Our mission

We specialise in ship management of small expedition- and destination cruise ships trading worldwide. We have collated experience from over 30 years of taking care of ships trading in the polar regions and other remote areas of the world, understanding the complex logistics and technical preparations necessary for a successful operation. From the ship owner’s perspective all the way to the guests experiences onboard. 

At Salén Ship Management we strive to run a hands-on operation with shore staff that include captains, chief engineers, bridge officers, hotel managers and pursers. All experienced and understanding of the life and work onboard. Some of them sharing their time between ship and shore. We believe in the small group where communication runs smoothly and quickly and where flexibility and ability to adapt to new situations is key.

At Salén Ship Management we take pride in keeping a classic fleet up to modern technical standard with the latest technical equipment when it comes to environmental standards yet maintaining the soul and character of the ship.

A confident ship manager, experts in a niche market

Salén Ship Management has the full technical management of Island Sky and Hebridean Sky. These excellent destination- and expedition cruise ships carry just over 100 passengers and trades around the globe. For 365 days a year SSM takes care of ships supplies, fuel procurement, port bookings, maintenance, crew changes, repairs, and dry dockings. Be it at the Antarctic peninsula, the remote islands of the south pacific or the more frequently trafficked ports of Europe, we make sure the ship is always ready for charter and the guest’s next adventure.

At Salén Ship Management we run our ships in a way that meets the high expectations of owners and charters. If you ask us, we have the best crew in the industry and our ships are always operated in compliance with all applicable national- and international rules and regulations.
