-Sea Jets

Built in 1997 (age 24). Registered in Limassol. Current line: Thessaloniki-Skiathos-Skopelos-Alonissos

The high speed craft CHAMPION JET 1 was built in Australia in 1997, as the INCAT 044. After a period of advertisement by her builder, she was taken over by the French company Condor Ferries. She began her career on the Channel, under the name CONDOR VITESSE. She operated on the Poole-Guernsey-Jersey line until 1999, when she was chartered to the New Zealand-based company Interislander, operating on the Wellington-Picton line. She returned to Condor Ferries the following year, and she was deployed on the Cherbourg-Poole line, under a partnership that was made between her company and Brittany Ferries. This lasted until 2011, when she was deployed on the St Malo-Jersey-Guernsey-Poole-Weymouth line. She was bought in 2015 by Greek company Sea Jets, along with her sister ship, the CONDOR EXPRESS, and the ships were renamed CHAMPION JET 1 and CHAMPION JET 2, respectively. The CHAMPION JET 1 was converted in Elefsina, and was deployed on the Piraeus-Mykonos-Naxos-Santorini line, before later going to the Piraeus-Sifnos-Milos-Folegandros-Ios-Santorini line and then to the Heraklion-Santorini-Ios-Naxos-Mykonos line. Her first season wasn't quite successful, as she was involved in a collision, suffered three technical problems and was many times late on her schedule. Fully refitted, she had a much better season in 2016, being deployed on the Heraklion-Santorini-Ios-Naxos-Paros-Mykonos line. In 2017, she returned to the Piraeus-Mykonos-Naxos-Santorini line. In 2019 she was chartered to Spanish company Naviera Armas and was deployed on the Almería-Melilla-Málaga line. She returned to Sea Jets the following year.
