Welcome to the London Chapter of the Propeller Club of the United States

Established in 1936, the Port of London Chapter of the Propeller Club is a focal point for those interested in the enhancement and well-being of all sectors of the maritime industry, including the welfare of the world’s seafarers. The club is part of a network of similar clubs around the world with a total membership estimated at over 13,000.

Our membership here in London is a rich collection of professionals from all maritime sectors; from merchant, military and coastguard seafarers to ship brokers, maritime lawyers, salvors and recruiters and many other trades. With such a diverse group of professionals, our club is a source of great experience and knowledge; if you have a question about the maritime industry or environment, I can guarantee we have someone who will know the answer!

We have regular lunch meetings at the Naval Club in Mayfair, where we enjoy a convivial social gathering, whilst being educated and/or entertained by a variety of distinguished guest speakers who each bring their own expertise across a broad spectrum of maritime and other related subjects. Why not take a look at some of our meeting reports to see the variety of speakers and their topics.

Our membership also participates in other special events that keep us close to the maritime industry, such as this year’s London International Shipping Week where we hope to play a role in bringing together an even larger gathering of those who share our maritime interests.
