Atlantis Tankers is going commercial

24th October 2013 Istanbul- Armona Denizcilik A/S was founded by Lorenz Weinstabl, 52, who holds a Master’s degree in Engineering and has been in the shipping business for more than 25 years. Lorenz Weinstabl is also the director of Atlantis Tankers, a group of companies, which is owned by German citizens, Marlon and Claudia Weinstabl.

The company possesses a fleet of eight Chemical/Oil IMO2 tankers, categorized as “small tankers”, which operate in the short sea shipping trade. Four of these vessels are eight years old and are within the range of 3500 dwt. The remaining four were built in 2009/2010 and are within the 6400dwt range. All vessels are separately registered companies in Douglas-Isle of Man and sail a Maltese flag.

Armona Denizcilik A/S was founded in 2002 and was engaged in the construction of vessels for Atlantis Tankers up until 2010. After undergoing a business expansion into technical and crewing management in 2009, Armona was able to take over the control of the Atlantis Tankers fleet, from its predecessor, V-Ship. Seeking further experience and increased business opportunities, Armona made an arrangement in 2012 with London-based Borealis Maritime. Armona’s technical management is now additionally in charge of a proportion of their fleet.

IBEX Maritime, the first commercial managers of Atlantis Tankers, were taken over by Uni-Chartering in 2012. The agreement with Uni-Chartering has now been terminated by Atlantis Tankers.

The board of directors of Atlantis Tankers has decided that the commercial management of their fleet will be lead by the Atlantis Tankers Group  as of November 1st, 2013.

Atlantis Tankers & Armona Denizcilik A/S would like to take this opportunity to thank both IBEX Maritime and Uni-Chartering for the many years of cooperation.

Many pictures are taken from vessels, circulated around the globe, but not many come as a present like this one which was sent to us from Yardimci Shipping for Eastern as a gesture to soften the many years of tough cooperation the owners of the two organizations had. On her Voyage 063 Atlantis Armona was carrying 3.000 mts of Benzene from Terneuzen to Aveiro in April and the picture shows her leaving after discharge.

Far beyond this winter the weather has been very challenging on our vessels routes from Baltic down to the Western part of the Mediterranean.

This has caused delays in our voyages and during extremities forced us to take shelter in a safe place. The picture shows our smallest vessel, Atlantis Antalya, on her way to proceed with a cargo of Styrene Monomer to her discharge port of Aliağa in Turkey.

Cadet Apprenticeship
22/11/2012
Our operator Armona Denizcilik was for the 2nd consecutive time invited by the Shipping Faculty of the September 9th University in Izmir to their 17th Winter career “open door” days in which ship-operaters where given the opportunity to present themselves and to answer upcoming junior officer and marine engineers questions in regard to their careers.

The student conference took place on November 22nd and was led by our Crewing manager Özgür Çetinkaya and his assistant Emre Yalçın. Whilst repeatedly the question was raised by female students whether Armona’s policy would foresee employment of female graduates there has been an overwhelming request that Armona offers students a 10 week apprenticeship. In the past two years more than 60% of the apprentices had later started to work as officer on board of vessels operated by Armona which shows that benefit is provided to both sides and so Özgür offered to employ from the September 9 University in 2013 alltogether 7 students, four  Deck and three Engine apprentices.
