At the core of Crewtoo is a social networking site which allows them to find and chat to other members, post comments and updates from sea, share opinions, and keep up to date with maritime news.
Users can also sign up for weekly profile and site activity summaries delivered by e-mail to their ship and can now use the site to form their own groups, complete with their own discussion board.
Additionally, a newly launched daily news service allows them to read news updates relevant to them as working seafarers. Non-members have access to the same maritime news.
Managing director Mark Woodhead said: “We believe that the maritime industry should be open, accessible and easy to research, so we made the decision to keep the news site open for general viewing access.”
Operated by Headland Media, Crewtoo recently reached a membership of 40,000 seafarers.
