It was in the year 1976 that my dear friend, the late Mr. Gökçen Seven, and I incorporated SANMAR.
Since then it has developed and continuously been creating value.

The enthusiasm of that very first day has been maintained, and with product and service quality being the primary aim, its competitive power around the  world has grown significantly with extensive penetration of export markets.

Throughout the years, we have accomplished world-class projects in the field of tug-boat building and also aspired to reach the highest standards in the fields of Towage and Pilotage Services. In our two shipyards, which we acquired and custom-built in 2011 and 2015, Sanmar produces excellence using the years of experience in a more dynamic way and with a more corporate approach,utilizing state-of-the-art technologies and innovation. Thanks to our new organization, we are taking steps to fully develop our quality in Health, Safety and Environment issues with the intention of being a role model in the sector. Our intention is to achieve these objectives as soon as possible.

At our newest yard in Altınova, Yalova, on the opposite side of Izmit Bay, we will be able to add AHTSs, PSVs and offshore construction vessels to its available range of new builds.
I hereby extend my thanks to all our customers, employees, and suppliers for their contribution upon deciding to work with us towards our aims.
