We offer: full vessel agency, pure car carriers, bulk, break bulk, oil tankers, and passenger and military

vessels. Furthermore, we offer Owners’ Protective Agency Services (OPA), as well as high quality

services for bunker, supply or repair calls. Additionally, we can offer competitive fees for arms’ clearance

and the storage of weapons.


The successful handling of both Navy and Passenger vessel calls require unique experience, knowledge of customer requirements and extreme discipline to deliver and support the ship in the most cost efficient way for the principal. NSM has the experience and fully comprehends the sensitivities related to tight schedules and cost efficiencies in every aspect of the operation.

We manage all P&I matters from: stowaways, cargo damage and loss, marine pollution, casualty claims.

Through many years’ of experience and contacts we are corresponding agents for a number of the IG

Clubs and our primary focus is to make every effort to reduce tension in any potential claims case to

save costs, reduce exposure of the club and its member and achieve a clean and cost efficient solution.


We use the latest software accounting packages and understand the need for fast, efficient and accurate FDAs being sent to principals. At the beginning of any agency nomination we also take great care to accurately predict all the relevant costs the principle may occur when we send an initial costing as part of the pro forma DA summary.
