Our market research shows the largest database of seafarers internationally of 65,000 represents less than 4.5% of the entire seafaring community of 1.2 million. This research shows the potential for Seafarers CV to grow within the placement industry. Our current monthly signup rate of seafarers will exceed 4.5% in less than 2 years. It is our goal to become the largest database of seafarers internationally and with adequate investment strongly believe we will exceed this less than 18 months.
