From the ancient times, people were using boats in order to transfer their products, fight their enemies and move from place to place exploring the world! But sometimes...during their journey they were doing things against Poseidon’s will, getting him very mad at them. As a result, enormous waves and windstorms were coming up as a challenge for the seafarers! So far, thousands of human lives have been taken in the hands of the powerful Greek god and have been lost in the dark blue waters of the Aegean sea.

The first ship was built by wood. Nowadays steel, aluminium, several alloys and other metals and complex materials have replaced wood. Powerful engines are used instead of sails and oars. And electrical systems are used for defending the lightnings of Jupiter.

But what is the real secret of a well designed ship? How the mechanical and the electrical adequacy can be earned ? What’s this, that gives a vessel the security and the power to conquer the oceans?

The BEST Athenian team, knows the secret....and there is only one way to share it.

Visit the city of the endless amusement and the sunniest weather. Experience the craziest social activities. Discover Akropolis, the flea market, taste the BEST souvlaki and of course, enjoy the amazing waters. Reach the highest point of Athens and discover the area that the battles of the gods took place.

In other words, join the black gang,conquer tidal waves and sail with us!
