PANTANASSA (ΠΑΝΤΑΝΑΣΣΑ)

-Pantanassa NE

Built in 1990 (age 31). Registered in Piraeus. Current line: Megara-Salamina

The landing craft PANTANASSA was built in 1990 in Greece, as the PREVEZA for the Municipality of Preveza, for service on the Preveza-Aktion line on the Ambracian Gulf. She operated there until 2002, when the service between both ports she was serving was discontinued following the completion of the construction of an undersea road tunnel. That year she was deployed on the Rion-Antirrion line. She then moved to the Kefalonia-Ithaca-Lefkada line on the Ionian Sea in 2003, where she remained for one season. She then returned to the Rion-Antirrion line in 2004. In 2007 she was sold to newly-established company Pantassa NE, and was renamed PANTANASSA. She underwent a major conversion in Salamina, during which she was lengthened, her bridge was moved forward, an upper deck was added, her bow was completely modified and her engines were replaced. She then entered service on the Igoumenitsa-Corfu line on the Ionian Sea, where she operated for three seasons. In 2010 she returned to the Rion-Antirrion line, which she served over the the next 10 years. In 2020 she was deployed on the Megara-Salamina line.
