Propeller Club de Paris

The Propeller Club of the United States is a worldwide organisation which was established in New York in 1923 to promote the interests of the Merchant Navy in the wake of the First World War.Today, the Propeller Club of Paris is only one in a vast network of more than 100 affiliated clubs around the world, 28 in Europe alone.All 7,000 or so members of this entity have one thing in common: the desire to champion and promote the Merchant Navy in the broadest sense as well as all its ancillary activities, because international trade relies overwhelmingly on ocean transport and sea trade.

This fact is not well understood, hence the motivation for the efforts of the Propeller Club of Paris over a number of years to challenge misconceptions and to educate, presenting itself as an organisation open to dialogue.

This policy requires us to return to our basic ethos with the organisation of theme-based sessions around monthly lunch-debates, often also in collaboration with other associations pursuing the same objectives and sharing the same targets.
