Salén Ship Management is a ship management company based in Gothenburg, Sweden. Our mission is to manage small expedition and destination cruise ships at a four star plus standard. We strive to run a hands-on operation and our permanent staff include two master mariners who share their time between ship and shore. Our team of people has vast experience from shipping, small ship cruising, naval architecture and maritime law. One of the founders is from the Swedish shipping family Salén – hence the name.
Salén Ship Management has the technical and hotel management of the M/S Island Sky and the M/S Caledonian Sky. These excellent destination cruise ships carry 114 passengers and are on long-term charter to Noble Caledonia in London. The M/S Island Sky runs a number of exciting itineraries in the Western Hemisphere. The summers are spent around the British Isles, the Baltic, the Norwegian fjords and the White Sea. During spring and autumn she explores the Mediterranean including the Black Sea. In winter time she ventures to the Atlantic Islands such as Tristan da Cunha and St. Helena, and then up along the South American west-coast, through the Panama-canal and into the Caribbean. The M/S Caledonian Sky, which is a new addition to the fleet will operate in the Eastern Hemisphere from the Russian Far East and Bering Strait in the north to New Zealand in the south, via Japan, Indonesia, Papua New Guinea, South Pacific and Australia.
It is the target of Salén Ship Management to run our ships in a way that meets the high expectations of our valued guests. We earmark the best crew available and our ships are always operated in compliance with all applicable national and international rules and regulations.
