The Hellenic Yacht Masters’ Club (HYMC) was founded to promote collaboration and networking across senior Masters of the industry for the combined benefit of its members, crew, owners, clients, and industry partners. The Club has a strong core philosophy of collaboration, mutual respect and leading by example in the pursuit of professional excellence.

The founding membership comprises 22 highly experienced superyacht captains, with Captain Dimitris Maroulis of Burgess (above in white shirt) elected as the first President. The HYMC Board is made up of industry professionals with over 100 years of experience between them. Captain Manolis Klimataras (M/Y MARLA) – Vice President, Captain Alexandos Skaris (M/Y OPARI) - Treasurer, Captain Michael Deliezas (M/Y AELIA) – Club Secretary and Captain Nikos Kasidiaris (M/Y KMIKUMAT) - Membership Director.

‘To be a member of the HYMC reflects a desire to preserve a certain ethic, both on land and on the water, and to foster a respect for yachting etiquette and the preservation of our environment.

'The HYMC’s philosophy is based on the need to pass on a heritage of seafaring, inherited from our ancestors, to ensure that our industry continues to grow in excellence based on leading by example and professional respect.’
