Welcome Wednesday!

When the Amver bulletin started in the 1950s there was a section that included the names and call signs of vessels that were newly enrolled. We are proud to carry on that tradition each week with list of ships enrolled. You can join in this long tradition and enroll your ship today.

Welcome Wednesday!

What's a number? To us it represents hope. The number of ships that join Amver each week mean one more person may end up saved at sea. It means the crew of a fishing vessel could get saved or a pilot ditching an aircraft at sea may get rescued. You, the seafarer, make Amver work. Thank you for continuing to support the Amver program after more than 62 years!

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.
