What we believe

DÖHLE SEAFRONT CREWING (MANILA), INC. is a licensed manning agency established on March 20, 2009. From a humble beginning of only 7 vessels and 10 office employees, the next few years of the company were characterized by continuous growth in the number of vessels manned – which has resulted to 60 vessels by the end of 2013.

In 2014, Dohle Seafront reached a milestone in its operations commencing with providing services to 2 external clients outside of the Dohle Group. In 2015, Ernest Russ Consulting GmBH was added to the external clients it is servicing.

2015 was a very significant and momentous year as all companies under the Dohle Group consolidated all their manning activities in the Philippines to Dohle Seafront (Manila).

Today, we man around 260 vessels, of various categories, with approximately 2,800 seafarers on board.
