Danica Crewing Specialists is pleased to reveal the results of our 2023 Seafarers’ Survey.
This is the fourth time Danica has conducted our Seafarers’ Survey (we didn’t undertake one in 2022) so we are able to compare our 2023 results with previous years.
Seafarers responding to this year’s 45-question survey, which was open to all applicants as well as Danica employed crew, encompassed all age groups, ranks, and many nationalities. Almost half (45%) of respondents occupied senior ranks particularly Masters, Chief Officers and Chief Engineers. Crew worked on the majority of vessel types, including passenger ferries and the offshore sector, with 30% of respondents serving on bulk carriers. The average age of respondents was between 30-55 years.
Danica CEO Henrik Jensen commented: “Our survey revealed some interesting and surprising results which we hope will help our owners to enhance their marine crewing and HR strategies. We don’t claim this survey is representative of the whole industry or scientifically accurate but we do believe it gives a good snapshot of the seafarers’ situation in 2023.”
