Kerkyra Lines is eventually the mysterious buyer of the small FERRY MISHIMA (271gt/1995) of the Japanese Sakido Kisen Co which operates on the Sasebo-Sakido-Ejima-Hirashima-Tomozumi line.

The small ferry was built in Japan in 1995 (Mukai Shipyard Nagasaki). She is 271gt (77 dwt), 44,24m long, 8,60m wide and 3,39m draught. Her carrying capacity is for 167 passengers, 4 trucks and 2 private cars. She has 2 Daihatsu 6DLM 225 diesel engines (2.000 bhp) and her service speed is 13,8 knots.

The ship was purchased for USD 500.000 and she is expected to be leave Nagasaki in October.
After her conversion in Greece she will probably be introduced on the Corfu-Othonoi run.
