Highspeed

Operated by Hellenic Seaways on the Mykonos Thira route

The Hellenic Seaways Highspeed fleet consists of three ferries - Highspeed 4, 5 and 6. The introduction of these vessels has offered a huge advancement and innovation for passenger travelling in the region, decreasing the crossing times by about 50% as well as increasing safety and the onboard experience.

Highspeed 4 built in Australia in 2000 has a passenger capacity of 1004 and can hold 188 vehicles in its garages. Highspeed 5 is the newest of the three ships, was built in 2005 and can accommodate 809 passengers and up to 154 vehicles. Highspeed 6 is the biggest of the fleet with a 968 passenger capacity and space for 260 vehicles and has previously operated as the Milenium with Trasmediterranea.

Onboard Cabins / Reserved Seating

As these highspeed ships generally operate on shorter crossings, there are no cabin facilities available. Seating can be pre-booked and comes in a choice of Economy, Business and VIP class, depending on the service you are travelling on.

Please Note: Whilst we have taken great care in making our Highspeed guide as accurate as possible, onboard facilities, services and entertainment may vary depending on the date and time of year that you travel, facilities mentioned may change without notification and ferry companies reserve the right to operate vessels other than those mentioned at time of booking without prior notification.

  • "Ferry to Naxos"

    I was pleasantly surprised at how easy the ferry system was. I had pre booked my ticket so all I had to do was rock up. Being shoulder season it was a pretty quiet embarkation and I didn’t really need to be there as early as I was. The ferry is expansive and very comfortable. Great start to my island hopping !

  • "Very good service"

    Very good service, great boat and friendly staff. Only caveat is on the online check-in where you cant choose seats and the system allocates randomly so you may end up not sitting next to your co-travellers.

  • "Amazing Crew"

    We were delighted by the style and comfort of the ship which also had good food and drink choices for the journey. Unfortunately, the sea was rough and passengers became ill. Information was provided throughout by the Captain and the Crew provided an outstanding service throughout. Thank you.

  • "Best choice ferry"

    We have just spent 2 weeks travelling the Greek Islands and used most of the ferry services and Hellenic was by far the best and at times cheapest. The catering also won by a million to one in comparison. They were extremely efficient but friendly and professional from start of trip to finish. Thanks for the experience Hellenic.
