FLYING DOLPHIN XVII (ΦΛΑΪΝΓΚ ΝΤΟΛΦΙΝ XVII)

-Hellenic Seaways

Built in 1984 (age 37). Registered in Piraeus. Current line: Piraeus-Aegina-Agistri-Poros-Hydra-Ermioni-Spetses-Porto Cheli

 

The hydrofoil FLYING DOLPHIN XVII was built in Georgia (then part of the Soviet Union) in 1984, for the Greek hydrofoil company Ceres Flying Dolphins, joining alongside her sister ship, the FLYING DOLPHIN XVIII. She has spent her entire career on the Saronic Gulf, on the Piraeus-Aegina-Agistri-Poros-Hydra-Ermioni-Spetses-Porto Cheli line. In 1999 Ceres Flying Dolphins was transferred to Minoan Flying Dolphins, which became Hellas Flying Dolphins in 2002 and then was renamed Hellenic Seaways in 2005. Despite these changes, the hydrofoil remained on the Saronic Gulf, always on the Piraeus-Aegina-Agistri-Poros-Hydra-Ermioni-Spetses-Porto Cheli line. Even though she was supposed to be retired in 2014 because of the completion of her 30 years of service, Hellenic Seaways was granted a one-year extension for both her and the FLYING DOLPHIN XVIII. Then, even though her service was due to end in 2015, the hydrofoil was again granted an indefinite extension, allowing her to continue her operations on the Saronic Gulf.
