A trireme (from Latin triremis, literally "three-oarer") was a type of galley, a Hellenistic-era warship that was used by the ancient maritime civilizations of the Mediterranean, especially the Phoenicians, ancient Greeks and Romans. The trireme derives its name from its three rows of oars on each side, manned with one man per oar. The early trireme was a development of the penteconter, an ancient warship with a single row of 25 oars on each side, and of the bireme (Greek: διήρης), a warship with two banks of oars, probably of Phoenician origin. As a ship it was fast and agile, and became the dominant warship in the Mediterranean from the 7th to the 4th century BC, when they were largely superseded by the larger quadriremes and quinqueremes. Triremes played a vital role in the Persian War...
Somali pirates have attacked a Greek-owned bulk carrier late last week in the Gulf of Aden near Yemen. News emerged on Saturday the vessel was taken off the Yemeni port of Balhaf. [Andrew Mwangura, East African Seafarers' Assistance Programme]: "We believe the ship might be heading to the Somali coast right now but others say maybe she escaped but according to Yemen Coast Guards the ship is still under captivity." However, a Greek spokesman says the ships managers did not confirm the incident. [Andrew Mwangura, East African Seafarers' Assistance Programme]: "We don't know the number of the crew members, the crew size and the nationalities of the crews, and it is not yet known where she was heading to and where she was coming from." Somali pirates continue to defy foreign ...
Corinth Canal From Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia The Corinth Canal (Greek: Διώρυγα της Κορίνθου, Dhioryga tis Korinthou) is a canal that connects the Gulf of Corinth with the Saronic Gulf in the Aegean Sea. It cuts through the narrow Isthmus of Corinth and separates the Peloponnese from the Greek mainland, thus effectively making the former peninsula an island. The builders dug the canal through the Isthmus at sea level; no locks are employed. It is 6.4 kilometres (4 mi) in length and only 21.4 metres (70 ft) wide at its base, making it impassable for most modern ships. It now has little economic importance. The canal was mooted in classical times and an abortive effort was made to build it in the 1st century AD. Construction finally got under way in 1881 but was hampered by geological ...
The Zubr-class is a class of air-cushioned landing craft of Soviet design. This class of military hovercraft is currently, as of 2012, the world's largest hovercraft. There are currently nine ships in active service in the world. The Zubr is used by the Russian, Ukrainian, and Greek navies. The transfer of the Kefalonia (L- 180), the first of two Zubr hovercraft purchased by Greece, to the Hellenic Navy marked the first time that a Russian-made ship was purchased by the navy of a NATO member.It is designed to sealift landing assault units (such as marines or tanks) from equipped/non-equipped vessels to non-equipped shore, as well as transport and plant mines.
Παλιά Ελληνικά Πλοία -- Old Greek Ships Χώρα με τεράστια ναυτική παράδοση η Ελλάδα, με καπετάνιους και πλήρωμα θαλασσαγνώστες πεπειραμένους ναυτικούς, κατείχε μία από τις σπουδαιότερες ναυτιλιακές θέσεις παγκοσμίως. Ο μεγάλος ακτοπλοϊκός επιβατηγός στόλος έπλεε σε στα λιμάνια όλης της χώρας, δεν υπήρχε όμως και λιμάνι στο πλανήτη, όπου κι αν βρισκόσουν, που να μη συναντούσες ένα Ελληνικό πλοίο. * Old Transportation in Greece Part 6th * Τα παλιά μεταφορικά μέσα στην Ελλάδα Μέρος 6ο Music: Zambetas
