Message from the Managing Director

Our vision is to re-invent traditional shipping by embracing the timeless values that underlie the relationship and the interdependence between shipping, trading, and the environment.

The sustainability concept, which has become prevalent today, has deep roots in the wisdom of past-century captains / shipowners – and the remarkable methods they used to operate their fleets.

It was their love and attention, as well as the pride they felt for their ships that kept them sailing for over five or six decades.

With our distinct legacy and shipping DNA as cornerstone assets, we have been laying yet stronger foundations so that one day the 6th generation will take over, fully ready and optimally equipped with great knowledge to continue a tradition of shipping excellence.

Environmentally conscious and with a strong passion for excellence, Vantage Shipping has been giving life to a seagoing tradition of over 110 years.
We are active advocates of the vision for a sustainable future that derives from the wisdom of the past.
