Iona Shipmanagement Ltd was founded in the Republic of Cyprus in December 2005.
Its offices are based and operate in Limassol, with major shareholder, Brise Bereederungs Gmbh-Co. KG of Hamburg, and two minor shareholders, Janice Vassiliou and Haris Constantinou.
Since its incorporation, IONA has expanded in the shipping world, offering crew-management services to – apart from the Brise Fleet – shipping companies in the UK, Nigeria and Germany.
Managed vessels have included cement carriers, general cargo, container ships and DP vessels.
Under our IONA contracts of employment, we are able to provide all levels of seafarers: from masters, officers – both deck and engine – and all ratings and cadets.
Meanwhile, the Company also has links with manning agencies in the Philippines, Poland, Ukraine, Romania, Sri Lanka, Russia and Estonia. Our clients range from big ship-owning firms to smaller individuals, but our care in managing their vessels is equally distributed.
