What’s it like working as a Ship Master?
As the Master of a oceangoing ship, you have the ultimate responsibility not only for the safety and security of your ship, but also of its passengers, crew and the cargo. As the ship owner’s representative and effectively the vessel’s general manager, the Master’s purpose cannot be understated.
It’s a demanding role, usually requiring 24-week stretches onboard the ship, during which time the Master is on call 24 hours per day, 7 days per week, Sundays and holidays.
To counter such an intense work load, paid rest periods are usually in the region of 12 weeks between sea voyages, however, this varies widely from company to company, based on contract.
