BLUE STAR PAROS (ΜΠΛΟΥ ΣΤΑΡ ΠΑΡΟΣ)

-Blue Star Ferries

Built in 2002 (age 19). Registered in Piraeus. Current line: Piraeus-Syros-Tinos-Mykonos

 

The BLUE STAR PAROS was ordered in 2000 by the then-newly-formed company Blue Star Ferries, along with the BLUE STAR NAXOS, as sister ships of the very successful 2000-built fleetmate, the BLUE STAR ITHAKI (now in Canada). Originally planned to be named BLUE STAR SANTORINI, she was instead named BLUE STAR PAROS and was completed alongside her sister ship in 2002 in South Korea, being deployed on the Piraeus-Syros-Paros-Naxos-Ios-Santorini line, replacing the BLUE STAR ITHAKI. In 2006 she was deployed on the Piraeus-Paros-Naxos-Irakleia-Schoinousa-Koufonisi-Donousa-Amorgos-Santorini-Astypalaia line, where she operated up until 2014. In 2015, the ship was deployed for the first time from the port Rafina, operating on the Rafina-Mykonos-Paros-Naxos-Ios line previously occupied by the company's former ship, the BLUE STAR ITHAKI, before she was sold to Canadian company Bay Ferries Limited in 2014. The following year she was deployed on the Dodecanese lifeline for the summer, on the Piraeus-Astypalaia-Patmos-Leipsoi-Leros-Kalymnos-Kos-Nisyros-Tilos-Symi-Rhodes-Castellorizon line, replacing the DIAGORAS which had been sold by Blue Star Ferries. In 2017, she connected this lifeline with the Cyclades islands of Paros and Naxos, thus operating on the Piraeus-Paros-Naxos-Astypalaia-Patmos-Leipsoi-Leros-Kalymnos-Kos-Nisyros-Tilos-Symi-Rhodes-Castellorizon line. In 2018, she was deployed on the Piraeus-Syros-Tinos-Mykonos-Ikaria-Fournoi-Samos line. In 2020 she was inserted on the Piraeus-Syros-Tinos-Mykonos line. Just like the BLUE STAR NAXOS, the BLUE STAR PAROS has been an acclaimed ship on the Cyclades, and she has been considered as one of the most modern and reliable ferries in the whole of Greece in the last two decades.
