Following an incredible sequence of events, it was eventually decided that Anek Lines’ PREVELIS will continue to serve on the Piraeus-Sitia-Kasos-Karpathos-Diafani-Chalki-Rodos and Piraeus-Santorini Anafi subsidized lines since July 22, 2022.
The former Japanese-built ferry stopped sailing on July 11 after 12 years of service on the above line and was about to be replaced by the Sea Speed Ferries’ RoPax OLYMPUS.
However, OLYMPUS failed to pass the Hellenic Ministry of Shipping inspections and never sailed. A sad development that forced the Ministry to find an immediate solution by re-activating Prevelis, at least for the rest of the summer season 2022.
