IONIAN STAR Ex. BOHUS Is Sailing To Piraeus Soon

By | 2019 Newsletter week 35 | No Comments

Color Line’s BOHUS is ready to sail -within the next few days- for Piraeus as she was purchased -a few months ago- by Red Star Ferries.

The ship was renamed IONIAN STAR and she left the port of Sandefjord for Piraeus where she is expected to arrive within the next few days.

The classic ferry is expected to be introduced between Brindisi (Italy) – Valona (Albania) and she will probably replace her older fleet mate RED STAR 1 (5.762gt/1965).

IONIAN STAR until recently served the Sandefjord-Stromstad run and she was replaced by COLOR HYBRID.

She is also a sister ship to Seajets AQUA SOLUTION which was purchased in 2018, while her other fleet mate EUROPEAN STAR is still at the port of Brindisi without having any service for the summer of 2019.
