Aegean Speed Lines is a Greek ferry company operating fast ferries between Piraeus and the Cyclades.

History

Aegean Speed Lines were formed in 2005 as a joint venture between Sea Containers and the Eugenides Group. Aegean Speed Lines were the first ferry company in Greece to use a European Union flag vessel on a domestic route following deregulation of ferry services in Greece.[1] Sea Containers sold is share in 2006 leaving the Eugenides Group as the major shareholder.

Fleet

Aegean Speed Lines began operations using a single high speed catamaran Speedrunner I. Following two successful seasons a Fincantieri built monohull Speedrunner II joined the fleet in 2007. On 2008, the company sold Speedrunner 1. In 2009 two more monohulls Speedrunner III and Speedruner IV joined the fleet.
