On 12 January, Kerkyra Lines’ EVDOKIA arrived in Amaliapolis (Volos) from Japan and anchored at Kouris Shipyard for conversion.
The small ferry (ex- FERRY MISHIMA) was purchased last September by the Japanese Sakido Kisen Co and began her long voyage – from Nagasaki to Greece – on 7 December 2019.

According to her company, she is not destined for the main Corfu – Igoumenitsa line. She will probably serve the Corfu – Othonoi line.
