The publication looks at the development and introduction of the Superfast ships operating in the Adriatic and Aegean seas. The distinctive and slick Superfast vessels built in Germany and Finland transformed the Greek ferry business from the mid-1990s until the present. The book contains unique first-hand accounts of the design development, construction and operations of the Superfast fleet and the challenges overcome. It describes the expansion of the parent company, Attica Group, and its development of the Blue Star Ferries brand, as well as the re-organisation of the ferry services in Greek waters and Attica’s recent acquisition of Hellenic Seaways. Many of the twelve Superfast ships have been cascaded to various parts of the world, including Australia, France, Canada and the Baltic and their subsequent careers are included as well
