Anes Ferrys’ PROTEUS is set to take over the Igoumenitsa-Corfu-Paxoi ferry route, replacing Kerkyra Seaways’ former vessel, HERMES. The latter recently changed ownership, being acquired by the Croatian company Jadrolinija and renamed VELA LUKA.

PROTEUS will be operating on a short-term charter for approximately four months on the aforementioned route until Kerkyra Seaways introduces a new vessel to replace her.

Having concluded its services on the Evia (Mandoudi) – Sporades route last April, PROTEUS brings a rich history, being constructed in Greece back in 1973. With a capacity to accommodate 372 passengers and 110 cars, PROTEUS is well-equipped to provide a seamless and efficient ferry service along the Igoumenitsa-Corfu-Paxoi line during this transitional period.

Keep an eye out for updates as Kerkyra Seaways prepares to introduce their next vessel to enhance the ferry experience on this popular route.
