BLUE STAR 1 (ΜΠΛΟΥ ΣΤΑΡ 1)

-Blue Star Ferries

Built in 2000 (age 21). Registered in Piraeus. Current line: Under charter

The BLUE STAR 1 was ordered by Strintzis Lines in 1998, along with her sister ship, the BLUE STAR 2, as the SUPERFERRY ATLANTIC and the SUPERFERRY PACIFIC respectively. She and her sister ship adopted their current names when Strintzis Lines was acquired by Attica Group and became Blue Star Ferries. She was completed in The Netherlands in 2000, and she started her service on the Patras-Brindisi-Ancona line, while being transferred to the Patras-Igoumenitsa-Ancona line in 2001. She was transferred to the Aegean Sea in 2002, being deployed on the Cyclades and the Dodecanese, on the Piraeus-Syros-Mykonos-Amorgos-Patmos-Leros-Kos-Rhodes line, where she remained until 2004. In 2005 she returned to the Adriatic Sea, this time operating on the Patras-Igoumenitsa-Corfu-Bari line. In 2007, Attica Group, the owner of Blue Star Ferries, decided to transfer the ship to the Zeebrugge-Rosyth line, which connected Belgium with Scotland through the North Sea, in order to cover the space left by the Group's ship sold at the time, the SUPERFAST X of Superfast Ferries. She returned to Greece in 2008, being first deployed on the Patras-Igoumenitsa-Ancona line and on the Patras-Igoumenitsa-Bari line in order to replace her Attica Group fleetmates as they were heading for their annual refits, before she returned to her previous service on the Cyclades and the Dodecanese, on the Piraeus-Syros-Amorgos-Patmos-Leros-Kos-Rhodes line, in 2009. In 2010 she was deployed on the Piraeus-Santorini-Kos-Rhodes line, where she would go on to spend her next three summer seasons. In 2013 she operated on the Piraeus-Heraklion line during the summer season (under the ANEK-Attica Group joint venture), while in 2014 she returned to the Piraeus-Santorini-Kos-Rhodes line. In 2015 she was deployed on the Piraeus-Chios-Mytilene line on the Northeast Aegean Sea, extending her service during the summer to operate on the Piraeus-Samos-Chios-Mytilene-Limnos-Kavala line. In 2016 she was deployed on the Piraeus-Syros-Mykonos-Psara-Oinousses-Chios-Mytilene line. She returned to the Cyclades and the Dodecanese for the fourth time in her career in 2018, being again deployed on the Piraeus-Syros-Mykonos-Amorgos-Santorini-Samos-Patmos-Leros-Kalymnos-Kos-Symi-Rhodes line alongside the BLUE STAR 2. In 2020 she was inserted on the Piraeus-Syros-Paros-Naxos-Santorini-Samos-Kos-Rhodes line. In 2021 she was chartered to Irish Ferries and was deployed on the Pembroke Dock-Rosslare line on the Irish Sea. She has been the flagship of Blue Star Ferries ever since she was delivered.
