Crew Testimonials

I started my first contract with C.F. Sharp on Aug. 2, 2001 and joined a tanker ship and was promoted to A/B on my second contract then eventually to a P/Man.

Up to this day and the past 14 years working in C.F. Sharp, I am grateful for the opportunity the company has given me despite my lack of experience on my first contract. They gave me a good salary to support my family’s needs. The working environment was great. From the managers to the staff, their dedication to service were unquestionable!
