Greek sources are reporting that Seajets has added two more high-speed craft to their impressive fleet. This time they purchased the sister-ships OSMAN GAZI 1 and ORHAN GAZI 1 from Turkey’s Istanbul Deniz (IDO).

Both vessels were built in Australia (Austal, Henderson) in 2007 and belong to the Auto Express 88 series. Their carrying capacity is for 1,200 passengers and 225 cars, while they have a top speed of 37.5 knots. With these impressive 6,133 tonners in its fleet, the seemingly unstoppable Seajets will operate within the Aegean Sea with the significant number of 22 high-speed craft.
