Van Oossanen starts Fluid Dynamics sales agency in Italy


Dutch company Van Oossanen has announced they will be expanding their activities for hydrodynamic hull and appendage optimisation into Italy. The new sales office will be located near Bologna, and will open its doors in September 2015.

Michele Ansaloni has been announced as the new sales agent, who has plenty of experience in the yachting industry from working as a DNA engineer in Italian yacht design. He comments, “I was a member of the technical staff of some of the most renowned yachting design firms such as Victory and Nauta and I provided engineered structural parts to renowned superyacht shipyards like CNP, Benetti and ISA. I also worked as a skilled surveyor of pleasure boats for the Italian Naval Register and independently developed an innovative 45 metre ‘green’ motorsailer yacht. For Van Oossanen, my first priority will be offering the broad spectrum of hydrodynamic optimisation services to Italian yacht owner designers and builders.”

Van Oossanen has commented that, starting with this new operating base, Van Oossanen Fluid Dynamics is expanding its optimisation services to be easy accessible for yacht designers, yards and owners in Italy and the Mediterranean area.
