PROTOPOROS VI (ΠΡΩΤΟΠΟΡΟΣ VI)

-Thassos Link

Built in 2012 (age 10). Registered in Limassol. Current line: Keramoti-Thassos

The double-ended ferry PROTOPOROS VI was built in 2012 in Greece, for the Greek company Tsokos Lines. Being named PROTOPOROS VI, she became the sixth ship to be built for the company. She was deployed on the Arkitsa-Aidipsos line on the North Evoian Gulf, becoming the first-ever ship of the company to be deployed there. She remained there until 2015, when she was sold to Russian company Proekt CJSC. She was renamed POBEDA and was deployed on the Kavkaz-Port Krym line on the Kerch Strait. After the opening of the Kerch Strait Bridge in 2018, she was laid-up in Kerch in early 2019. She remained there until 2021, when she was sold to Greek company Thassos Link. She made her return to Greece by once again being renamed PROTOPOROS VI, although she was due to be renamed STELIOS FILIAGKOS. After a refit in Salamina, she entered service on the Keramoti-Thassos line in 2022.
