Anek Lines<.> of Crete is now in discussions with shipyards for the construction of two new ferry vessels for Dane Sea Lines<.> – Anek has about a 50% stake in the Dodecanissos ferry line.

Superfast Ferries quickly informed the ministry that it would be willing to place a new fast-ferry vessel on the Piraeus-Kos-Rhodes route and cut present passenger fares on that route by 19%.
The company also proposed to place a new vessel on the Piraeus-Chania route and promised to reduce present fares by 23.5% if the ministry approved the proposal….
