BLUE GALAXY (ΜΠΛΟΥ ΓΚΑΛΑΞΥ)

-Blue Star Ferries

Built in 1992 (age 29). Registered in Piraeus. Current line: Piraeus-Chania

Among the best ships in the Greek coastal service, she was built in Japan in 1992, for the company Higashi Nihon Ferry. She began her career on the Naoetsu-Muroran-Iwanai line as the HERCULES, before her sale to ANEK Lines in 1999. Originally renamed KRITI V, she was instead renamed LEFKA ORI and was converted in Perama. She began service on the Adriatic Sea in 2000, on the Patras-Igoumenitsa-Corfu-Trieste line. She was then deployed on the Patras-Igoumenitsa-Corfu-Venice line from 2005 to 2011. There, the ship, along with her sister ship SOPHOCLES V (now the KYDON), was very successful and much appreciated by passengers. However, in 2012, the Greek financial crisis pushed ANEK Lines to charter the two ships to South Korea, with a purchasing option. The ships were acquired by company Jeju Cruise Line, which planned to rename the LEFKA ORI to ANTONIO L. She arrived in Busan, but she and her sister never began service there, as the company collapsed due to debts owed to the shipyards that were supposed to convert them. After being abandoned in Busan for a year, the two ships returned to Perama. In late 2014, the LEFKA ORI began a conversion, following her transfer to Blue Star Ferries. She was renamed BLUE GALAXY, being the second ship in the history of the company to bear that name (after Strintzis Lines' legendary IONIAN GALAXY, which became the BLUE GALAXY when Strintzis Lines was purchased by Attica Group in 2000), and began service on the Piraeus-Chania line, under the ANEK-Attica Group joint venture.
