The Swedish shipping publication ShipPax Information, which offers specialist valuation services and undertakes feasibility studies in the passenger shipping industry with nearly 40 years of experience, awarded BLUE STAR PATMOS, offering a great distinction for Greece and the Greek shipping industry.
BLUE STAR PATMOS received two awards for its exceptional overall design and for its outstanding interior concept during the 11th annual Shipping Ferry Conference, held from the 23rd until the 25th April 2013 in Rotterdam by the ShipPax magazine. The first award is assigned for the overall ship’s design as developed by the team of Attica Group and the second one for acknowledging the outstanding aesthetics of the vessel’s interior as designed by the architectural team Molindris & Associates, basic partner of all Attica Group’s projects.
BLUE STAR PATMOS was constructed at Daewoo Shipbuilding & Marine Engineering Co Ltd shipyards, S. Korea, based on the latest technology available and was delivered in June 2012. The new vessel performed its first journey in July on the route Piraeus – Chios – Mytilene and since then operates daily sailings with utmost respect to its passengers and hauliers. The facilities of the vessel include 90 passenger cabins (326 beds), 405 air type seats, comfortable public areas and all prerequisites in order to offer an elegant and pleasant journey throughout the year.
Blue Star Ferries has established a new era for maritime transport in Greece and continues by resisting to the country’s debt crisis with a 70 million Euro investment initiative, aiming at providing high quality services to its passengers through new, modern, and fast vessels and contributing to the growth of Greece’s island economy.
