Marcel Onkenhout, CEO of Oceanco wins the 'International Superyacht Society's Excellence in Innovation Award' 2012.

The award, open to every aspect of the marine industry, is given to an individual or business that has demonstrated innovation in their endeavours within the previous year.

In making the award SSE cited Onkenhout as having been highly original in his team development and business management, taking the company forward with innovative thinking. The ISS acknowledged that, while other successful top yards have had generations of success to lean on, Oceanco, through his steady leadership and creative thinking, is now standing head to head with the industry's longest-established and most respected yards.

In his acceptance speech Onkenhout accepted the award on behalf of the Oceanco team, explainitng that for Oceanco, innovation meant finding better ways to do things and being more creative in design.

This is not the first time Oceanco has been recognized by the ISS. In 2008, Oceanco's 82m Alfa Nero received the award for best power yacht 65m+ and then in 2010, their 85.5m Sunrays received an award in the same category.

The International Superyacht Society (ISS) was founded in 1989 with a mission to build alliances worldwide with regional associations; to serve as communications conduit for issues affecting the marketplace, owners, crew and industry members; and to recognize achievement as well as provide educational opportunities and networking events.
