@Peter: Thank You once again! As always, a real pleasure! I just love this „cute“ orange ferry! And of course, the greek sun as well as the intensive and deepblue Sea of the Cyclades help a lot. Not only for shipspotting... 😎

@storm1379: Thanks a lot for the link! I have already seen this video a few times. Amazing indeed. This rather small – but beautiful – ferry is an absolutely faithful servant of the Western Cyclades. During the whole year, also in really adverse weather conditions, she reliably connects even the smallest islands with the port of Piraeus. So the ship truly is a significant factor of the economy of the Aegean archipelago.

Unfortunately, the greek port infrastructure (especially of the smaller islands) is still not the very best. So the captains and the crew often have to struggle hard to serve the islands, but they are doing an excellent job, which cannot be praised high enough.

PS: Do you also know the following video, recorded at the small island Kimolos?
