HELLENIC HIGHSPEED (ΧΕΛΛΕΝΙΚ ΧΑΪΣΠΙΝΤ)

-Hellenic Seaways

Built in 1997 (age 24). Registered in Piraeus. Current line: None (under refit in Piraeus)

 

The high speed ferry HELLENIC HIGHSPEED was built in 1997 in Italy and was delivered as the SUPERSEACAT TWO to the company SuperSeaCat, owned by Sea Containers. She was deployed on the Calais-Dover line on the Channel, but in 1998 she was deployed on the Liverpool-Dublin line on the Irish Sea. In 1999, she was deployed on the Dieppe-Newhaven line on the Channel, while in 2000 she operated on the Heysham-Belfast line on the Irish Sea. In 2001, she was deployed on the Ostend-Calais-Dover line, but this lasted only a year, as she was laid-up for the entire 2002 season in Portsmouth. The following year, she was sold to the Isle of Man Steam Packet Company, and was mainly deployed on Liverpool-Douglas line, while occasionally operating on the Dublin-Douglas line. In 2008, she was renamed VIKING. In 2009, with the arrival of the Isle of Man Steam Packet Company's newer and larger high speed catamaran, the MANANNAN, the VIKING was chartered to the Azores-based company Atlântico Line. She was deployed on the Vila Do Porto-Ponta Delgada-Praia Da Vitória-Velas-Pico-Horta lifeline. That same year, she was sold to Greek company Hellenic Seaways, and was renamed HELLENIC WIND. Although she arrived in Greece, she did not operate for Hellenic Seaways until 2015. Indeed, between the summer of 2010 and the summer of 2015, Hellenic Seaways continued to charter the HELLENIC WIND to Atlântico Line, where she would resume  her service on the Vila Do Porto-Ponta Delgada-Praia Da Vitória-Velas-Pico-Horta lifeline. In 2015, following the completion of her charter, she operated for two months for Hellenic Seaways on the inter-Cyclades lifeline, on the Lavrion-Kea-Kythnos-Syros-Tinos-Andros-Paros-Naxos-Ios-Sikinos-Folegandros-Kimolos-Milos-Sifnos-Serifos line. Following her spell there, she finally became a part of her company's plans, and it was decided that she would be operating on the Cyclades. She therefore underwent a major conversion in Perama, being fully renovated and being renamed HELLENIC HIGHSPEED. Her conversion was completed in 2016, and she was deployed on the Rafina-Tinos-Mykonos-Paros-Ios-Santorini line, and her service there was extremely successful. In 2017, she was deployed on the Piraeus-Sifnos-Ios-Santorini line, where she also had a successful summer season. She also operated on the Piraeus-Syros-Mykonos line in afternoons during the high season, like her predecessor, the HIGHSPEED 6 (now the VOLCÁN DE TENO of Naviera Armas) had done so from 2013 to 2015. In 2019, she was chartered to Fast Ferries, being deployed on the Rafina-Tinos-Mykonos-Naxos line, in order to provide cover for the EKATERINI P, which was forced to miss the 2019 season after suffering an engine failure. Her service there was extremely successful and flawless, and was praised by passengers. She then returned to Hellenic Seaways, and was deployed on the Dodecanese, on the Siteia-Kasos-Karpathos-Chalki-Rhodes line, in 2020. In 2021 she was inserted on the Piraeus-Mykonos-Ikaria-Fournoi-Patmos-Leros-Kalymnos-Kos-Symi-Rhodes line.
