The Crew that will navigate you to your success

Bogdan Zelenski / Founder

When I looked at the crewing industry in 1997, I felt that something was missing.

There wasn't enough accountability, transparency, or consistency. The shipowners weren't confident about who they were doing business with, and seafarers operated in a cloud of mystery. I founded Alpha Navigation in 1997 in an effort to create the kind of crew management company that I wanted to both work for and hire.

I am proud to say that we have not only lived up to this goal, but we maintain a tradition of surpassing it. From our rigorous screening tests for our seafarers to our strong relationships with shipowners, our dedication to quality and transparency is evident. We've found that seafarers gladly step up to the challenge of representing Alpha Navigation on the seas when they are held to higher standards. We've found that shipowners want to hire our seafarers when our process is completely accessible and visible to them. We've understood the human factor, and we've redefined the way it's used in the crewing business.
