AGIA EIRINI (ΑΓΙΑ ΕΙΡΗΝΗ)

-Kerkyra Seaways

Built in 1994 (age 30). Registered in Piraeus. Current line: Igoumenitsa-Corfu

The landing craft AGIA EIRINI was built in 1994 in Greece, as the MIAOULIS I for the Greek company Miaoulis Shipping. She was deployed on the Piraeus-Aegina line on the Saronic Gulf. Her spell there was unsuccessful and was notably marked by incidents including her ramp breaking and falling at sea while sailing next to Psyttaleia during her debut season, as well as a collision with the ferry SUPER NAÏAS of Agapitos Lines in 1996. During that same year, she was deployed on the Agia Marina-Nea Styra line on the Petalioi Gulf. In 2000, she occasionally performed trips on the Aspropyrgos-Thessaloniki line in order to transport various goods, while remaining based on the Agia Marina-Nea Styra line. In 2002, she grounded in the islet of Skouronisi next to Nea Styra, and she was later repaired in Perama. In 2003 she moved to the Rion-Antirrion line, where she experienced another major incident, as she collided with the cargo ship ROKSOLANA on the Rion Strait and she suffered significant damage. She was repaired in Perama, while in 2004 she returned to the Agia Marina-Nea Styra line. She would continue to perform occasional services as Ro-Ro carrier on the Cyclades and Evoia, based from Lavrion. In 2007 she was sold to the Corfu-based company Gerontakis Shipping and she was renamed AGIA EIRINI. She underwent a major conversion in Perama, during which her stern was fully remodeled and her accommodation superstructure was upgraded in order to carry more passengers. She was deployed on the Igoumenitsa-Corfu line on the Ionian Sea, where she has since been remaining. Her company became part of the Corfu Ferries joint venture together with Kerkyra Seaways, to whom she was transferred in 2020.
