The Efficient Sea App is an iPad app that sets itself apart from existing programs with it’s comprehensive array of manuals, checklists, templates and compliance reporting forms. It's also very simple to use - a complete vessel management system in a single iPad app.
Conceived by an experienced superyacht captain with over 85,000 sea miles under his belt, the Efficient Sea App addresses the ever increasing demand on a ship's master's time for compliance and document archiving.
Following two years in development with live testing in real operational situations, feedback from ships' masters suggests this could be the next big thing, not just a gadget or accessory, but a core tool for efficiently managing all vessel documentation.
And the Efficient Sea App has a staggering list of documentation:
All necessary forms for ISM, SMS and MLC compliance reporting
LSA & FFE checklists; Standard Operating Procedures
A full set of reference manuals, checklists, engineering schedules
Templates for accounting wages and charter expenses
Logs for crew and operational matters
Familiarization forms for onboard operations and passenger activities
Arrival and departure forms for international ports
Shipyard job cards
The Efficient Sea App integrates with Google sheets allowing customization of forms, a tap-to-sign facility to streamline submission of forms directly from the iPad and secure cloud storage for archiving and file sharing.

Subscription plans are very competitive, also with the option to pause your subscription when the vessel is out of service, archive your data in our secure cloud storage and resume your subscription when the vessel is active again. There is also an option for a single month’s subscription which is an ideal way to trial it for yourself.
The Efficient Sea App is well suited to single or fleet maintenance, providing a solid template for safe and compliant operations both at sea and at berth. It also allows you to grant access to senior crew, owners and other stakeholders to access archived documents and information.
When it comes to making onerous tasks easier, the Efficient Sea App has no peer. Simply download from Apple’s App Store, select the forms and documents you require, and choose your subscription period. Done.
