Ship Management Manuals

Killybegs Marine Surveyors creates ship management and training manuals for all vessels, ships, and boats in all aspects of the marine industry.

Domestic ship management manuals are required for all domestic vessels over 500 tonnes. The manuals detail the different equipment and tools on board as well as the correct handling procedures. All commercial vessels require management manuals and ship specific procedure manuals. These manuals detail not only the equipment, technology, and handling procedures but also how the ship and business are run. Each management manual is ship specific and encompasses all required procedures as laid down by the MSO (Marine Survey Office). In addition to creating customised and highly specific vessel management manuals, we also conduct external audits on existing systems to identify potential threats and opportunities.

No matter the vessel type or business purpose, let Killybegs Marine Surveyors handle the creation of your ship management manual.

Ship Management Manuals FAQs

What is a ship management manual?

A ship management manual is a guide that details the equipment and technology on board a ship, the correct boat handling techniques, as well as any business or commercial use of the vessel. They provide a single source for all ship procedures and operations.

Why are ship management manuals necessary?

The MSO requires any commercial vessel or domestic vessel over 500 tonnes to have its own management and procedure manual. This allows for easy training of new staff for commercial vessels and ensures that domestic vessels are being captained by competent and aware ship-owners.

How much does it cost to compile a ship management manual?

The cost of creating a ship management manual will vary as each manual is highly specific to each company and vessel. For further information as well as pricing details please contact Noel and Killybegs Marine Surveyors directly.
