About us

CF Sharp is a specialist provider of crew and crew services to the international cruise sector and shipping industry. We supply thousands of crew members around the globe to work with quality ship operators and develop close working relationships with our Principals.

Our company history dates back to 1937 when CF Sharp Shipping Agencies opened its first port agency office in the Philippines. Growth led to the establishing of offices in Singapore, Malaysia, Japan, Hong Kong, Taiwan and soon the name CF Sharp became synonymous with providing reliable quality shipping services in the Far East.

We began supplying Filipino seafarers to oil major tanker owners in the 1960s and since then our crew supply has expanded significantly. Today we are a leading supplier of seafarers to a range of ships as well as providing hospitality crew to cruise ships across the globe.

Formed following a senior management buy-out in 2002, Singapore-based Sharp Crewing Services is well-established in this niche sector of the shipping industry where we provide a discerning level of quality crewing services.
