DMS Sailing was founded by the Stamou family who have been sailing the waters of Greece for many years. This background gives us the distinct and special advantage of insight and local knowledge that most charter companies, sometimes cannot offer.
Our yachts have our personal care, are being very well maintained by our team that is at the marina 365 days per year in order to look after even the last detail and are always cleaned by our stuff that is experienced on this area.
We proud ourselves on our customer care, all of our ‘guests’ enunciate the best for the heartly welcome and great service from the moment they arrive until the end of their vacation.
Today DMS Sailing is mainly operated by Maria and Dimitris Stamou, the continuers of their parents’ efforts to provide excellent sailing experience in the Greek islands, together with Eugene Theodoridis who has throughout the years become a member of our sailing family as well.
How the company started:
A flashback from the founder of DMS Sailing Mr. Vasilis Stamou:
Back in 1977 my wife and I started sailing in the Greek islands and we seemed to get along well. But we used to spend the first day of our vacation cleaning the yacht and checking it as the check in process was insufficient. As a result during our holiday we used to spend time in order to search for the water faucet, how different equipment worked (if they did) etc. and imagine that back then mobile phones didn’t exist.
Few years later we started chartering yachts and founded the first company and promised to ourselves that we would provide to our fellow sailing lovers the best possible maintenance and service. I bought the fist yacht that still is part of the fleet today and promised myself to give the charterers a best experience on board.
The first yacht bought by the company was in 2001 and after 13 sailing seasons is still one of the top of the fleet and the most requested one. It is perfectly maintained and with new equipment that is personally chosen every year to satisfy all tastes. People love it and keep coming back for it, and it is always fully booked from the very beginning of the season. Because of the excellent touch if Dimitris that is always supported by the experience that Vasilis has on yacht maintenance after almost 20 years.
In 2003 the company bought the second yacht, and the rest came later after hard work and dedication.
The last few years we have focused on luxury combined with quality, and our Beneteau Oceanis 54 that came with teak deck all around, generator, air conditioning, hydraulic gangway, electric toilets, and many more comforts will satisfy the crews even if it is offered for bareboat use or skippered charters. If you are looking for space and luxury in an affordable price, we are waiting to see you on board at this lovely yacht.
In 2009 we joined forces with Eugene Theodoridis who is also an expert in yacht sales. He has been a friend first before becoming a member of our sailing family.
Maria is the person who will make the best effort to find you a suitable yacht for your needs, and organize all charter details. She is the first and last member of DMS Sailing that you will meet during your chartering procedure and after the end of your sailing vacation in Greece. A few words about Maria. She is at her mid 30’s, married with two children. She has been working on yacht chartering since 2004 and although she studied Food Technology and got her diploma, she loves tourism and chartering much more. She has been sailing since she was young and although she is not using it much, she got her sailing license in 2001.
Dimitris is the one that will check you into the yacht, will guide you during your vacation and the one that you will call, anytime, in case you face any difficulties on the islands or when sailing. A few words about Dimitris: he is at his early 30's, has studied mechanic engineering and has been working on yacht maintenance since 2007. He is married and has a baby son. He has been sailing since he was a young boy and has participated in races with small sailing yachts. As he is ailing licensed he has participated in the transfer of our Beneteau Oceanis 54 from the France shipyard to Greece.
Eugene will also check you into your yacht and will offer you his advice on the sailing area. He can plan with you your itinerary according to your needs. A few words about Eugene: he is at his mid 30’s, has studied accounting and finance at the American college. And he has been working in the yachting industry for more than 10 years now. He is a sales expert and his advice is always valuable to people interested in investing in the yachting industry. He is married and will be a father this summer. He is sailing licensed and during his holiday time you will find him sailing in the Cyclades.
They are the founders of the idea, the people behind, the starters of what today is DMS sailing. It is their passion for sailing and the sea that pushed their children into sailing when they were young. They are the ones who bought the first sailing yacht ‘Corali” back in 2001.
This web page is dedicated to our parents. Vasilis and Efi we want to thank you, for starting this that has become our passion.
