We were sorry to hear about the passing away of our friend Max Remy who died in the night of June 17th 2015 as a fatal result of a long illness. We present our sincere condolences to his family, may these few words bring them some comfort.

Max was a happy person with a huge maritime culture and we had developped a close relationship year after year. He was a specialist of the shipping world and had authored several books on the subject. We will remember all the good times when we shared our common interest. Our book is postumously published in his memory.
