History

The Propeller Club of Geneva was originally created as part of the international network of Propeller Clubs headquartered in the US with sister clubs in the US, Europe and Africa.

The Propeller Club of Geneva was conceived in 1985 as the “International Port Nº183”  representing one of the individual member clubs designated as “Ports” of the United States.

The Club has been active in the Geneva Shipping and Trading community organising events and bringing people together. 

In 2015, the Club organised the 30th anniversary party at the restaurant du Parc des Eaux-Vives

In 2017, it was decided during the General Assembly that the Club would discontinue the US Club membership due to a divergence of views. 

The Propeller Club of Geneva has and will remain to be dedicated to the enhancement and well-being of all interests of the maritime community on a national and international basis. 

The Club is striving to promote and support the shipping industry in Geneva by creating a platform for social contacts in a pleasant environment between professionals active in the shipping and related industries through a varied program of conferences with high level speakers and other events.

Due to the nature of the industry in Geneva, the Propeller Club of Geneva also focuses on International Trade as well as Shipping.
