KALLI P (ΚΑΛΛΗ Π)

-Idomeneas Lines

Built in 1996 (age 25). Registered in Valetta. Current line: None (laid-up in Perama)

The high speed ferry KALLI P was built in 1996 in France. She was delivered to French company SNCM (Société Nationale Maritime Corse-Méditerranée) as the NGV ALISO. She was deployed on the Livorno-Bastia-Portoferraio line. In 2004, she and her sister ship, the NGV ASCO, were sold to Greek company C-Link Ferries (formerly known as A.K. Ventouris) and were renamed PANAGIA THALASSINI and PANAGIA PAROU, respectively. After being converted in Perama, the PANAGIA THALASSINI was deployed in 2005 on the Piraeus-Ios-Santorini-Rethymnon-Heraklion line. In 2006 she was deployed on the Lavrion-Syros-Tinos-Mykonos line. In 2007 C-Link Ferries was taken over by NEL Lines, which both the PANAGIA THALASSINI and the PANAGIA PAROU joined as a result. She was deployed on the Lavrion-Kythnos-Syros-Paros-Naxos-Amorgos line that year. In 2008, amidst a rumoured sale to Egyptian company Namma Lines, she was laid-up in Perama and then in Lavrion. The sale eventually did not take place, and the ship returned to service in 2009, being deployed on the Volos-Skiathos-Skopelos-Limnos-Agios Efstratios-Psara-Chios line. In 2010 she was deployed on the Lavrion-Chios-Psara line, where she remained until 2012. That year, she and the PANAGIA PAROU were chartered to Moroccan company Inter Shipping, for service on the Algeciras-Tangier Med line. By 2013, however, the charter ended, and, due to the serious economic problems faced by NEL Lines, both ships were laid-up, with the PANAGIA THALASSINI being abandoned in 2013 in Tangier Med. She stayed there until 2015, when she was sold to Panagiotopoulos Shipping, which was rebranded as Idomeneas Lines. She returned to Greece and was renamed KALLI P. She was due to operate on the Heraklion-Santorini line. However, while undergoing her preparation in Keratsini, engine issues and problems regarding the debts owed by NEL Lines forced the ship to remain laid-up. She was moved to Perama in 2016 for further lay-up, and her future is uncertain.
