is adventurous at the heart and loves going places
then merchant navy is the ideal place
for you to make a career,
as it gives you a scope to expand

The Merchant Navy is a non-combatant commercial fleet,
which deals with transporting cargo and occasionally,
passengers, by sea.
Its fleet is therefore composed of passenger vessels,
cargo liners, tankers, carriers,
as well as other special types of vehicles.
Above all this, the excellent pay
and promising promotional opportunities
make the career lucrative and exciting in spite
of all the hard work life
and long absence from family and home.
In Merchant Navy, major tasks performed
are in three basic areas of a ship.
The Deck, the Engine and the Saloon Department.

chief officer, second officer, third officer
and other junior officers.
