The 143 meter long ro-ro passenger ferry Prevelis sustained water ingress in the Saronic Gulf near Saint George Island, Greece. The ferry was proceeding with 127 passengers and 67 crew when it suffered water ingress in the engine room. The crew was able to bring the flooding under control and alerted authorities.
The Greek Coast Guard dispatched three vessels to escort the Prevelis as the ferry return back to Piraeus under its own power. No reports of injuries, damage or pollution released. The ferry remains detained in port until repairs are completed.
