The HIGHSPEED 6 was the sixth ship of Hellenic Seaways' well-known 'Highspeed' brand. She was built in Australia in 2000. She was delivered to Spanish company Trasmediterránea as the MILENIUM for service on the Barcelona-Palma line. In 2005 her company was privatised and was renamed Acciona Trasmediterránea. In 2006 she was deployed on the Valencia-Ibiza-Palma line, where she remained until 2009, when she was laid-up in Sant Carles de la Ràpita. In 2010 she was sold to Hellenic Seaways, and she was renamed HIGHSPEED 6. She first began service on the Piraeus-Serifos-Sifnos-Kimolos-Milos-Ios-Santorini line, before being deployed on the Rafina-Andros-Tinos-Mykonos line from the fall of 2010 until early 2011. She was then deployed on the Piraeus-Syros-Tinos-Mykonos-Ios-Santorini line. She continued to operate on that same line in 2012, before transferring to the Piraeus-Ios-Santorini line in 2013. She spent the next three years on that line, while also simultaneously operating on the Piraeus-Syros-Mykonos line from 2013 to 2015. Following the summer of 2016, during which she only operated on the Piraeus-Ios-Santorini line, and after 7 successful years in Greece, she returned to Spain after being sold to the company Naviera Armas. She was renamed VOLCÁN DE TENO in 2017, and she was deployed on the Motril-Melilla line. In 2018 she was deployed on the Las Palmas-Santa Cruz de Tenerife line. In 2019 she was deployed on the Algeciras-Ceuta line.
