Endeavor Lines was a company which belonged to Cephalonian shipowner Dimitrios Gianetatos. The company was cooperating mainly with Agoudimos Lines of Dimitrios Agoudimos until the 2003 Autumn, when Mr Gianetatos buys the “Maria G.” from Med Link Lines renaming her as “Elli T.”. Anyway the company didn’t find a route for the ferry, as long as they immediately chartered the “Elli T.” to Maritime Way. Strong rumours about the company were heard again at the end of 2004, when Endeavor Lines announced the purchase of the ferry “New Akashia” from Shin Nihonkai Ferry. The Japanese superferry was deployed on Bari – Igoumenitsa – Patras line on August 2005, bearing the unseen Endeavor Lines livery as their “Ionian Queen”, anyway the ferry was used on Agoudimos Lines’ services and was also marketed and sold by Agoudimos; the first Endeavor Lines passenger service was then inaugurated on 2006 Spring with the “Elli T.” on Brindisi – Corfu – Igoumenitsa – Cephalonia – Patras line. The service is successful, so the company decided to buy also the competitor vessel “Erotokritos” from Maritime Way, which was also deployed on Brindisi line under the name “Erotokritos T.” offering daily departures from each port. After this move, Dimitrios Gianetatos declared in an interview to the friends of “Efoplistis” magazine, that surely the younger sisters of “Ionian Queen” would arrive in Greece, as long as they are superb vessels; I expected that he could have been the buyer of these vessels, but in 2008 the ferry that entered Endeavor Lines service was the “Ionian Queen” itself, deployed on Brindisi – Corfu – Igoumenitsa – Cephalonia – Patras line and rerouting the “Elli T.” on Brindisi – Corfu – Igoumenitsa line. Anyway that year Endeavor Lines bought a fourth ferry, the “New Sea World Express Ferry”, which arrived at Perama for refit on July 2009 as the “Princess T.”. The refit work didn’t proceed and for both 2009 and 2010 seasons the service was the same of 2008, with two vessels on Brindisi – Patras via Igoumenitsa and Cephalonia, and one on Brindisi – Corfu – Igoumenitsa, usually the “Ionian Queen” on Patras line and the other two alternating. At the end of 2010 the “Erotokritos” was sold for scrap, but the “Princess T.” didn’t enter service neither on 2011, leaving the company with a two-ship service on Brindisi line. Some rumours started about financial troubles of the Company, which answered with a press statement declaring that they would continue to invest on Italy – Greece trade, introducing also the “Princess T” before the end of the year. This statement, anyway, proved to be an “excusatio non petita”, as long as the “Elli T” was chartered out for 2012 Summer, reducing the Italy – Greece line to a single ship, the “Ionian Queen”, working mainly on Brindisi – Corfu – Igoumenitsa, with some weekly trips also to Cephalonia, Zakinthos and Patras. At the end of the Summer the Company ceased their services.
