Malaysia shipping giant says it wants to do more to empower female seafarers and create equal opportunities.


Captain Ezmaira Sazzea binti Shaharuzzaman has become the first female captain to work for Malayasian shipping giant, MISC Berhad.

The Kaula Lumpur-based company gave the newly-appointed captain command of the 153,000-cbm LNG carrier Seri Bikasana.

Captain Eezmaira Sazzea is a graduate of the Malaysian Maritime Acedemy and served as a deck officer for the 10 years before taking her master’s certificate.

“I am very grateful and honoured to be the first Malaysian female master mariner in Eaglestar and it will certainly be an exciting journey for me in this new role,” she said.

“I hope that this will inspire my fellow women seafarers, to strive for greater accomplishments as we continue to add value to the global maritime industry.”
