HELLAS (ΕΛΛΑΣ)

-Antiparos Speedline NE

Built in 1976 (age 45). Registered in Nafplion. Current line: None (under refit in Paros)

The small traditional passenger boat HELLAS was built in 1976 in Greece, under the name TAXIARCHIS. She belonged to a generation of many small passenger ships that were built for service on the Saronic Gulf from the 1960s to the late-1970s called 'Koulouriotika'. She began service on the Piraeus-Salamina line for Salaminiotiki NE. She stayed there until 1995, whereupon she was transferred to the Corfu-Paxoi line on the Ionian Sea. In 2012 she was sold to Peloponnissos Cruises, was renamed HELLAS, and was deployed on the Nafplion-Tolo-Koilada line on the Argolic Gulf. She was sold in 2017 to Antiparos Speedline NE, in order to replace the company's departing ship, the HERMES (now known as the PETROULA of Petroula Speedline). She was deployed on the Paros-Antiparos line. In 2019 she was laid-up in Paros.
