  • Life at Sea is quiet special and unique in it’s own way!

    Do you remember your early days on-board?

    Learning how to turn on the search lights, colour codes for the bins, operating the window wipers.
    And, what about understanding the watch permutations, the inert gas system, as well as learning how to let go of an anchor?

    At the time when we started our Merchant Navy careers, all that was fun, exciting and it seemed like a career with travel, variety and early responsibility at its best.

    Moreover, the feeling that Seafarers are the engine that drives the global maritime sector, made the job even more meaningful. For instance, without us our shops would be empty, our cars kept idle and our lights and heating turned off.

    However, these activities and tasks have kept Seafarers on their toes on a 24 hours cycle. And, clearly, with more stringent maritime regulations coming up each year, life as a seafarer has become increasingly more hectic and challenging.

    So, it is worth noting, why Seafarers quit Sea Jobs in an article by Marine Insight below:


    Does this situation in today’s world call for an opportunity?
    An opportunity, which helps in settling some of these issues by offering an environment, where Seafarers can relax with their families when at home, leave their families in a safe environment with modern facilities when leaving to sign-on on a ship and socialize amongst like-minded Seafarers and their families, reducing the unsettled life quotient in their lives.

    If your answer is Yes, then MGM Infratech, managed by Master Mariners offers one such life time opportunity, Oceanica.

    Oceanica, exclusively for Seafarers is a Luxury Housing Project with facilities of highest order. It is strategically located in DDA L Zone in Delhi, which is minutes away from IGI Airport, Gurgaon Business District and Dwarka sub-city.

    Idea is to keep life safe and simple in terms of logistics yet, experience a high quality life whilst playing a game of tennis with fellow mariners or watching your kids learn swimming or enjoying drinks with your friends and family in the Club House at Oceanica itself. At the same time being well connected to important facilities like new upcoming AIIMS Hospital (10 mins away), Golf Course (5 mins away), Dwarka Sec 21 Metro Station (10 mins away) and upcoming IP University (10 mins away).
