OSSA Vision

Promote recognition and significance of Australia’s offshore and specialist ships.


Offshore & Specialist Ships Australia Ltd. (OSSA) was formed in March 2017 when a small group of ex-shipping people became determined to do something to preserve the history of Specialist Ships in Australia.  Initially this involved the Offshore Oil and Gas sector built quickly expanded to cover all Specialist Shipping such as Antarctic, Towage, Scientific, Defence and more. Headquartered in the historic premises of The Mission to Seafarers, Victoria, OSSA has grown considerably due to the energy and passion of members and supportive Corporate members.
