After numerous tenders that were cancelled due to a lack of bidders, Sea Speed Lines’ ro-pax OLYMPUS has been sold to an anonymous buyer for USD 1.755.100.
The sale follows a lengthy period out of service. She previously served the Piraeus – Rethymnon line. In the summer 2022 she was to be introduced on the Piraeus or Lavrion – Santorini – Anafi line. However, this failed to materialise.
According to unconfirmed information, her buyer is Creta Cargo Lines. With her new owner concentrating on cargo, it seems possible that OLYMPUS will be converted to a ro-ro vessel.
