Bas Swanink has been named sales manager at Oceanco, working in tandem with Robert Tan. Swanink has been with the Dutch shipyard as a project manager for eight years, during which time he was a key figure in developing and engineering the industry’s first PYC-compliant yacht ever built, the 91.5m 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 aftersales management. In the span of his career he has project managed and delivered eight custom superyachts from 50m-92m in length.

Swanink, along with Tan, will be representing Oceanco at the major boat shows and yachting events, beginning with the 2015 Monaco Yacht Show in September.
