(1933 – 1990)
Vladimir Limanov connected his life with the sea and vessels in 1951, when he entered the vessel-mechanical faculty of the Vladivostok Higher Naval School of the USSR Ministry of the Navy. In 1957, he began working as a mechanic on modern vessels of the Sakhalin Shipping Company, and in the summer of 1961 he was invited to work in the inspection of the USSR Register of the Pacific Basin, where the Soviet marine fleet in the 1960s grew at a record pace, receiving an average of 5-6 new vessels per month.
Limanov conducted technical supervision over the repair, construction and re-equipment of crew vessels in Japan, Hong Kong and Singapore.
Vladimir Limanov headed the inspection of the USSR Register in Czechoslovakia for four years, after which he returned to Vladivostok and returned to work in his Pacific division as chief engineer and inspector. The work of Limanov and his colleagues yielded tangible results: from 1970 to 1987, the number of wrecks of Soviet vessels supervised by the USSR Register decreased up to 450%.
At the end of 1988
The USSR Register service sent Limanov on a long business trip to Spain to conduct technical supervision of the construction of timber carriers intended for the Far Eastern Shipping Company. It was assumed that Vladimir Yakovlevich would stay in this country for a year, but three months later he fell seriously ill. He had to return home early to Vladivostok, where he died on April 15, 1990, before his 57th birthday.
