  • Your advice needed!!!

    After long last SSTG have got back to me, and have asked me if I wanted to go away with Navalmar. Now I have tried to research the company however it is quite hard to find out much about them in detail. So I was wondering if anyone on this forum work with navalmar or have any connections with them??? and could share any advice if possible.

    So I was wanting to ask your advice concerning -foreign crew?
    promotion ?
    age of ships?
    new tonnage?

    Thank's in advance

    Here, allow me to google that for you: -

    Foreign Crew - Considering they also have offices in India and China I think I'd go out on a limb here and say that they probably have Indian, Chinese and possibly Filipino crew. Is that a problem?
    Promotion - You're a cadet and will remain a cadet with them. Promotion is not something you need think about for at least three years.
    Age of Ships - Newest is 1996 and the oldest is 1981 with the rest dottered in between. If you think thats a bad thing then it isn't. Best place for a cadet is on an older vessel where it is not quite as automated and you actually have to learn to do things manually.

    Wasn't that difficult?

      Navalmar get mentioned a fair bit in this thread... it doesn't make great reading but is 5 years old:

      Doesn't sound as dreadful here:

      I'd be surprised if the crews weren't predominantly Indian, but that's an assumption. Seriously I just put Navalmar into Google, lol.

      Guess you beat me Guinessman, never ceases to suprise me how much "research" some people do!!!

          Back in my box, but was just pointing out something that took me all of five minutes to find on Google...

            Hi Tommo, I'm a phase one deck cadet with Navalmar. To the best of my knowledge GM has hit the nail on the head really. Oh and I've spoken to a deck cadet who has completed her first sea phase with Navalmar and she didn't have a bad word to say about the experience
