    • 40ft Jeanneau 40 customized
    • Greece
    • Checked in 7 hours ago



I am looking for 1 non smoking and cat loving experienced crew member.

I need a sailor who is able to stand alone in night watches and sail and navigate the boat effectively and safely, only with the help of a head torch and the boat's autopilot, in moderate to rough seas so that I will be able to take a little rest for a couple of hours before I replace him on the helm.

Unfortunately there is not enough place for passengers or trainees in this boat. Only capable sailors 3 in total.

Also people who will be good sailing buddies for good sailing company. I want to share the day and exchange our stories, experiences, skills, tricks, cooking recipes, technical knowledge and excitement for the sea.

I want to teach and I want to be taught.

Noory the cat is on board.

Contribution 20 Euros/day with food, fuel, marinas, repairs, etc.

Great journey with captain Stamatis


My experience of traveling with Stam turned out to be surprisingly pleasant, comfortable and informative. We spent 3 weeks traveling in the Cyclades islands. Stamatis is a friendly, intelligent and educated man. In addition, he is a real gentleman and has a great sense of humor. He has an unusually rich experience in yachting and "golden hands", so he independently repairs the boat, manages sails, thinks over the route and navigation depending on the weather. The yacht is equipped at a high level, there is all stuff for a comfortable life and safe sailing. If you are interested in sailing, then you will undoubtedly gain a lot of useful information in communicating with Stamatis. His advices and experience were extremely informative for me. In addition, we talked a lot on other diverse topics and found a lot in common in our thoughts and mentality. Also on board there is a beautiful lady - the cat Nuri. She is very affectionate, friendly and has a good character. And during the trip, there was always musical accompaniment with a selection of classical music, rock and jazz. I think I was incredibly lucky to meet Stamatis and join him in this travelling.

Captain Stam and The Mare Nostrum


Captain Stam has basically customized his vessel from stem to stern, and it is the most well equipped cruising vessel I’ve ever been aboard. Also, he’s the most knowledgeable captain I’ve met, with over 20 years of experience sailing, not to mention that he is also a meteorologist and retired Air Force Major. He is knowledgeable about a considerable amount of history and Greek Culture, which he enjoys sharing. If this wasn’t enough, he is courteous, good-humored and a pleasure to be around. (His cat Nuri is incredibly sweet as well!) Any crew who comes about The Mare Nostrum is very fortunate and indeed in very good hands. Thanks Captain, we’ll never forget our journey! -Joyce and Joseph
