StarOcean was first established in 2012 (under a different name) to provide world-class crew management services to its Principals and Seafarers. Under the new name StarOcean Manning Philippines, Inc., the company began operations in 2016 in new modern offices, with the mission to source highly-skilled Philippine crew to a diversified fleet of dry bulk, tanker and container vessels. As of today, StarOcean has a crew pool of over 3,500 competent seafarers and provides crew management services to over 100 bulk carriers, tankers and containers. Our office team constantly strives to build on acquired knowledge and capabilities, thus allowing StarOcean to provide a seamless service to its Principals.

We are dedicated to offer reliable and efficient services of maximum flexibility so that they suit our clients’ individual requirements. We are constantly seeking to surpass the expectations of our clients by ensuring high standards of excellence and bringing real value to their business.
Our associates have both the requisite technical and practical knowledge, and wide experience, attributes required and, at the same time, ensuring effective crew management.
Apart from working with leading ship owning companies, StarOcean is dedicated to recruiting, selecting, training and developing seafarers, and fostering positive crew relations. We believe in specialized / designed trainings; hence we provide customized trainings consistent with our Principals delivered by a dedicated training department in our in-house training and CBT rooms.
We currently operate a fleet of approximately 114 (dry and wet) vessels.
