It all started

More than 50 years ago

From 1966

Virgilio Suárez Almeida, multisectoral businessman, former Korean consul and forerunner of the Red Cross of the Sea founded, in the second half of the 1960s, what would be one of the first, if not the first, Nautical Tourism company ( Marítima Insular), to which it contributed 2 motor catamarans (Felusi and Felusi I) and a monohull (El Dorado), all 3, manufactured in Finnish shipyards, and which it devoted entirely to deep-sea fishing activity for more than 12 years.


In front of it, your friend and partner in other activities
business, Horst Scherschinski.


Years later, he promoted the manufacture of small fiberglass boats in Gran Canaria, together with Paul Erland, better known at that time as “Paul the American” and who had mastered the technique of manufacturing fiberglass in mold. .


Travel agencies, hotels, food industries, promoters, discretionary transport companies, etc., are part, -some of them still active and in the hands of their heirs-, of the history of this great businessman.

And the saga continues

Virgilio Suárez Gómez de Salazar, Virgilio Suárez Almeida's grandson, once he finished his studies, as a Senior Technician in Maritime Transport and Deep Sea Fishing, together with his father, Virgilio Suárez García, decide to give continuity to that reality that was Marítima Insular in the 1960s and applying new technologies and with them, new forms of commercialization, they burst onto the market with the commercial name of Ocean Charter Club.

 

In a few years, the fleet is expanded by more than 40 boats, only in the Canary Islands, in turn extending the activity to practically most of the main destinations in the Mediterranean, from the Balearic Islands to Turkey.

They incorporate boats of all kinds, from yachts, sailboats and catamarans, with and without crew, to megayachts and gulets up to 50 meters in length

They are specialized only in the private charter
