On September 22, 2023 Nel Lines’ TAXIARHIS (ex- UNION HOBART, SEAWAY HOBART, AGIA METHODIA, EUROMANTIQUE) left Ampelakia (Salamis) yards, bound for the scrapyard of Aliaga.

The ship was laid up since 2015 (ports of Lavrion and Ampelakia (Salamis)).

She was built in Norway in 1976 for Union Shipping and she was one of a series of eleven vessels that were built for car/cargo transportation. She arrived in Greece in 1993 purchased by AK Ventouris, while in 1999 she was sold to Nel Lines for the North Aegean run.

She was the last ship of that series that was still alive.
