In the mid 1997's the H/S/F Ikarus is launched in Sweden on May 5th and arrives with great pride and enthusiasm in Greece, from the FOSEN shipyard in Norway. In cooperation with other Greek ship-owners Minoan Lines establishes the company “Minoan Lines Highspeed Ferries S.A.” during the same year. To boost ferry tickets Greece section, the Catamaran Ferry Highspeed 1 and F/B Ariadne are deployed on the Piraeus-Cyclades route.
