C-Job Naval Architects was selected by Saronic Ferries (Greek fast-ferry company) to design a fully electric Ro-Pax (roll-on/roll-off passenger) ferry, which is expected to be the first of its kind in Greece.

The move is aligned with the company's goal to operate an emission-free fleet across all routes by 2040.

C-Job Naval Architects has already delivered an initial design of the vessel to Saronic Ferries.

The newbuild ferryboat will have max passenger capacity 800 and will be fitted with a fully electric propulsion as well as incorporate other modern energy-saving solutions.

Port of Piraeus-Athens (Greece)

The Ro-Pax ship will recharge at Port Piraeus/Athens (Greece).

The vessel is scheduled to join Saronic Ferries’ fleet in 2026 and is expected to operate between homeport Piraeus and the Saronic islands Agistri and Aegina.
