BLUE STAR NAXOS (ΜΠΛΟΥ ΣΤΑΡ ΝΑΞΟΣ)

-Blue Star Ferries

Built in 2002 (age 19). Registered in Piraeus. Current line: Piraeus-Syros-Paros-Naxos-Irakleia-Schoinousa-Koufonisi-Donousa-Amorgos-Santorini-Astypalaia

The BLUE STAR NAXOS was ordered in 2000 by the then-newly-formed company Blue Star Ferries, along with the BLUE STAR PAROS, as sister ships of the very successful 2000-built fleetmate, the BLUE STAR ITHAKI (now in Canada). She was completed alongside her sister ship in 2002 in South Korea, and was deployed on the Piraeus-Syros-Paros-Naxos-Irakleia-Schoinousa-Koufonisi-Donousa-Amorgos-Santorini line. In 2005 she operated on the Piraeus-Syros-Paros-Naxos-Ios-Santorini-Astypalaia-Kalymnos line, but this lasted only one year as she was deployed on the Piraeus-Paros-Naxos-Santorini line in 2006. In 2007 she operated on the Piraeus-Syros-Paros-Naxos-Irakleia-Schoinousa-Koufonisi-Donousa-Amorgos-Ios-Santorini-Astypalaia line, while also undergoing a small conversion later in that year in Perama in order to increase her passenger capacity. She continued to operate on that same line for the next four summer seasons. From 2008 to 2014 she was also also deployed on the Dodecanese lifeline every winter, when her fleetmate, the DIAGORAS, would undergo her annual refit, thus serving the Piraeus-Astypalaia-Patmos-Leipsoi-Leros-Kalymnos-Kos-Nisyros-Tilos-Symi-Rhodes-Castellorizon line. In 2012 she operated on the Piraeus-Syros-Tinos-Mykonos line, where she remained until 2014, after the BLUE STAR ITHAKI was sold to the Canadian company Bay Ferries Limited. In 2015 she returned to the Cyclades lifeline she had previously been serving, being deployed on the Piraeus-Syros-Tinos-Mykonos-Paros-Naxos-Irakleia-Schoinousa-Koufonisi-Amorgos-Santorini line, which she also served in 2016 and in 2017. In 2018 she was deployed on the Piraeus-Syros-Paros-Naxos-Irakleia-Schoinousa-Koufonisi-Donousa-Amorgos-Santorini-Astypalaia line. She grounded off in Schoinousa in 2019. In the 19 years she has spent on the Aegean Sea, she is considered to be one of the most modern, fast and comfortable ships of the Greek coastal service.
