KRITI II (ΚΡΗΤΗ ΙI)

-ANEK Lines

Built in 1979 (age 42). Registered in Chania. Current line: None (under refit in Perama)

The veteran ferry KRITI II was built in 1979 in Japan, as the NEW YUKARI for the company Shin Nihonkai Ferry. She spent the beginning of her career on the Tsuruga-Otaru line along with her sister ship, the NEW SUZURAN, before both ships were acquired by ANEK Lines in 1996. They underwent major conversions in Perama, and were respectively renamed KRITI II and KRITI I. They were deployed on the Patras-Igoumenitsa-Corfu-Ancona line on the Adriatic Sea in 1997, in order to compete with the newly-built SUPERFAST I and SUPERFAST II of Superfast Ferries and the newly-built ARETOUSA of Minoan Lines. With the arrivals of the OLYMPIC CHAMPION and the HELLENIC SPIRIT, two brand new cruiseferries built in 2000 and 2001 respectively, the KRITI II was transferred to the Patras-Igoumenitsa-Corfu-Trieste line in 2001. In 2002 she moved to Piraeus-Heraklion line. In 2009 she operated on the Piraeus-Chios-Mytilene-Limnos-Thessaloniki line, but she returned to the Piraeus-Heraklion line in 2010. With the establishment of the ANEK-Attica Group joint venture in 2011, the KRITI II was replaced by the OLYMPIC CHAMPION and was laid-up in Perama. She then operated on the Patras-Igoumenitsa-Corfu-Venice line along with the KRITI I in 2012, and along the chartered Italian Ro-Pax ferry FORZA in 2013. She suffered a minor fire in her garage in 2012 in Patras, but she was quickly repaired in Syros. In 2014 she went to the Piraeus-Chania line, and in 2015 she returned to the Piraeus-Heraklion line.
