The high speed ferry SUPERRUNNER JET was built in Italy, being almost completed in 1998 with a view of operating for the subsidiary of Sea Containers known as Superseacat Italia, as the SUPERSEACAT FOUR on the Brindisi-Çeşme line. However, she remained incomplete for the entire year, instead entering service in 1999 on the Baltic Sea, on the Tallinn-Helsinki line. She was chartered to the Finnish company Silja Line between 2000 and 2006, whereupon she operated under the SuperSeaCat brandname. She was sold to the Greek company Aegean Speed Lines in 2008, along with the SUPERSEACAT THREE, and both ships were renamed SPEEDRUNNER IV and SPEEDRUNNER III, respectively. After the completion of the 2008 season on the Baltic Sea, she went to Poland for a conversion, before arriving in Greece just in time for the summer of 2009. In her first three seasons in Greece, she was deployed on the Piraeus-Serifos-Sifnos-Milos-Kimolos-Folegandros line on the Western Cyclades. She stopped services in Kimolos and in Folegandros in 2012, and was laid-up the following year in the Elefsina Bay as the Greek economic crisis began to hit her company, with only the SPEEDRUNNER III operating that year. However, she returned to service in 2014, being deployed on the Piraeus-Paros-Naxos line. In 2015 she returned to the Piraeus-Serifos-Sifnos-Milos line. In 2016 she extended her service to Kimolos, Folegandros and Sikinos, thus serving the Piraeus-Serifos-Sifnos-Milos-Kimolos-Folegandros-Sikinos line, and later that year she was sold to the Andros-based company Golden Star Ferries. She was renamed SUPERRUNNER and she began operations on the Rafina-Tinos-Mykonos-Paros-Naxos-Ios-Santorini line in 2017. In 2021 she was sold to Sea Jets, was renamed SUPERRUNNER JET, and was deployed on the Thessaloniki-Skiathos-Skopelos-Alonissos-Mantoudi line on the Sporades, before moving to the Lavrion-Chios-Agios Efstratios-Limnos-Kavala line and finally on the Heraklion-Rethymnon-Santorini-Ios-Naxos-Paros-Mykonos line. In 2022 she returned to the Western Cyclades, as she was deployed on the Piraeus-Serifos-Sifnos-Milos line. In 2023 she returned to the Thessaloniki-Skiathos-Skopelos-Alonissos-Mantoudi line, and also served the Thessaloniki-Limnos-Mytilene line on the Northeast Aegean Sea.
