MMI Sponsor Inspirational Young Man to Achieve his Dream


When Mike travelled over to Europort he never expected to meet a young man like Jonas. He was so impressed with his enthusiasm and maturity and especially the fact that he had talked the organisers of the event into allowing him to use a vacant stand in order to promote himself. 

Jonas is 15 years old and is raising money to join a three masted tall ship “De Thalassa” for a six month voyage to the Caribbean. You can read more about the voyage here: Mike said “He is seeking corporate sponsors and in return is offering certain benefits but to be honest I simply want to help him reach his goal. Add to this that he is undergoing major surgery on 23rd December with a three month recovery period and still wants to continue his fund raising.”

MMI are very proud to sponsor Jonas and hope we can encourage other companies to do so too. Please take a few minutes to view his website or email him on his website

UK Virtual Tour – November 2020

Last week MMI had the pleasure to take the commercial team from Engine Deck Repair nv (EDR) for a Virtual Tour across the UK.

Big ship operators (containers, OSV, tankers) superintendents and fleet managers listened to Philippe Trouillard (Commercial Manager), Sudhakar Tripathi (Technical Manager) and Stijn Van Doninck (General Manager) make their presentation with great attention and interest.

MMI Sponsor Championship Club, Nottingham Forest

While Nottingham Forest maintain their push for Premiership football, MMI have sponsored BEN WATSON, long serving midfield player. The sponsorship package allows for the away kit of Ben Watson and in return the “Breaking Waves” logo of Marine Marketing International appears in the program and on the scoreboard alongside the players name. Ben, of course, is most remembered for that match winning goal for Wigan Athletic in the FA Cup Final in 2013, before joining Nottingham Forest in February 2018

Nottingham Forest are owned by Greek Shipping magnate EVANGELOS MARINAKIS, making them the obvious choice for MMI’s attention

Meet Alex Cesca

You may already recognise Alex as she covered for Jen during her maternity leave. However due to the growth of enquiries over the last year, we have kept on Italian-speaking Alex to support the sales team in the day to day running of enquiries. Please join us in welcoming Alex as a permanent member of the team.

Can we make your repairs in Turkey and China easier?

You may already know that MMI have worked with a partner in China for over 20 years. Wu Xinyu, based in Shanghai has been the backbone of our constant growth in China. Wu allows MMI to have up to date knowledge of yard performance, offers valuable advice on capabilities and is on hand during the project if required. This then alleviates any communication and logistical issues before they arise streamlining the repair project. In having our partner in China, it means that we are not limited to representing one or two yards in China, but in fact can cover the majority ensuring we can assist with all types of vessels.
This service comes at no additional cost to the customer.

Based on the success of our partnership in China we have now replicated the service in Turkey to serve our customers better. We would like to introduce our new partner Osman Kaya Turan. 

Mr Turan not only has excellent knowledge of how the shipyards are performing, he also maintains strong relationships with the yards to ensure smooth running of projects. When owners submit an enquiry through MMI we will source the best yard for your job and offer our recommendation. MMI will then help your superintendent with hotel and local travel plans leading up to his introduction to the appropriate personnel at the yard.
