-Golden Star Ferries (2017-2021)

The high speed trimaran SUPERSPEED was built in 2001 in Australia, having been order in 1999 by Australian company White Rabbit. Upon delivery, she became the first passenger trimaran in the world. She began service as the TRIUMPHANT on the Melbourne-Hobart line. In 2002 she was sold to South Korean company Ferry Ulsan, was renamed ULSAN DOLPHIN and began service on the Ulsan-Kitakyushu line, connecting South Korea with Japan. She remained there until 2016, when she was sold to Croatian company Krilo Ferry. After being converted in Rijeka, she began service in 2017 under the name KRILO ECLIPSE, being deployed on the Split-Bol-Korčula-Mijet-Dubrovnik line. After just one season, she was sold to Greek company Golden Star Ferries. She arrived in Greece in late 2017, thus becoming the first-ever trimaran passenger ship in the history of the Greek coastal service. She began a conversion in Perama and in Salamina, during which she was renamed SUPERSPEED. She began service in 2018, being deployed on the Sporades, on the Thessaloniki-Skiathos-Skopelos-Alonissos line. In 2019 she was deployed on the Cyclades by being inserted on the Rafina-Syros-Mykonos-Paros-Naxos-Koufonisi-Amorgos line. Her service there was marred by several engine troubles, which eventually ended her season prematurely after she suffered a major engine failure in Naxos.
