Turkey’s leading tugboat operator and shipbuilder Med Marine and Ceyport Tekirdağ Uluslararası Liman İşletmeciliği A.Ş. (Cey Group Company) from Turkey, signed a sales contract for two tugboats and a mooring boat.

Three vessels provided by Med Marine will be used in the operations in Ceyport Tekirdağ Port located in Tekirdağ – Marmara coast of Turkey.
Ms. Melis Üçüncü, Sales Manager from Med Marine, expressed her thoughts about this new collaboration and said, “We are very proud that our vessels are in high demand by operators not only all over the world but also in Turkey. This is the beginning of a new cooperation and I hope we may continue to strengthen our partnership with Cey Group in future. The tugboats’ performances are well-proven as they were operated in Med Marine’s fleet for many years and we believe that they will be a good fit for Cey Groups fleet.”
