Oceanco to Sponsor World Superyacht Awards 2009

Boat International Media are pleased to announce a partnership with Oceanco on the occasion of the fourth annual World Superyacht Awards.

Oceanco are the latest signing in an impressive list of partners and associates for the World Superyacht Awards 2009 and join us as a Silver Sponsor of this prestigious event at London’s Guildhall on Saturday 16th May.

Based in Alblasserdam, The Netherlands and in Monaco and with its fine tradition of yacht building, Oceanco has carved out a niche for itself in the 80m (262ft) plus custom sector, where quality of build and attention to detail are uncompromising phases.

Three short years after the start in 2005 of the Y700 coded yachts, Oceanco has solidified its name within the superyacht industry as the premium builder of 80-90m super yachts by launching four of the world’s finest luxury yachts: “AMEVI” 80m (262.47ft), the 82m (269.03ft) “ALFA NERO”, the 75.50m (247.70ft) “ANASTASIA” and the just delivered 85.5m (280.1ft) VIBRANT CURIOSITY – all four delivered to enormous world wide acclaim.

A further four new Y700 coded 85m (280ft) megayachts are under various completion stages until 2012.

Oceanco is delighted to collaborate with Boat International Media and is especially pleased to be able to participate in honoring their colleagues and some of the most spectacular yachts delivered over the last year.

Mr Eel Kant, Managing Director of Oceanco who will attend the gala evening and will be presenting the Neptune for the Best Sailing Yacht 30 to 45m Award commented:

“Oceanco is honored to be a part of the World Superyacht Awards – the leading industry event where yachting professionals, naval architects and yacht designers are recognized for their talent and skill in creating some of the most spectacular yachts in the world. As a yacht building company, we are pleased to support and foster merit amongst the new built sailing yachts of 2008.”
