  About Us is your free gateway to the maritime markets and to the great maritime community. 

My name is Mr Elios Patronikolas,  I worked in the maritime industry for quite a while before retiring and founding this website with a friend. We decided to set up this website for the benefit of the maritime community and to offer for the first time a proper free website that will connect the various actors of the great maritime community. We worked hard to deliver you this website, below are some explanation about it.

 Rule #4 Keep it simple  

If you want to look at something on, just point and click. No log in, no password, no forms to fill out and NO POP UP ADS. We want to keep it simple because nobody likes being driven crazy trying to view an ad. Our goal is to get an ad for every maritime items or services that is listed onto the website so that buyers will only have to go one place to see if a vessel like they want is for sale. Our way of doing this is to make it free for the seller to place his ad and simple for the buyer to search for any maritime items and services wanted. And you won't find any stale ads. If an ad is on for more than 120 days it is because the seller has renewed the ad.

You can put as much of a description in your ad as you like, but the concept of the site is like a classified ad in a newspaper. To give the buyer enough information so that if they are interested, they will click on your e-mail address, or call you, and request more information. You can put as much information as you want in there, but the original idea was like a classified ad.

If you are having a crisis and just can't seem to get your ad or photos in, you can fax your ads to Olympic Vessels (see contact us section) and we will add it for you.   

If you find it too tough to post the listing yourself for whatever reason, you can send your information and photos with a check for 20Euros (or equivalent currency):
