The conventional ferry ARTEMIS was built in Greece in 1997, for the Greek company Akouriki Shipping Company as the GEORGIOS 2, for service on the Saronic Gulf, which had been left empty by her former fleetmate, the GEORGIOS (now the APOLLON HELLAS of 2way Ferries), since 1995. She operated on the Piraeus-Aegina-Methana-Poros-Hydra-Spetses-Porto Cheli line. The ship was acquired by Minoan Flying Dolphins in 1999, and began operating under the Saronikos Ferries division. When Minoan Flying Dolphins (which had been renamed Hellas Flying Dolphins in 2002) became Hellenic Seaways in 2005, the ship was renamed ARTEMIS, and continued to be deployed on the Saronic Gulf, on the Piraeus-Aegina-Agistri-Methana-Poros-Hydra-Spetses line. In 2008 she was deployed on the Piraeus-Aegina-Methana-Poros line. In 2009, she was chartered to ANEK Lines for three years, and was deployed on the inter-Cyclades lifeline, on the Lavrion-Kea-Kythnos-Syros-Tinos-Andros-Paros-Naxos-Donousa-Amorgos-Milos-Kimolos-Folegandros-Sikinos-Ios-Santorini-Thirassia-Anafi line. After the 2012 summer season she returned to Hellenic Seaways, and was deployed on the Volos-Skiathos-Skopelos-Alonissos line on the Sporades in 2013. In 2014 her company became part of the Saronic Ferries joint venture, and she returned to the Saronic Gulf, serving the Piraeus-Aegina-Agistri-Methana-Poros line. In 2015 she returned to the inter-Cyclades lifeline, this time on the Lavrion-Kea-Kythnos-Syros-Tinos-Andros-Paros-Naxos-Ios-Sikinos-Folegandros-Kimolos-Milos-Sifnos-Serifos line, in order to cover the space left by the ships owned by NEL Lines (the AQUA SPIRIT and the AQUA JEWEL, which were then purchased by Sea Jets in 2016 and 2017, respectively), which were at the time arrested by their crews.
