As well as being one of the most popular leisure activities at sea, reading helps keep you alert and comforts your emotional wellbeing  - both of which make a positive contribution to onboard safety.  

Through our library service we’re committed to enabling seafarers to get access to quality books —one of the recommendations of the International Labour Convention.


Our supporters include the Mission for Seafarers, Nautilus International and IMO.






We offer bespoke libraries of all shapes and sizes from technical reference books through to low-price paperback fiction.

Our mission is to ensure that seafarers get their hands on the books they want, quickly and cheaply. And we’re equally committed to providing services to lone seafarers as to crews.

To find out how your company can support seafarer wellbeing please get in touch here or call us on 020 7654 7008 

Supporting seafarers is our strength
