-Hellenic Seaways

Built in 1993 (age 31). Registered in Piraeus. Current line: None (under refit in Perama)

The hydrofoil FLYING DOLPHIN XXIX was built in Georgia in 1993, being delivered to the Greek company Ceres Flying Dolphins. She became the last small hydrofoil to be acquired by Ceres Flying Dolphins and to begin operations for them (as three larger hydrofoils called Mega Dolphins joined the fleet in the following years). She began her career on the Saronic Gulf, on the Piraeus-Aegina-Agistri-Poros-Hydra-Ermioni-Spetses-Porto Cheli line. In 1999 Ceres Flying Dolphins was taken over by Minoan Flying Dolphins. Nevertheless, the hydrofoil remained on her same Saronic Gulf itinerary. Her company was renamed Hellas Flying Dolphins in 2002, and was then rebranded as Hellenic Seaways in 2005. In 2022, following the arrival of the three newly-built aero high speed catamarans of Hellenic Seaways, she was withdrawn from service and was laid-up in Perama. She is currently the youngest active hydrofoil in the Greek coastal service.
