When in Doubt

Starboard Advisors S.a.r.l. was set up in 2012 as a Marine Consultancy Company with the broader aim of providing specialized Shipmanagement services and of providing the vital link to shipowners with third party managers.

Capt Girish Lele, who is Director of Starboard Advisors Sarl, is a Master Mariner with 22 years of sea service including 9 years in command. He served on various types of vessels but specifically Oil Tankers and OBOs.

Capt Lele completed his degree of M.S in Marine Management from Maine Maritime Academy in 1993. While studying there one of his credits included a diploma in “Shipbroking and Chartering” issued by A.S.B.A.

Capt Lele has a varied experience ashore since 1996 when he stopped sailing actively. He started in the Operations department of International Andromeda Shipping in Monaco. He was instrumental in the implementation of ISM for the company. Due to the success of this he was appointed as Quality Assurance Manager. In this capacity he implemented ISO 9000/14000 and OHSAS 18000 in the company and created an Integrated Management system which was a first for a shipping company in Europe.

While at International Andromeda Shipping he was actively involved in a foray into the offshore sector where he was responsible for setting up a company vessel as an FPSO off the coast of Brazil. He further went on to implement successful projects in Indonesia for FSOs.

Capt Lele joined VShips Monaco in 2004 where he was Project Manager responsible for creating cells for inducting new vessels into Management and was credited with successfully integrating the Omega Navigation fleet of product tankers and the BNavi fleet of bulk carriers.


Capt Lele also spent a year in 2009 as Operations Director in MC Shipping Monaco where he was responsible for the operations of a fleet of over 20 Gas Carriers.


At V.Ships Monaco from 2010 to 2012, as Marine Safety, Quality and Risk Manager Capt Lele was credited with implementing the ISO 14001 standard for the office and for the fleet, something which had eluded previous incumbents of the post.

After leaving V.Ships in 2012 Capt Lele quickly complied with the requirements of becoming a SIRE Inspector and today is an accredited OCIMF SIRE inspector and conducts inspections on behalf of BP, EQUINOR, PREEM,BHPB, ENI and ENEL amongst others.

Starboard Advisors is closely allied with AWP Marine UK to ensure clients are kept updated with latest trends in the maritime industry as well as Chartworld, one of the worlds leading providers of ECDIS.
