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.
