-Kerkyra Lines

Built in 1989 (age 35). Registered in Piraeus. Current line: Igoumenitsa-Corfu-Paxoi

The conventional ferry AGIA THEODORA was built in 1989 in Japan, as the YUKAZURU MARU for the Japanese company Awaji Ferry Boat. She was deployed on the Kobe-Awaji line on the Akashi Strait. Following the construction of the Akashi Kaikyo Bridge which linked the island of Awaji with Osaka and Kobe, the ferry service was discontinued and the YUKAZURU MARU was laid-up in Kobe. In 1999 she was renamed FERRY BLUE SKY after being transferred to the Japanese company Highroad Shipping, but she then immediately sold within a few months to the Greek company Kerkyra Lines. She was renamed AGIA THEODORA and she underwent a major conversion in Perama, during which her entire accommodation superstructure was remodeled. Her garage deck was covered, her bow was fully modified, her stern was rebuilt with the addition of an outdoor deck for passengers, while her indoor areas and engine room were fully renovated. She began service in late 1999 on the Igoumenitsa-Corfu-Paxoi line on the Ionian Sea, hence becoming the third ship of Kerkyra Lines following the landing craft KERKYRA and and the conventional ferry AGIOS SPYRIDON, which were sold in 2005 and in 2007, respectively. She was part of the Kerkyra Ferries joint venture which included her company and 2way Ferries from 2005 to 2023. She was the flagship of Kerkyra Lines until the arrival of the KERKYRA EXPRESS in 2015.
