El. Venizelos

The “Eleftherios Venizelos” is a 175-meter ferry of the Anek Lines that was chartered by a consortium of Sardinian entrepeneurs to offer a low-cost alternative to the vessels of the Moby and Corsica Sardinia on the route between Livorno and Olbia.
El Venizelos, IMO 7907673, porto di Livorno
The “El. Venizelos” is the third ship used on this route, after two other ferries (“Lato” and “Sophocles V.”) had technical troubles during the season. Her last run was on Thursday 28, leaving thousand of passengers stranded in Olbia. Unpaid bills are probably the reason behind this sudden stop: however, the next day, the ship was already on her way back to Piraeus.
Sophocles V., IMO 8916607, port of Livorno
Here you can see the other ferry, the “Sophocles V.”, leaving Livorno for Olbia last June.

I don't think I have ever seen ferries that are so huge!

Both of them look massive!

Ditto, William!

They are huge, indeed! They remind me of The Color Line ferries in Scandinavia.

So enormous!

I agree with William, they look so huge.

The light on your photo of EV makes it look good, maybe in contrast with the sleek white of SV.

A wonderful light on your first photo.

You even caught the ferry with its stern doors open.

La riprova che non sempre basso costo equivale a qualità! Ciao, Arianna

Sometimes the low cost option is not the best one!

I'm not much of a low cost fan. But I love the light in the first shot!
