Dear Greek shiplovers,

hope you can identify a mystery ferry I photographed at Dubai in December 29th 2015 named QAFFAY 2. She is most likely a former Greek island ferry -  but with all efforts i could not find out any details of her origin. Any help on the former names and details would be greatly appreciated!

Best regards

Hello Martin

This ferry could be the former TATIANA AGAPITOU.

There are more similarities than differences. There many possibilities to sold there after a coversion. In equasis and other databases appears as TATIANA AGAPITOU II with unknown status.

As I known she stopped from Greek roots in 2004 and there are some reports that she sold in UAE.

Maybe you have solved a big mystery

Thank you

Hallo Polmyt,

thanks for answering my question!!

An interesting idea - TATIANA AGAPITOU is very similar, except for the masts (easy converted), and the windows at the rear of the main deck. Furthermore, QAFFAY 2 seems to have no shoulders on the hull, but has a flush side. This would require some rebuilding which is completely possible as they also added the anchor. 

There was, as I have seen, at least one sister vessel AGAPTIOS A (IMO 6727090) which became RAMADAN IV. Could it also be this vessel? It would have required the same modifications.

Best regards

Martin

Hi everyone. 

I have a small dilemma, I am from Australia currently visiting Greece. It was my hope to sail with Superfast, but ended up with the Hellenic Spirit. I couldn't change my travel date due to prior tour commitments.

So I would really like to take home some Superfast merchandise,(Hats, Shirt any thing really) but not sure if this would be attainable though an office of theirs or something.

Ive messaged them twice, but no response.

hoping someone can help.

Kind Regards- Mitchell.

Hello fellow cruisers,

I was wondering if anyhone has news about Vitzentzos Kornaros - I would like to book a trip for July but it's still not possible. Even June is not open.

Thank you,

Dominik

She has a serious engine problem.

They have to replace the crankshaft on the middle main engine of Vitsentzos Kornaros, so it is more likely that it will not sail at all this summer.

But will they go to the trouble and considerable expense of doing this work to a ship that is 41 years old?

the ministry of maritime affairs is looking for a new contractor, for Kornaros' lifeline.
