Slow Boat To Piraeus

The inhabitants of Funchal could notice the slowest fast ferry ever passing their island. The vessel is Bridgemans Trinidad LP’s OCEAN FLOWER 2, which was purchased in 2017 for the Trinidad -Tobago route.

She is under tow by the Portuguese tug MONTE DA LUZ, from Curaçao to Piraeus. Seajets is the company that purchased her.
