Welcome to Ocean Assistance

Ten years in the super yacht industry has provided me with experience in event management, team logistics
and communications ( including online and social media ) across many high-profile events, regattas & races including:

The Super Yacht Cup Palma  |  St Barths Bucket |  Loro Piana Regatta
Volvo Ocean Race |  Rolex Maxi Worlds |  Voiles St Tropez

Working with race teams, corporate clients and industry partners, I assist in all aspects of organisation and project management of super yacht events and any logistics relating to race team participation in regattas.

I would highly recommend Marianne to any team or company, as she has a very clear understanding of owners’ requirements and team’s atmosphere. I feel she would suit any team due to her easy going personality and her work ethic

Marianne has been a valuable member of the Superyacht Cup team for several years, she has a very professional approach, excellent organizational skills and works well under pressure. Marianne works with great enthusiasm and energy and her willingness to find optimal solutions is a great asset in the often unpredictable world of event management. She is responsible, hard working and I would highly recommend her to anyone looking for a highly efficient project coordinator or event manager.
