Mariners' Alerting and Reporting Scheme (MARS)


Lodestar Marine is proud to announce that we are now sponsors of the ‘Nautical Institute Mariners' Alerting and Reporting Scheme (MARS)’.  The Nautical Institute is a non-governmental organisation who provide a vast database of reports on shipping accidents and incidents assisting in maritime risk reduction Worldwide.  The reports are commonly used by Assureds for training their crew and staff and as loss prevention tool, learning important lessons from other’s mistakes/mishaps and expanding knowledge at all levels.   

The quality and quantity of these reports is a direct result of confidential reporting from anyone engaged in the maritime industry, reporting accidents and incidents that may have given rise to a claim, without the concern of identification or litigation.

A full list of the reports are available to review on the MARS website here:
