AMO jobs maintained as M/V Marstan is re-flagged for Mediterranean run
The M/V Marstan, a container feeder ship, has entered service under U.S. registry and will operate in the Mediterranean in a run similar to that previously served by the APL Balboa. Osprey Ship Management Inc. is operating the Marstan, which is manned in all licensed positions by American Maritime Officers.
"The Marstan is a welcome addition to the U.S.-flag fleet and the AMO job base," said AMO National President Tom Bethel. "We're extremely pleased with the opportunity for the AMO membership to continue work in this important trade."
The Marstan is expected to operate primarily between Turkey and Egypt and will carry a mix of government and commercial cargo.
