SPEEDRUNNER III (ΣΠΗΝΤΡΑΝΝΕΡ ΙΙΙ)

-Aegean Speed Lines

Built in 1999 (age 22). Registered in Piraeus. Current line: Piraeus-Serifos-Sifnos-Milos

The high speed ferry SPEEDRUNNER III was built in 1999 in Italy for the company Sea Containers, alongside three other sister ships (two of which are the HELLENIC HIGHSPEED of Hellenic Seaways and the SUPERRUNNER of Golden Star Ferries). Initially named SUPERSEACAT THREE, she was deployed on the Liverpool-Dublin line on the Irish Sea. In 2000 she was transferred to the Liverpool-Douglas line. In 2001 she operated on the Calais-Dover line on the Channel, while in 2002 she returned to the Liverpool-Dublin line. In 2003, she joined her sister ship, the SUPERSEACAT FOUR, on the Baltic Sea, after being chartered to Silja Line and operating under the SuperSeaCat brand. She was deployed on the Tallinn-Helsinki line. In 2007 she collided with the TALLINK AUTOEXPRESS 2 of Tallink in Tallinn, but was repaired and returned to service immediately afterwards. She was sold to Greek high speed craft company Aegean Speed Lines in 2008, along with the SUPERSEACAT FOUR, and both ships were renamed SPEEDRUNNER III and SPEEDRUNNER IV, respectively. After the completion of the 2008 season on the Baltic Sea she went to Poland for conversion, arriving in Greece right before the start of the summer of 2009. That year, she was deployed on the Piraeus-Syros-Tinos-Mykonos line. After a good first season, she was deployed on the Piraeus-Syros-Tinos-Mykonos-Paros-Naxos line in 2010. She continued on that same line in 2011, but suffered a major engine failure which caused her to miss many months of service. This, combined with the impact the Greek financial crisis had on her company, saw her laid-up for the entire 2012 season in Elefsina. She was repaired, however, and returned to service in 2013, being deployed on the Piraeus-Serifos-Sifnos-Milos line, where she also stayed during the 2014 season. In 2015 she was chartered to Moroccan company Navline and was deployed on the Algeciras-Tangier Med line. In 2016 she was chartered to Levante Ferries, and operated, under the Ionian Group joint venture, on the Patras-Kefalonia-Ithaca line on the Ionian Sea, thus being the first high speed craft to operate on the line since 2002. Her charter ended after the 2016 summer season, and she returned to Aegean Speed Lines after the company sold the SPEEDRUNNER IV to Golden Star Ferries. She was deployed once again on the Western Cyclades in 2017, operating on the Piraeus-Serifos-Sifnos-Milos-Kimolos-Folegandros-Sikinos line. In 2018 she was deployed on the Piraeus-Serifos-Sifnos-Milos-Kimolos line. In 2019 she was deployed exclusively on the Piraeus-Serifos-Sifnos-Milos line.
