NIKOLAOS PSALLIDAS , 40, GREEK
Captain Nikolaos was born October 22, 1975 in Athens, Greece. He is married and speaks fluent English as well as conversational French and Spanish. His love of everything related to the sea led him to the decision to follow his father’s footsteps and joined merchant shipping. He graduated from “Merchant Marine Academy of Athens“ and spent the following 6 years aboard ocean-going container ships first as a 2nd officer and then as a chief officer. His thirst for gaining experience in other types of ships took him aboard high-speed ferries where he spent 2 years in Greek waters. Through out all these years Nikolaos spent many months of his shore leave working as windsurfing and cat-sailing instructor. In 2007 Nikolaos decided to make a major career change and joined the yachting industry. His obsession with sailing made it impossible for him to refuse an offer to command charter S/Y “Callisto“, a 80ft classic Nautor’s Swan. After that there was no looking back. During the following years he gained valuable experience working on planning commercial motor yachts as well as Perini Navi sailing yachts. As of 2011 Nikolaos holds a master’s unlimited license.
During his free time he enjoys practicing wind-surfing, cat-sailing and scuba diving.
