In their seemingly never ending quest to open offices in every major superyacht centre of the world Ocean Independence have added West Coast Marine Yacht Services Pvt. Ltd (WCMYS) in Mumbai, India, to their network of worldwide offices.
Run by the husband and wife team Aashim & Bharati Mongia, WCMYS is a fully integrated marine company that manages the largest number of pleasure crafts in India and has been handling visiting superyachts since 2000. Bharati has been handling the charter division for several years now, from customised itineraries for superyachts to hourly charters of smaller craft.
Aashim, a keen yachtsman with several World Championship and Asian Games medals to his name, turned his passion for the water into a profession in 1994. The Government of India has recognized him with several awards including the Arjuna Award, Shivaji Chattrapati Award and Yachtsman of the Year.
The Mumbai team already delivers exceptional yachting experiences to the Indian market and with the expected continued growth of the country’s economy in the coming years India is a strategic market for yachting development.
