NAXOS JET (ΝΑΞΟΣ ΤΖΕΤ)

-Sea Jets

Built in 1992 (age 29). Registered in Piraeus. Current line: Heraklion-Rethymnon-Santorini

The high speed ferry NAXOS JET was built in 1992 in Australia. She began service as the SEACAT SCOTLAND on the Stanraer-Belfast line for SeaCat (previously known as Sea Containers) on the North Channel. In 1994 she was chartered to Qatari company Q-Ships, being renamed Q SHIP EXPRESS and being deployed on the Doha-Dubaï line. Her charter ended in 1995 and she returned to SeaCat, being again renamed SEACAT SCOTLAND and again deployed on the Stanraer-Belfast line. She then had a brief charter from 1997 to 1998 to Uruguayan company Navegación Atlantida, being deployed on the Buenos Aires-Colonia line. She returned to SeaCat in 1999, being once again deployed on the Stanraer-Belfast line. She was deployed on the Calais-Dover line on the Channel in 2003. In 2004, however, due to her company's financial issues, she was laid-up in Sunderland. She spent three years there, before being purchased by a Greek company, Fortune Maritime, which intended to operate her on the Red Sea. She was renamed SHIKRA and arrived in Keratsini for conversion, where she was renamed AL HUDA I. She was subsequently deployed on the Safaga-Duba line, where she remained until 2010. That year, she returned to Greece for service with the company My Ferries, and was planned to be renamed MYCAT II and to be deployed on the Rafina-Syros-Mykonos-Paros-Naxos line. However, before the season began, she was chartered instead to NEL Lines, being renamed CYCLADES EXPRESS and being deployed on the Heraklion-Santorini line. After that season, NEL Lines never redeployed her, and her charter ended prematurely. As a result, she was laid-up in Salamina for five years. In 2016, however, she was sold to Sea Jets, being renamed NAXOS JET. She was refitted in 2017 in Elefsina, Salamina and Chalkida, and was deployed in 2018 on the Rafina-Andros-Syros-Tinos-Mykonos-Paros-Naxos line. In 2019 she was deployed on the Rafina-Andros-Tinos-Mykonos-Paros-Naxos line. In 2020 she was inserted on the Heraklion-Santorini-Naxos-Paros-Mykonos line.
