After a 12-year lay up in the port of Piraeus, Saronic Gulf and Spanopoulos yards (Ambelakia, Salamis), roro PANAGIA AGIASSOU sank on the spot.

The old Japanese ferry was laid up at Ambelakia next to Nel Lines’ TAXIARHIS (1976) and THEOFILOS (1975) since January 2018 awaiting her fate, while there were a few attempts for her removal that failed.
