On April 17, 2022 Aegean Cargo Management’s roro AYSHE left Greece, following a 2-year laid up at Perama.

The large Japanese-built vessel is the fastest roro in the world (30 knots) and was chartered to the Turkish Ecol from 2014 to 2019 for service on the Turkey – France (Sète) line.

In May 2019, the charter was ended and the ship returned to Greece and offered for sale. She remained at Perama repair zone until April 2022, where she was transferred to Oristars Shipping Co Ltd.

The ship flew the flag of Panama and was sent to China for service between China and Japan. The vessel is currently at the port of Longyan awaiting refit and repairs.

Since the middle of May 2019, the Japanese built roro AYSHE of Kostas Agapitos is laid up at the Perama repair zone.

In 2014 she was chartered to the Turkish ECOL for the Turkey – France (Sète) run, a route that was fit exactly to her characteristics and potentials.

However, her charter expired last May and the large roro was laid up in Greece. Since then she was put up for sale but without success so far, which means that a great ship may end up to the scrapyard.
