In 2017, the Irish Institute of Master Mariners membership consists of over 120 Irish and Irish based professional seafarers spanning all ranks from cadet trainees through to experienced Master Mariners. Our members work in a diverse array of seagoing and shore roles all over the World from seagoing positions on ships of every conceivable size, form and funtion to shore jobs in ports, shipping companies, brokerage, insurance, safety, law, regulation, research and beyond.


Our membership is made up of men and women who notwithstanding the diverse array of jobs they have, all share three things in common; they are high-calibre maritime professionals, they are a close-knit professional community enabled by their IIMM membership and they would all like you to join them as a new member so that you can also benefit from the IIMM network and through your membership further strengthen it.
