Please find below a compilation of ferries,
cruise ships, fast ferries and other significant ships in the
vicinity of Piraeus categorised according to location.

The list incorporates all such ships that are not in regular service
and their whereabouts/status are not reported in the usual
ferry/cruise sailing schedules and/or port authority websites.
Next to the name of the ship, some short comments indicate
its status. Most recent changes are marked in green colour
and appear so for a number of days. For example, if a ship
sails her departure will be shown in green for a few days
and then she will be deleted.

Updating is done almost in real-time and to the best of knowledge
and ability of various members of this forum and the undersigned.
Note that updates concerning Eleusis and Lavrion due to the distance
from Piraeus are more far between. Enjoy reading!
