Captain Viktor Mykhaylov

Viktor Mykhaylov

Captain Viktor Mykhaylov, master of the CSCL Uranus has been a part of the V.Ships family for almost 20 years.

The husband and father-of-two from Ukraine began captaining ships in 1991 after first going to sea in 1970.

He said: "I like the pressure and responsibility that comes with being a captain of a ship, particularly a vessel of this size.

"Going to sea is a great job. You get to travel and the role is always changing, whether that's due to changes in legislation or technology.

"The China International Ship Management Company has been created by V.Ships in partnership with the China Shipping Container Lines Co, which the CSCL Uranus is part of.

"V.Ships is a very nice company to work for and is always looking to progress, and their procedures and policies make sure they are one of the industry's key players. I'd recommend anyone to work for the group, as they'll be in safe hands."
