Your Crew


The captain of NAMASTE is Artemios Artemakis, also known as Captain Artémis, a pleasant yet assertive character, with over 30 years of sailing experience as part of his pure love for sea activities. His high responsibility and natural talent to work under pressure are two powerful endorsements he gained from his successful career in Mechanical Engineering (University degree). For over the last 10 years, Artémis has been working as a professional skipper in both sailing and motor yachts in the East Mediterranean and the Caribbean (Dominican Republic) and is a RYA/MCA Yachtmaster.
In addition, he has been a divemaster since 1998 holding a PADI & NAUI certificate, with diving experience both in the Greek and the Dominican waters. Artémis is the kind of man who makes you feel assured and relaxed. He is an excellent trainer in both sailing and scuba diving, really dedicated to serving his co-sailors every single day.

Chef Maria, born in 1988, is from Athens, Greece. After graduating in Psychology Counselling in 2012, she went on to study at Le Monde Culinary Institute.

Five Star Experience

This was the most incredible experience! I never imagined this week would be so spectacular. The crew pampered and cared for us - such incredible service! And the food!!!!!! I’ve never eaten so well in my life! The variety, flavours, nutrition all were the best. Every stop was gorgeous - every island different. Thanks to the captain and crew for adjusting our original itinerary to make it an even better experience. Greece is beautiful. We can not wait to return to the Namaste. A five star experience. Thank you so much. All our love, appreciation and thanks! We will come back soon.

Highlight of My Life

To any reading this onboard the Namaste, you know that words can not convey the whole experience. The boat, the crew, the food and the Islands! Those who maybe reading this as a review; this has been a highlight of my life with my husband agreeing. There may be many ships that sail the Greek Islands, but a catamaran with this crew is the way to go. I promise you. And if let the chef do their thing, you will be amazed every meal. The crew and management reading this, the experience you were trying to achieve with your guests was over and above what was expected. Thank you for forever memories.
