ANTIGONI (Re-)Launched

On November 3, 2020, the Greek Elthom shipyard launched the fully upgraded ferry ANTIGONI of the Saronic Ferries consortium (Nova Ferries – 2Way ferries). The ship underwent extensive conversion, in order to be transformed into a closed type ferry and is expected to be introduced in the Saronic Gulf.

She was purchased in July 2020 from Edipsos Ferries and operated on the Edipsos-Arkitsa line as the POSEIDONAS. The ship was built in 2010 in Perama (Atsalaki shipyard), she is 735gt, 77,10 meters long and 17 meters wide. Her carrying capacity is for 590 passengers and 120 cars.

In the background is also seen the German-build NISSOS CHRISSI (ex-RUNGHOLT) of the Cretan Blue Cruises, which is also converted at the same shipyard.
