In 1992 she was renamed ELAFONISOS and was deployed on the the Palaiochora-Elafonisi line, performing daily cruises connecting Crete with the small island of Elafonisi. She renamed in this service for the next 20 years, until she was sold to Agia Marina I NE. She was employed on the Paros-Antiparos line, operating under the Antiparos Lines brandname.
