ADAMANTIOS KORAIS (ΑΔΑΜΑΝΤΙΟΣ ΚΟΡΑΗΣ)

-Zante Ferries

Built in 1987 (age 34). Registered in Piraeus. Current line: Piraeus-Kythnos-Serifos-Sifnos-Milos-Kimolos-Folegandros-Sikinos-Ios-Santorini

The impressive ferry ADAMANTIOS KORAIS was built in 1987 in Japan, as the VISVA for the Japanese company Higashi Nihon Ferry, alongside a sister ship, the VENA. Both ferries were deployed on the Aomori-Hakodate line. The VISVA, however, was sold in 1999 to fellow Japanese company Kyushi Orange Ferry, whereupon she was renamed KYUSHU. She was subsequently deployed on the Yawatahama-Usuki line, where she remained until 2007. That year, she reunited with her sister ship, the VENA, when both ferries were acquired by the Greek company Zante Ferries, being renamed ADAMANTIOS KORAIS and ODYSSEAS ELYTIS, respectively. The ADAMANTIOS KORAIS arrived initially in Zakynthos, then underwent an extensive conversion in Drapetsona and in Salamina, which lasted almost a year. The ship was completely modified, having acquired an upgraded stern and very luxurious passenger accommodation. Upon the completion of her conversion in 2008, she was deployed on the Piraeus-Paros-Naxos-Ios-Santorini line, becoming the first ship of Zante Ferries to operate on the Aegean Sea, and also becoming the company's flagship. Because of the high cost of her conversion, the ODYSSEAS ELYTIS never underwent her own and remained laid-up in Zakynthos before being finally sold in 2013 to Indonesian company PT Munic Line. In 2009, the ADAMANTIOS KORAIS was transferred to the Western Cyclades lifeline, on the Piraeus-Kythnos-Serifos-Sifnos-Milos-Kimolos-Folegandros-Sikinos-Ios-Santorini line, where she remains to date. She also cooperated with the ferry operating on the same line at the time, the AGIOS GEORGIOS (later the PANAGIA TINOU) of Ventouris Sea Lines, under the joint venture Cyclades Ferries, which lasted from 2010 to 2014. The ADAMANTIOS KORAIS has been among the best day ferries in Greece since her arrival on the Aegean Sea, and has won the hearts of the residents of the Western Cyclades islands that she served for 10 years. In 2020 she moved to the Northeast Aegean Sea, as she was deployed on the Alexandroupolis-Samothraki-Limnos line.
