It’s often very difficult to find accurate information about small ferries like this; about the “Agapitos A.” I don’t know neither technical specifications and builder, nor I’m sure if she was owned by Agapitos since the beginning of her career, but I think so and I think she was always used on Corfu – Igoumenitsa line. I can say, however, that she appeared in an old Greek movie, “Η αρχόντισα και ο αλήτης”, which should be as “The lady and the tramp” in English, where she was pictured during her classic Igoumenitsa – Corfu service; was then sold in 2003 to a Lebanese company and still seems in service. Unlike the common use on Greek landing-crafts, the “Agapitos A” had the bow name written in Latin characters instead of Greek characters.
