Cockett Marine Oil - Shipowners Dinner
03/07/2018
Cockett Marine Oil invited a select group of Turkish and Turkey-Linked Shipowners for dinner @ Del Mare.

Shipowners and Senior Management attended from Atlantis Tankers, Genel Denizcilik, Gungen Denizcilik and YASA Holding.

The evening was a spectacular success. We like to express our utmost gratitude to the hosts Cem, Burcu and Ilker (Illy) for bringing this powerful community together.

No one expected the night to be so entertaining, uniting and long-lasting. 

Omer Gungen (the older brother of Selim) also stopped by for a chat.

Another heartwarming surprise was that at the table next to us a strong elderly man and his wife got up and came over to our table. Ismet Uner (Owner, Founder, and President of GEMAK Group of Companies) and his wife joined our informal gathering.

The shipping world is a small community. Tonight was a stellar example of how much community and family matters.

We thank you all for such a rewarding evening!

Relations Become Traditions
03/05/2018
The friendship between Bureau Veritas Istanbul & Armona Denizcilik is hard to beat.
 
During the construction of our latest newbuildings: Augusta and Alicante, we realized that relations go well-beyond ‘business’. Moreover, our relationship has anchored a tradition of combining the management of Bureau Veritas Istanbul and Armona Denizcilik to celebrate the start and the end of the yearly fish season: simply called Rakı & Balık (Fish).

A substantial part of Armona’s business evolution has been accompanied by the staff of Bureau Veritas (BV) Istanbul. Relations began with the first newbuildings in 2003, lasting over 1.5 decades till today.

Today, we own and manage 12 ships. Our size and attitude as a client to BV Istanbul, has smelted us together as a family.
 
BV Istanbul knows first-hand that our commitment is to high levels of standard, quality and no compromises in safety.

We thank them for their strong cooperation and dedication in all issues of certificate renewals. They tend to happen at breathtaking speeds under and above water.

It was a great evening! Thank you to all staff, present and not present of BV Istanbul. You are part of the success of Armona & Atlantis Tankers.
 
Lastly, the names of the ‘warriors’ who buried over 10 kg of fish, from left to right:
