Corporate Membership

The Honourable Company of Master Mariners, welcomes applications from corporate organisations within the Martime sector.

Any corporation, partnership or organisation, the business of which is ownership or management of sea-going vessels or has manufacturing, scientific or management abilities or knowledge in marine equipment, construction or maintenance of ships, the handling of marine insurance and safety or the practice of marine law, shipbroking, personnel or other marine associated services, may apply for Corporate Membership. Applications for Corporate Membership may be made by any company or organisation meeting these criteria. Applications, as will all other forms of membership, are then put before The Court for approval.

The current subscription for Corporate Members is £1,000.00 per annum.

The Members of the Livery enjoy the superb facilities of many Livery locations across the City of London and our outport locations. These are also available to Corporate members who are encouraged to play a full part in the Company’s networking, business and social activities and to make use of the company to support their own corporate requirements.

Corporate Membership Benefits:

In addition to supporting the Honourable Company in its activities, the Corporate Member’s nonimated representative (confirmed point of contact) receives a number of specific benefits:

  • the Company’s journals, newsletters and diary;
  • entitlement for the designated representative (plus two designated colleagues) and their personal guests to attend all social and professional functions at Members’ rates;
  • the right to display the Company's Corporate Membership Certificate;
  • for Corporate Members whose principal business is the ownership or management of seagoing vessels, the right to nominate individuals for apprenticeship to Master Mariners, in accordance with the Company’s Bye-laws.

Corporate Members are invited to provide a short paragraph about their company and, if they wish, a related photograph (usually of a ship) for inclusion in the Honourable Company’s website. From time to time Corporate Members will be “featured” in the Company Journal. When this occurs we will ask for suitable copy.
