Originally set up to construct their own fleet vessels, Armona Denizcilik has now become the Ship Management arm of the Atlantis Tankers group.
Historically, Turkish Shipowners have been used to building ships on their own. While this had various reasons, changing partly over the decades, Armona adopted this philosophy for the benefits of cost saving, better quality control, individual selection of manufacturers and associated technical features and, last but not least, to involve ship management staff in the construction with the subsequent advantages of through-life management and maintenance.
Located along the waters of the Bosphorus the Ship Management team has not only access to one of the world’s biggest airports, but is also only an hour’s drive from the construction and repair shipyards.
