A MESSAGE FROM MAG

Dear Friends;

2020 hit all us hard and unpleasant market didn?t help us to uplift our moods so far, we all need good news, and here goes ours;

Most of you know him already and some of you met him last week with his epic farewell message "Mamba Out", today please join us to welcome and congratulate dear Mr. Okan Tunali to our team as "Partner Of Aqua Chartering" from now on. In an environment getting more brutal and tough we are as strong as our friends and close community surrounding us, we, as two best friends, decided to be stronger together and unite under same name and same roof. It was not an easy decision for him and is not taken over a night -took a year- to leave where he worked for 11 years and he was one of the Share Holders- and today we are proudly welcoming him to the Family! For the ones who know Okan already, I'm sure you already started to say "Wow, good catch!", for the ones you don't know him, I just can say; "Yes! He definetely is!"

From now on, we will be more active in Handy/Supra sizes, especially for Bsea, Med, Red Sea, Baltic and Continent as well with the support of a close IACS fleet.

Our usual business and exclusive/semi-exclusive Charterers/ Accounts will be fixed as the way they used to be, so we are not changing anyones' comfort zone, our service quality is effected only positively and our nr1 priority is always giving the best service as in the past. I will be continue doing what I am already doing with the title - Managing Partner of Aqua Chartering.

I'd like to thank my dear friend and partner for trusting us enough to join the Family- Our goal is the same - Always to remember World is bigger than us - so we stay humble, work harder and stay happy - because Happy is The New Productive!

Can't thank my team enough starting with the one, who has been with me since first day- Nergis ERGUN- my very first junior in life who is a senior already for many years and teaching me in both business and life a lot -as well as the rest of the team- if it wasn't with you, we wouldn't be where we are now kiddo! Salute! Ayberk GURGAN, my brother who has given up from his career as a professional chef in the kitchen and chose to be a member of AQUA and made it his dream as well, considering we are a family and he chose the family business and cooking only for us nowadays:) My dear Junior the 3rd Beyza AKYOL KOPUZOGLU -queen of the details- and 4th Ege GOKHAN- who is an engineer MSc and everybody knows engineers are the best to trust:) Number 5 is our youngest one and baby brother Fuat VAR - definitely doesn't look like a baby with 1.90 m tall! And new juniors are uploading called as "Fresh Blood" ? please check our web site for more information and all contact details of the TEAM!

Proud to say, you are the greatest thing I achieved in my life so far - thank you TEAM AQUA! Let's dream more from now on!

Would like to thank every one of you for the great support during our journey! Wish to have more fixtures, crosspaths and happy days to celebrate with you! God Bless You All!

Warm Regards,

ABOUT AQUA

From Coasters up to Panamax

What we carry?

Basically and simply- Everything! From where to where? Forget the borders, world is all yours.

Would be honest to say that, we have a master degree in Fertilizers due to very long co-operation chance we had by being Eurochem Trading and Eurochem Agro's panel brokers starting even before Aqua and presently Samsung C+T Fertilizer Division's solution partners as well as their Steels division.

Not only clean commodities like grains, soda ash and fertilizers we carry, we also like the dirty side! All kind of coke and coals also our specialty as well as the mines and raw materials. Ask us whatever you want to know, will be pleased to give you our reference accounts.

WHAT WE DO

In 2017 February, when we decided to start our own journey, it took a while to decide what company name would represent us the best. We were a young, dynamic, solution oriented team not believing borders, having principles turned into friends in years from all around the world making us love what we do everyday. That's how Aqua Chartering came up. Something to keep everyone connected to each other in the best possible way would be "Aqua" itself only.

Since day 1, we decided to be a kind of company we always wanted to be a part of, "A bunch of young people working without time limits, trust and relay each other the most and have fun while doing all these!" and it worked pretty well. We define ourselves as a "Boutique Brokering House" serving our principals' in a "Haute Couture" way knowing every company has different needs and solutions- and that's the reason of us being their solution partners. Otherwise it would be a pity just to fix vessels without adding value with our services and offer the standard.

We invite you to forget the standard shipping and experience new generation brokerage services we offer.
