Dr. Yusuf Civelekoğlu, CMI, Partner/ Senior Surveyor

Born to a family of engineers and scientists Yusuf grew up in Istanbul, with a deep affection for the sea. It was in Istanbul that he started to sail dinghies. At sixteen he was apprentice on a commercial ship. Following studies and a career as a scientist in Germany and the United States at some of the most coveted science establishments, he found himself spending his time more and more back on sailing dinghies. Several years of blue water cruising followed and eventually he settled down in Bodrum, in his cutter, and started his own repair company. Shipyard management and profound repair work, briefly interrupted by some extended cruises mark now over twenty years of his life.

In 2003 was approached by an insurance claim manager to assess a claim. Meanwhile many parties close and far have grown to appreciate Yusuf’s hands on the job approach on one side and his knowledge of the bite of the wind and salt on the other. His background, his profound knowledge of yachts together with his ability to structure knowledge into appropriate words in three languages has been appreciated continuously and eventually as of 2012 he shifted into full time survey, averaging and supervision work.

Yusuf is one of the first Certified Marine Investigators (IAMI) in Europe.

Capt. Naci Arıcı, Partner/ Surveyor

Naci was born into a family of shipwrights and seafaring people. At sixteen he ran away from his native Marmaris and joined fishermen in Holland and later oil riggers in Norway. There he got to know the bite of the Ocean. He received his degree as a captain in British Columbia/ Canada and has completed nine ocean crossings. Eventually he returned to Turkey as a sail training instructor. In 2008 he met Yusuf and as of 2009 he has been working full time with him. Naci is, amongst other things, an expert on the Red Sea and with several complex and major survey and salvage work he debuted in the yacht claim’s world.
