Capacity1000 passengers and 170 cars
Year when built2006

The Achaeos, built recently, belongs to the Blu Navy shipping company, and took the place of the bigger Primrose, the latter being clumsy to steer in a crossing like that between the Island of Elba and the mainland.

The Achaeos was built in 2006 in the Greek port of Piraeus, and initially did the Igoumenitsa-Kerkyra crossing; since March 2011 it has been doing the Piombino-Portoferraio one.
