ANDREAS KALVOS (ΑΝΔΡΕΑΣ ΚΑΛΒΟΣ)

-Levante Ferries

Built in 1985 (age 36). Registered in Piraeus. Current line: Patras-Kefalonia-Ithaca

The ANDREAS KALVOS was built in Japan in 1985 as a Ro-Ro carrier. She started her career as the ESAN MORU No. 5, being deployed on the Aomori-Hakadate line for the Japanese company Donan Jidosha Ferry. She operated there for the first 15 years of her career. In 2000 she was sold to Cypriot company Vourakis Shipping. She was renamed TONIA, and in 2001 she operated as a Ro-Ro carrier on the Piraeus-Limassol line. In 2002 she was bought by Zante Ferries, a Greek company based in Zakynthos and then a part of the Ionian Ferries joint venture. She underwent a major conversion in Perama, thus becoming a passenger ferry, and she was renamed ANDREAS KALVOS. She finally started service on the Kyllini-Zakynthos line and on the Kyllini-Kefalonia line on the Ionian Sea in 2003. She also spent some time on the Patras-Kefalonia-Ithaca line from late 2012 to early 2013, after Strintzis Ferries, the company operating there, ceased operations, before returning to her previous usual service. In 2015 she underwent a major conversion once again, in Keratsini, whereupon she received sponsons and a modified stern. She was later transferred to the Aegean Sea, as she was deployed on the Piraeus-Kythnos-Serifos-Sifnos-Kimolos-Milos line, joining her fleetmate, the ADAMANTIOS KORAIS. She stayed there for two years, until 2017, when she returned to the Ionian Sea (with the DIONISIOS SOLOMOS replacing her on the Cyclades) to operate again on the Kyllini-Zakynthos line and on the Kyllini-Kefalonia line, this time under the Ionian Group joint venture. In 2019 she was sold to Levante Ferries and was again deployed on the Patras-Kefalonia-Ithaca line. In 2020 she returned to the Kyllini-Zakynthos line and to the Kyllini-Kefalonia line.
