-Fast Ferries

Built in 1989 (age 35). Registered in Piraeus. Current line: Piraeus-Syros-Tinos-Mykonos

The conventional ferry FAST FERRIES ANDROS was built in Japan in 1989. She began service as the SHINKO MARU for the Japanese company Nippon Kaiun, being deployed on the Kobe-Takamatsu line. She was sold in 2000 to the Taiwanese company King Fung Ma and she was renamed KING HUNG. She was bought in 2003 by the newly-established Greek company Strintzis Ferries. She was converted in Perama, was renamed EPTANISOS, and began service on the Ionian Sea, on the Kyllini-Kefalonia line. In 2011 she switched itineraries with her fleetmate, the KEFALONIA, therefore going to the Patras-Kefalonia-Ithaca line. Strintzis Ferries however ceased operations in 2012, and both the EPTANISOS and the KEFALONIA (now operating for Levante Ferries) were laid-up in Drapetsona. The EPTANISOS was then laid-up in the Elefsina Bay from 2013 to 2015, despite many comeback attempts. She was sold to Fast Ferries in 2015, a company that operates ferries from Rafina to the Cyclades. She was renamed FAST FERRIES ANDROS, underwent a major refurbishment in Elefsina, and was deployed on the Rafina-Syros-Tinos-Mykonos line for the summer. In 2016 she was deployed on her company's main service, namely on the Rafina-Andros-Tinos-Mykonos line. After the 2017 season, she was chartered to Blue Star Ferries, being deployed on the Piraeus-Syros-Tinos-Mykonos line as a replacement for the BLUE STAR PATMOS that was undergoing repairs following her accident in Ios. After serving the latter line for four months, she returned to the Rafina-Andros-Tinos-Mykonos line. In 2021 she operated on the Rafina-Andros-Tinos-Mykonos-Paros line.
