound business strategies. On social front VR Maritime is an integral part of NGO called FINS (Forum for Integrated National Security). We are one of the leading lights as Maritime Security (Indian Coasts) study group. Our commitment to our Country remains the only agenda.

Jai Hind! Jai Navik!
