Βιάσου / Γρήγορα


Explanation:
Ανέβα / Μπες στο πλοίο. Γρήγορα!


πλοίο = boat

Βιάσου = the imperative form of the verb βιάζομαι = to hurry. However, you can also use "Γρήγορα", literally: Quick! It's used equally much and sounds more natural.

Ανέβα = Get on
Μπες = Get in
You can use them interchangeably, but since you have Get in here, you would probably use "Μπες".

στο = σε+το = in + the (preposition + article)

Hope this helps

Explanation:
If you can't see Greek fonts, if using Internet Explorer go to View -> Encoding -> Greek (Windows) or Greek (ISO).
In case you still can't see them, I am writing the sentence phonetically:
"Bes sto plio. Grigora!/Viasou" = Get in the boat. Quick!/Hurry up
OR
"Aneva sto plio. Grigora!/Viasou" = Get on the boat. Quick!/Hurry up
