-2way Ferries

Built in 1990 (age 34). Registered in Piraeus. Current line: None (under refit in Perama)

The conventional ferry APOLLON HELLAS was built in Greece in 1990 as the GEORGIOS for the Greek company Akouriki Shipping Company, for service on the Saronic Gulf. She operated on the Piraeus-Aegina-Agistri-Methana-Poros-Hydra-Ermioni-Spetses line. She was sold to the South Korean company Wing Ferry Company, in 1995 and was renamed SUN BEACH. Her service on the Saronic Gulf was taken over by the newly-built GEORGIOS 2 (now the ARTEMIS of Hellenic Seaways) in 1997. In South Korea, she was deployed on the Nokdong-Jeju line on the Jeju Strait. However, after just two years, her owners went bankrupt, and she was therefore laid-up in Jeju. In 1999 she made a return to Greece after four years, as she was bought by Poseidon Consortium Shipping. She was renamed APOLLON HELLAS and was re-deployed on the Saronic Gulf, the area where she had started her career. She went on to spend only one summer with her new owners, on the Piraeus-Aegina-Methana-Poros-Hydra-Spetses line, as she and her fleetmates were sold in late 1999 to Minoan Flying Dolphins. She operated under the Saronikos Ferries division and continued to operate on the Saronic Gulf, serving the Piraeus-Aegina-Methana-Poros-Hydra-Spetses line. Her company was rebranded as Hellenic Seaways in 2005, and the APOLLON HELLAS went on to serve the Piraeus-Aegina-Methana-Poros line until 2014, when she was deployed on the Sporades, operating on the Volos-Skiathos-Skopelos-Alonissos line, though she continued to operate on the Saronic Gulf during the winter under the Saronic Ferries joint venture. In the summer of 2015 she returned to the Sporades, this time on the Agios Konstantinos-Skiathos-Skopelos-Alonissos line, while operating again on the Saronic Gulf for that year's winter season. In 2016, after eleven years with Hellenic Seaways, she was sold to 2way Ferries, a company which had also bought her former Saronic Gulf fleetmate, the POSIDON HELLAS, in 2015. After spending the 2016 season on the Agios Konstantinos-Skiathos-Skopelos-Alonissos line, she subsequently returned to the Saronic Gulf in 2017. She was once again inserted on the Piraeus-Aegina-Methana-Poros line.
