Ship Agents

The Chase, Leavitt & Co. Ship Agency was founded in 1854 by Capt. William Leavitt.  Now under the management of the 5th generation of the Leavitt Family, the tradition of having experienced Mariners at the helm of the Ship Agency continues today.  All of our boarding agents are holders of USCG Licenses, have sea-going experience, in depth knowledge of current national and international regulations and can provide you with detailed and accurate information on the ports we cover.  You can be assured that your vessel is being attended by a professional when Chase, Leavitt & Co. is aboard!

Given the extensive maritime background and experience of our Ship Agents, Chase, Leavitt & Co. truely ‘cover’ the waterfront and attend as boarding agents on Tankers, Bulk Carriers, Heavy Lift / Project Cargo, and Cruise Ships.  This broad exposure and the years of interfacing with port and government officials and port service suppliers means that your vessels every need will be attended to in the shortest turnaround time possible.
