- Before any Attica ship, the Olympus took the lead in stopping sailings for the winter, already in late August. This ship is yet another scandalous chapter in the sinful history of Greek coastal shipping, appearing only during the summer and collecting subsidies whenever these are around. Now she will let again other ships take the winter losses while the rumour concerning her is that she will be -successfully- applying for the subsidised service which the Prevelis is currently performing. A completely unsuitable ship(single rudder, no pitch) in a very demanding route. Anyway, let her be awarded the route and we have all the time in the world to bitch about this.

 

Be a shame for Prevelis ( and Anek) if Olympus gets this route.

Well apart from the obvious cosmetic changes, her owners did a significant upgrade on her in order to be able to participate in tenders for subsidized services that involve sailing further away from the nearest shore. An example of that is the Stavros. These upgrades involve both technical items as well as life saving appliances.

She has been probably moved on the drydock to finish work on her propeller

Another High-Speed Craft is added to the Seajets’ fleet and is on her way to Greece. The ship was purchased from the Venezuelan Golden Sun Petroleum S.A. and renamed SPEED JET. She left the port of El Guamache (Isla Margarita) where she was laid up and currently is seen at the port of Tembladora (Spain) flying the flag of Cyprus. SPEED JET was built in Australia (Austal) in 1996 and served for Scandlines (1996-2000), Ferrymed (2000-2002), SNAV (2002-2015) and Conferry (2015). Her carrying capacity is for 156 cars and 650 passengers. She is a sister ship to Seajets’ POWER JET.

On 26 January 2022, a tender will take place for the Sea Speed Ferries’ OLYMPUS (former ELLI T.). The tender was announced on 22 December 2021 and concern debts to the oil company Revoil. The former Japanese ferry (1976) was brought in Greece by Med Link Lines in 1998 for the Greece-Italy service. She also served for Maritime Way (2004-2006), Endeavor Lines (2006-2011) and Cretan Ferries (2012).
 
She was laid up at Perama when Cretan Ferries went out of business (2012). Sea Speed Lines purchased her at a tender in June 2018 for the Piraeus-Rethimnon line. The ship was out of service since August 2021 and her price is estimated at 600,000 euros.

That should be Tembladora (Port of Spain), Trinidad and Tobago. The vessel is the CROAZIA JET. https://www.marinetraffic.com/en/ais/details/ships/shipid:282092/mmsi:212454000/imo:9140918/vessel:CROAZIA_JET
