Oceanco Showcase 2021
Last summer, 2020, was a nonstarter for most of the world. The pandemic and everything related to it brought summer fun to a virtual halt. This year, while we are not at full speed yet, we can see the light at the end of the tunnel.
At Oceanco, we have done everything possible to maintain a productive and secure work environment and to keep moving forward with all of our projects in build. We take our commitments to our clients very seriously as well as our obligations to our staff and all of our employees. Health and safety concerns have been on top of our list. While those who can, are still working remotely, we are now beginning a hybrid situation, whereby some people do come to work in our offices a few days a week with Covid protocols in place. We are making pronounced progress on all fronts and are cautiously optimistic.
On a lighter note, in this edition of the Oceanco Showcase we offer a mixed bag of features and stories. We are revealing the extraordinary new design concept Kairos that we are developing with Pininfarina. We also talk about hydrogen and renewable fuels as well as Oceanco’s various sustainable initiatives. We have a report on Marina d’Arechi on the Amalfi coast. We have a synopsis from Captain Gerhard on sailing yacht AQuiJO’s world trip. And as one of his favorite places was Patagonia, we also included a brief on the joys of Patagonia. We offer a fun profile on Steve Wilkinson, DreAMBoat’s talented chef —DreAMBoat is the third Oceanco he has worked on! We also caught up with Brittany Cunningham, chief stewardess, aboard DreAMBoat as well, and discovered what a day in her life looks like when guests
are on board.
As we slowly creep out of our Covid bubbles and venture outside our home territories, we will continue to be mindful. Still, I am sure you, like me, are looking forward to visiting once again with friends and family and spending time on the water!
