Expanding its dominant position in the worldwide superyacht market, the Dutch based yacht builder Oceanco has named Bas Swanink as their new Sales Manager

Swanink will be working in tandem with Robert Tan. He is no stranger to Oceanco; having served as a Project Manager for eight years with the company.

During this time he was a key figure in developing and engineering the industry’s first PYC-compliant yacht ever built, the 91.5-metre Equanimity.

In the process, he and his team worked closely with Lloyds Register, Cayman Islands Shipping Registry and several yachting industry partners.

Prior to his tenure with Oceanco, Swanink was employed in the superyacht industry for nearly 10 years in various management positions: design, project management and after sales management.

In the span of his career he has project managed and delivered eight custom superyachts from 50-meters to 92-meters in length.

He has worked with clients from around the world, including the USA, Middle East, Eastern Europe and Asia. In his new role he will continue to work closely with Clients, Representatives, Captains, Crew and Brokers.

Swanink, who has a degree in Shipbuilding Technology will join Tan representing Oceanco at major boat shows and yachting events beginning with the 2015 Monaco Yacht Show.
