Seafarer’s Testimonials

I’ve been working for CF Sharp for quite a number of years, the staff has always been very supportive, approachable and seafarer friendly.

In crunch time CF Sharp always comes up with an excellent solution, thus making seafarers task a lot more easier during their time on and off.

Jaime Salinas

Chief Engineer, C.F. Sharp Crew

I started my first contract with C.F. Sharp on Aug. 2, 2001 and joined a tanker ship and was promoted to A/B on my second contract then eventually to a P/Man.

Up to this day and the past 14 years working in C.F. Sharp, I am grateful for the opportunity the company has given me despite my lack of experience on my first contract. They gave me a good salary to support my family’s needs. The working environment was great. From the managers to the staff, their dedication to service were unquestionable!

Pabi Arnulfo Bitas

A/B, C.F. Sharp Crew

I went to Manila with the expectations that I will have a hard time applying for a job as a seaman. It turned out that I made the right decision to go to C.F. Sharp. The recruitment itself was very smooth and easy. That was 6 years ago and I keep on renewing my contract with C.F. Sharp as they have treated me very well all through the years.

I do not see myself working for another company.
