In ancient Athens, citizens living close to the sea and making their living from the sea, as fishermen, sailors or ship builders were called “Parali”, So “Paralos” means the man who lives close to the sea and his job is related to the sea.
“Parali” were in charge of maintaining “Paralos” one of the two warships used by the city of Athens only on state missions or for conveyance of high ranking Athenian statesmen (something like “Air Force One” !).
The boat was of the trireme type, with 170 oars. Only Citizens of Athens could be members of the crew. The boat was kept mostly out of the water, in order to be dry, light and fast. It is estimated that a trireme could maintain a cruising speed of 5-7 knots and reach up to 12-13 knots during battles. Paralos were much faster than the average trireme!
Inspired by this boat and wishing to honour the Parali whose seamanship made Athens the strongest navy force at the time, we carry our name with great respect and pride!
