About The Propeller Club

The idea was conceived in New York, in 1922, by a group of professionals engaged in the merchant marine industry who gathered frequently at luncheons to discuss mutual issues and the future of shipping.

These meetings gradually developed into the Propeller Club of the United States, which aims at the promotion and furtherance of the American merchant marine and international shipping in general, as a symbol of mankind’s efforts to ring for a better world through commerce and industry.

Propeller” refers to the propulsion of ships, and is symbolic of the driving force required to achieve the Club’s objectives. Today there is a Propeller Club in almost every sea and inland port in the United States, as well as in 33 cities throughout the world. The Propeller Club’s world headquarters is located in Fairfax, Virginia.

Propeller Club, Port of Piraeus was founded in 1935 as a non-profit charity Association. The Club cooperates closely with the Union of Greek Shipowners, the International Chamber of Shipping, the Hellenic Short-Sea Shipowners Association, the Hellenic American Chamber etc. to promote Maritime Relations, Commerce, Goodwill and Cultural relations between citizens of Greece, the U.S. and all other countries represented by their members. The net income of the Club is fully distributed with fairness and transparency to charities and scholarships to students, primarily from naval families.
