Well Tom, although Greece is the Land of Resurrection for older ferries, I personally cannot see how and why a ferry that was deemed too expensive to run in markets with low fuel prices, can be considered profitable in the summer of 2022. Unless of course we're talking about a static role as accomodation, which is a different proposition altogether.

The ship and her owners have been deemed unfit for the service, following an emergency process from the Ministry. Through a similar emergency process, the service has been awarded again to the Prevelis. On the day of her first sailing, the PSC inspected the ship and found more than a couple of dozen of detainable deficiencies. This triggered the whole sequence of events.

Really, no question here. Just an observation that Sifnos Jet seems to be always taking an unconventional route around Paros towards Naxos. It sails between Paros and the small islets north of Paros. Maybe saves a couple of minutes?

One question: When was the new port Athinios of Santorini completed? Couldn't find that info on the net in English.

Chaps, we have a special topic for the A-B-C classes here. I think a translator might solve many of your questions. In short, the biggest difference is on a life saving appliances level as well as GMDSS provisions.

 

@Esperos Papadaskalopoulos: the port of Athinios, Santorini, in its current shape was completed in early 2021

Rumors are that ANEK Lines will be put up for sale by Piraeus Bank in the (very) near future. Any idea if Attica Group will add ANEK Lines as a whole into their shipping group of companies?

Also, what would that mean for the Prevelis? Would they be able to get the new contract for the Karpathos route?
