Amver Participating Container Ship Saves Two

The Amver participating container ship Venetiko saved two fishermen from a vessel that sank approximately 154 miles southeast of Puerto Rico on Friday, August 23, 2019.

Search and rescue authorities at rescue coordination center Fort de France notified U.S. Coast Guard authorities in San Juan of a possible overdue vessel with two people aboard. The fishing boat was presumably four days overdue from a voyage departing from Dominica. Rescue personnel in Curacao were also assisting in the search and rescue efforts.

U.S. Coast Guard personnel queried the Amver system and located the 915-foot Amver participating container ship Venetiko which agreed to divert and search for the missing boat. The Liberian flagged ship was able to locate the overdue boat and safety rescued the two fishermen. The two fishermen were disembarked at the Venetiko’s next port call in Columbia.

The Venetiko, managed by Costamare Shipping of Greece, enrolled in Amver on August 19, 2008 and has earned eight Amver participation awards.

Welcome Wednesday!

Each week, for more than 60 years, we have shared the new vessels enrolled in Amver. This week is no different. We do this because we feel it is important to recognize greatness. Not that ships that don't participate in Amver aren't somehow great. Rather, those that elect to participate have taken an extra step, made an extra commitment to safety at sea. You can take that extra step and enroll here. Now help us welcome the latest members of the Amver safety network.
