Dunya Yachts, the eminent Turkish yacht builder responsible for the creation of the 73m Axioma (formerly Red Square), has announced the appointment of Jeremy Roche as Sales and Marketing Director. He joins the firm as Axioma makes her first appearance at the Monaco Yacht Show for four years.
Jeremy’s career spans more than two decades in yachting and includes seven years working as crew aboard various yachts before joining Boat International in 2002, where he remained for 13 years. He is widely known to the superyacht community, has a remarkable knowledge of the industry and, most recently, worked in a similar position for an Italian yacht builder.
“I am delighted that Jeremy has joined our team,” said Sedat Ergun, President of Dunya Yachts. “He brings a wealth of experience, strong relationships across the industry and has a great reputation in the brokerage world. We have a number of ideas for the future growth of the shipyard and we believe Jeremy’s experience will be invaluable.”
Jeremy added: “The first time I visited Axioma I was blown away: she is a truly spectacular piece of craftsmanship and rightly acknowledged as the finest quality yacht ever built in Turkey. When Sedat explained his ideas for the future, and his commitment to producing yachts of the same quality, I had no hesitation. I am thrilled to have joined such a prestigious and established shipyard and look forward to releasing more information about our future plans in due course. With Axioma on display at the Monaco show for the first time since she was sold in 2014, I am hitting the ground running.”
Dunya Yachts’ Axioma may be viewed by appointment only at berth C05 of the Monaco Yacht Show.
