Saronic Ferries (Greece) announced a partnership with C-Job Naval Architects (naval engineering firm) for the design of what will be the first all-electric ro-pax (car and passenger) ship to sail in Greece.

The newbuild will have the capacity for 800 passengers. In addition to its propulsion, it will incorporate state-of-the-art elements in energy-saving solutions as well as a first-class interior design, with maximum comfort at no additional cost to the environment.

The vessel is expected to enter service in 2026 and serve the route Piraeus/Athens-Aegina Island-Agistri Island, although it is conditional on Port Piraeus having the necessary electrical connections by then.

The other route operated by Saronic Ferries links Piraeus with Aegina, Agistri, Methana (Peloponnese peninsula/mainland Greece) and Poros Island.
