AMIT KUMAR,

FOUNDER. CEO, EDITOR-IN-CHIEF

 India

Sea And Coast is the realisation of collective dreams. In 2016, Amit Kumar, an eminent professional from the maritime fraternity, set out to pool together resources, expertise, rich and varied maritime experience to establish a media and publishing house. It is a humble endeavour to pay gratitude to the unsung marine community and the shipping industry worldwide. A media house catering to shipping industry, marine community and oil & natural gas industry was a long felt need in India. Today's seafarer must be informed and entertained in an increasingly complex and commercial shipping environment.

What gives Sea And Coast a decided edge over other media houses is high proficiency in English, exclusive coverage of policy makers and bringing the industry and the policy makers under one platform.

We encourage everyone, including readers, to report any concern they may have about the matters concerning safety or policy in order to continuously improve the editorial standards as well as the visibility.
