In 2000, the Vessel was positioned in the Adriatic Sea to trade between ports in western Greece and Italy under the new name MV “Lefka Ori’ (‘White Mountaintops’).

In 2012, the Vessel, under the bareboat charter name MV ‘Antonio L’, along sistership vessel MV ’Sophocles B’, were chartered to Jeju Cruise Lines; while still under conversion in Ulsan in South Korea, charterers defaulted and vessels were arrested and auctioned, and purchased by Hellas 2 Leasing N.E., and were re-positioned to Greece under the original name, MV ‘Lefka Ori’.

In 2015, Blue Star Ferries NAE, a subsidiary of the Attica Group, entered into a long term charter party agreement with the owners of the Vessel, and after extensive upgrading, she is now deployed serving the routes to and from Crete, under a route sharing agreement with ANEK S.A., under her current name MV ‘Blue Galaxy’.

Adventures of a Sinking Ship

Images of Shipwreck MV ‘Panagia Tinou’ in the Port of Piraeus

The vintage ferry MV ‘Panagia Tinou’ started listing in late April 2016, at Gate E3 in the main Port of Piraeus, which is primarily used by ferry boats, passenger vessels and cruiseships. In June, a tender was extended by the Greek government for the removal of the vessel with a maximum bid of €360,000. There were no bidders then as the threshold was deemed too low for any salvage and removal operation. A new tender has been announced with a October 20th, 2016 deadline, but with €160,000 maximum bid, accordingly to the Greek shipping and business newspaper Naftemporiki. No bidders are expected for the new bidding round, as the threshold is considered too low again. It is rumored that if no bidder emerges from the new round, the Port of Piraeus will undertake on its own to remove the vessel.

It’s amazing that six months after the accident, the ferry is allowed to remain at a prime location within the main port, possibly being a cause of an accident, as much as an amusing sight it may be for locals and tourists alike.

We posted pictures of the sinking ferry in out blog in June 2016; the present pictures were taken in the middle of August.

The Naftemporiki articles:

Υπ. Ναυτιλίας: Καμία αδράνεια για την απομάκρυνση του «Παναγία Τήνου» (Ministry of Merchant Marine: No undue delays for the removal of ‘Panagia Tinou’, September 29th, 2016)

ΟΛΠ: Νέος διαγωνισμός για την απομάκρυνση του «Παναγία Τήνου»                      (Port of Piraeus Authority: New tender for the removal of ‘Panagian Tinou’, September 28, 2016)

Images of the shipwreck ferry MV ‘Panagia Tinou’ from our previous posting can be accessed by clicking here and here! It’s a good thing that governments are never efficient; we have taken more than 1,000 pictures of the ship during our business trips to Greece!

The ferry MV ‘Panagia Tinou’ was launched in 1972 in France under the name MV ‘Hengist’ to serve the routes of Dover / Folkestone and Calais / Boulogne. The Vessel has had a long line of owners during her career; since 1992, the Vessel had been plowing the waters of the Aegean Sea, being the source for sweet memories for vacationers and tourists alike. The last owner, Ventouris Sea Lines, defaulted on loans by the government and the Vessel has been impounded for more than two years now, berthed in the Port of Piraeus.
