POSIDON HELLAS (ΠΟΣΕΙΔΩΝ ΕΛΛΑΣ)

-2way Ferries

Built in 1998 (age 26). Registered in Piraeus. Current line: Piraeus-Aegina-Agistri

The conventional double-ended ferry POSIDON HELLAS was originally planned to be built in 1981 under the name THALIS O MILISIOS II for OTE, but her construction was delayed for 17 years, before being completed in 1998 in Greece for Poseidon Consortium Shipping (the predecessor of her current owners, 2way Ferries), under her current name. She is the first-ever conventional double-ended ferry in the history of the Greek coastal service. She was deployed on the Piraeus-Aegina-Poros-Hydra-Spetses line, before being purchased by Minoan Flying Dolphins in 1999. She kept her name and began service on the Piraeus-Aegina-Agistri-Methana-Poros-Hydra-Spetses line, under the Saronikos Ferries division. Minoan Flying Dolphins was renamed Hellas Flying Dolphins in 2002. In 2005 it became became Hellenic Seaways, with the ship continuing to operate on the Saronic Gulf. In 2008, she was deployed on the Piraeus-Aegina-Agistri-Methana-Poros line. In 2015 she was sold to 2way Ferries, which was cooperating with Hellenic Seaways since the establishment of the Saronic Ferries joint venture in 2014. This marked her second stint under the shipowner Papaïoannidis, who owned her when she was operating for Poseidon Consortium Shipping during the first two years of her career. She remained in service on the Piraeus-Aegina-Agistri-Methana-Poros line.
