“Richard is the right person to join our team in Phuket. With our support background and expertise in the marine industry we provide unmatched services in assisting owners as we undertake multiple jobs on board, taking the strain away from the captain and crew, in all aspects - from vessel clearances, visas, dockage, provisions, Myanmar permits, land tours, re-fits, medical needs, shipboard assistance and vessel management.” said Fernandes.
