On December 5, 2021 Cretan Cargo Lines’ latest acquisition, ORCADIA (former SATURN), arrived -under tow- at Spanopoulos Shipyards (Perama) ending her long journey from St. Margaret’s Hope, Orkney.
She was purchased from Pentland Ferries and served as a freighter around Orkney and the Pentland Firth since 2015. Originally, she was operated by Caledonian Mac Brayne (1978-2011). She will join Cretan Cargo’s fleet on the domestic market next season as a passenger/roro ferry.
Cretan Cargo Lines is active in RoRo transportation in Greece since 2013 and owns 3 RoRo vessels (IOSIF K, TALOS, NEARCHOS).
