February 20th, 2014

Salén Ship Management has joined AECO as Affiliate member.

From  Salén Ship Management’s web-site: “We are a ship management company based in Gothenburg, Sweden. Our mission is to manage small expedition and destination cruise ships at a four star plus standard. We strive to run a hands-on operation and our permanent staff include two master mariners and one chief engineer who share their time between ship and shore. Our team of people has vast experience from shipping, small ship cruising and maritime law. One of the founders is from the Swedish shipping family Salén – hence the name.

Salén Ship Management has the technical and hotel management of the M/S Island Sky and the M/S Caledonian Sky. These excellent destination cruise ships carry 114 passengers and are on long-term charter to Noble Caledonia in London. The M/S Island Sky runs a number of exciting itineraries in the Western Hemisphere. The summers are spent around the British Isles, the Baltic, the Norwegian fjords and the White Sea. During spring and autumn she explores the Mediterranean and the Black Sea. In winter time she ventures to the Caribbean and Central America. In 2015 she will return to the Indian Ocean. The M/S Caledonian Sky operates in the Eastern Hemisphere and covers most of the Pacific Ocean from the Russian Far East and Alaska in the north to New Zealand in the south, from Singapore in the west and Easter Island in the east.

It is the target of Salén Ship Management to run our ships in a way that meets the high expectations of our valued guests. We earmark the best crew available and our ships are always operated in compliance with all applicable national and international rules and regulations.”
