The Antalya-based yacht builder, Sunrise Yachts, announces the appointment of Fabien Roché as Chief Operating Officer.
Fabien started his 'career' at sea at the tender age of three, living on the family sailboat and taking correspondence courses to go through his schooling. The world's oceans soon became his playground: from the Mediterranean to the Atlantic and the Caribbean Sea all before the age of ten. Upon completing his A-levels in the U.K., Fabien passed his first Commercial Maritime license in 1987, followed by a higher captain’s certificate and thence skippered his first charter yacht aged 19.
Guillaume Roché, Sunrise Yachts’ CEO, says: 'Bringing in a person of Capt. Fabien Roché’s calibre is a great addition to a shipyard that prides itself in having some of its key management with sea experience. Capt. Roché’s long past in skippering and managing cruise ships and megayachts will be an important asset to our company that will immediately benefit our clients’ projects.'
