New ferry boats?

by sethuk » 15 Aug 2018, 14:41

Greetings..
Does anyone have any information about the FBs, Agia Roumeli & Calypso, that ANENDYK have purchased?
Or have they been sold on as not fit for the South Crete seas.
Seems to have happened before with an FB bought in Japan.
Does Stavros still ply his weary way to Agia Roumeli each late evening and each early morning?
Cheers

The Agia Roumeli (formerly Aegna) was still docked in Souda on 11 August, and the Calypso (formerly Sea Express) still is.

If the Agia Roumeli is already in Sfakia now I don't know. But it might be there already, since I see a new vessel moored in the new harbour every now and then, and also the timetable indicates there is a ferry boat for foot passengers only in operation 5 times a day between Chora Sfakion and Loutro.
All the best,

Cheers Erno
You would think that ANENDYK would keep the world informed.
Let's hope they will arrive in 2019!

Just seen a fully restored Neptune arriving in Sfakia (17:00). Sporting a brand new paint job with passengers from Loutro. Looks like there is life after death ( for boats at least!)
