Bibby Ship Management has more than doubled the number of vessels under its Isle of Man statutory management service since last year, according to figures just released.

Latest figures issued by the Isle of Man Ship Registry reveal a flagged merchant fleet of 442 vessels, amounting to 16,235,059 total gross metric tons. Bibby Ship Management provides statutory management services to 71 of these vessels, amounting to more than 4 million gross metric tons - a quarter (25%) of the total registry.

Via a network of global offices, Bibby Ship Management Group provides a range of marine services to customers across the world. The company’s Isle of Man operation is the home of its statutory management service, and serves a range of customers both domestic and international.

Mark Robertshaw, Managing Director of Bibby Ship Management (Western Europe) Limited in the Isle of Man, said, “This unprecedented growth reflects the success of our customer-focused approach to ship management and reinforces just how important the power of our partnership with customers is. We are particularly pleased to be so prominent in the Isle of Man market and to be asked to provide statutory management to such a wide range of vessel types.”

Based in the Isle of Man’s renowned centre of maritime excellence, Bibby Ship Management (Western Europe) Limited specializes in providing a personalized and quality assured crew management service to the International Marine Industry.

Bibby Ship Management managed Seafarers are sourced either directly or from a worldwide network of subsidiary companies and approved sub-agencies, using industry best practice to ensure that only the right caliber of candidates is recruited. The company’s robust ISO 9001 and MLC-compliant recruitment and placement process ensures that every seafarer is suitably qualified and experienced for the vessel and role in question. Regular and on-going appraisals of qualified staff are also undertaken, ensuring a continued level of high performance, as well as compliance with all statutory and client-specific training requirements.

Robertshaw continued, “Our comprehensive policies have resulted in a low level of staff turnover and ensure that we have a consistent supply of highly-qualified seafarers, from which we can provide tailored crewing solutions for any requirement.

“We operate a documented quality management system in accordance with requirements of ISO 9001:2008, which is accredited through Lloyd’s Register of Quality Assurance. We were also the First crew management company in the Isle of Man to be awarded with a Certificate of Compliance as a recruitment and placement service business, meeting the requirements of MLC2006.”
