Ordered by the then newly formed Minoan Flying Dolpins in summer 1999. Changed markings in 2001 when the company changed brand name to Hellas Flying Dolphins to avoid bad publicity for Minoan Lines after the 2000 sinking of Express Samina a couple of miles off Paros Island. Since 2003 she is painted red as all HFD/HSW fast crafts demonstrate the Vodafone brand name.
