This chapter studies the career of Demetrios Moraitis, a successful Greek shipowner who established the Transoceanic Greek Steam Navigation Company, and brought Greek shipping into the passenger shipping business in 1907 by emulating the passenger steamer technology and methodology of European neighbours. The chapter focuses his fundraising tactics, his risk-taking, and the obstacles present in his attempt order to bypass the traditional Greek shipowning business in favour of transatlantic trade, and concludes by asserting that his career had a strong effect on the direction of the Greek shipping industry
