Ship Superintendent is a term that you must have heard quite frequently if you are into the marine industry. After all, it is the job of a ship superintendent who monitors and manages the repair projects at any shipyard or in dry-docking. They are required to oversee day-to-day operations and are also responsible for hiring personnel. A marine or Technical superintendent encompasses varying job responsibilities and, in this blog, we are going to talk about one such operation that they carry out – Ship sale and purchase.
The responsibilities bestowed upon ship superintendents are tremendous. The job role and work scope of a ship superintendent are quite vast. It is not a job responsibility that encircles only a few basic things but is something that requires absolute alertness and thorough vigilance of a person.
If we are to mention in simple terms, a superintendent is an overseer. It is he who has all the documents specifying the necessary conditioning and repairing required for the ship. A ship superintendent is the one who has to reassure that the repairing and reconstruction of the ship are being carried out properly in the respective shipyard or the dry dock.
While purchasing a new or a second-hand vessel, a seasoned professional must inspect the vessel. To gain a good insight into the ship you are investing in and make a fruitful decision, ship superintendent inspections can be extremely helpful.
Whether the vessel/ship complies with the minimum industry standards or not is checked by the ship superintendent. In addition to that, minimizing the risk of compliance failure is also the job responsibility of the ship superintendent. Whether there is a scope of up-gradation in the vessel or not can be detected easily with their help.
As a supervisor, a ship superintendent is assigned to a particular shipyard where he is provided with the paperwork of the ship that requires immediate attention. Ship sale and purchase consist of varying parameters. It is a ship superintendent who keeps a check on all the parameters and maintains the paperwork so that the asset is seaworthy.
