The 117 meter long, 1215 dwt ro-ro passenger ferry Panagia Tinou suffered water ingress while berthed in Piraeus, Greece. The Panagia Tinou had been docked in Piraeus since 2015 when it had been seized by authorities for unpaid debts. The ferry remained in disrepair when it suffered water ingress along the starboard hull. The ferry developed a list of 40 degrees and was at risk of capsizing as it partially sank at the pier. No reports of injuries as there were no crew on board. Authorities dispatched several tugs to the scene while booms were placed around the vessel to contain any pollution released.
This is not the first time the Panagia Tinou had been in trouble. On October 15, 1987, the ro-ro ferry had lost power when an alternator failed and was blown ashore east of Folkestone, England. The following year the ferry collided with a trawler off Boulogne, France.
