In 2007, Fast Ferries started operating routes on the Rafina - Andros - Tinos - Mykonos line with the passenger and vehicle ferry THEOLOGOS P., a modern ship only 7 years old. This addition significantly improved the coastal connection between Rafina and the islands of Andros, Tinos, and Mykonos, offering unprecedented services not only on this route but also in our overall coastal shipping.

  • In 2012, another ship of equivalent level, AIKATERINI P., was added to the same route, aiming to make at least two daily departures from both Rafina and the islands, operating year-round.
  • Since August 2015, Fast Ferries added FAST FERRIES ANDROS to its fleet, offering even more routes and schedule options.
  • In 2016, Fast Ferries expanded to Naxos, and since 2020, it also serves Paros.
  • In 2021, the luxury high-speed ferry Thunder was added to the fleet.
  • Starting from the summer of 2023, FAST FERRIES operates the route Piraeus - Syros - Mykonos - Paros - Ios - Santorini - Heraklion, Crete with the Thunder.
