NISSOS THIRASSIA (ΝΗΣΟΣ ΘΗΡΑΣΙΑ)

-Thirassia Shipping

Built in 1995 (age 26). Registered in Piraeus. Current line: Santorini-Thirassia

 

The landing craft NISSOS THIRASSIA was built in Greece in 1995, for Thirassia Shipping. She has spent all of the 26 years of her career on the Santorini-Thirassia line, and she is today the only ferry that is able to dock on the latter island on a daily basis. The ship moreover made a significant mark in the history of the Greek coastal service on 5 April 2007, when she took part of the rescue operation during the tragic sinking of the Louis Cruises cruise ship SEA DIAMOND, which took place in the Caldera area in Santorini. The ship helped evacuate 1500 passengers all by herself, and she was then helped by the SEA DIAMOND's lifeboats and by other smaller local passenger ships.
