Aegean Speed Lines was founded in 2005. Initially the company was a result of the cooperation between the Eugenides Group and a UK company, called "Sea Containers", but as early as from the second year of its operation "Sea Containers" withdrew, leaving the main share holding to the Eugenides Group and other investors.
It is a company that has evolved rapidly since then and nowadays it has three speedboats SpeedRunner II, III and IV. These run daily schedules to most the Cyclades offering fast itineraries and high quality services.
The aim of the company is to meet the needs not only of the visitors but also of the local residents and to enhance the touristic growth.
Furthermore Aegean Speed Lines has been honoured as "The best shipping company of year 2009" by the Lloyds List for its high quality services.

Aegean Speedlines reviews
For having experienced (reluctantly) the Seajets company a few days earlier, I can assure you that the service offered by Aegean Speedlines has nothing to do with it! Already the SpeedRunner is much bigger compared to the boats mostly used by Seajets. Suddenly you feel less of the swell, on strong windy days. On the contrary, I was on the verge of falling asleep, as if rocked by the sea. I did not see these 4 hours pass. The seat was comfortable, you have legroom and the cabin is relatively clean. Between vehicles and pedestrians, boarding is well organized, we guide you nicely and you will find a place for your suitcases. No worries also for online registration, which gives you access to a QR Code to place in the wallet. Frankly, I have nothing to reproach them with and yet it was the height of summer!
The ferry was emtpy but got a table with 4 strangers
[Translated from German]
The whole ferry was very empty, but we had tickets at a fully booked table. Because of Corona, we then moved another table. Next time, as the provider, you should maybe distribute the seats to the entire capacity of the ferry. LG
The on-line check-in process turned out to be very difficult to do because of the system's inability. When it was finally possible, seven people were given seven separated positions.
If you are in an advantageous location, check-in from a travel agency, you should clearly mention it on your site and not give yourself the illusion of the passenger's autonomy.
7 people from 2 families ended up in 7 remote locations.
The holidays start from the ship and you manage to destroy their beginning.
In the future I'm not going to re-select you.
And of course feedback and evaluation is not easy either.
The system again does not allow it
We have made several trips and in general we are very satisfied with the welcome, crew, seat. An improvement in the offer of snacks will not be negligible.
We traveled on speedrunner 4 from Paros to Pireus. We were vey happy with the trip. The boat was not too crouwded, seats were very cofortable, the trip felt good. Additionally the crew was very welcoming and nice. The only strange thing is that they only check the tickets after you are on board and after the boat already started to leave the port, so for the elderly or simply for people who are not the best at getting around it could be a bit confusing. HOWEVER - I imagine that if we had any doubt we could have asked one of the people on the port if we were standing in the correct line (and plus I think that this issue is true for all ferry companies because I did not see that tickets were checked in the other lines as well)
Great ferries. The only problem we had was the ticketing system. We are a family 2 adults 2 kids and when the tickets were issued our kids seats were not seated near ours. Ridiculous considering the kids ages are 3 and 5.
Very nice people. I forgot a bag on a trip from Sifnos to Milos and they found it and gave it back to me very quickly. The boat was clean and comfortable.
The ride itself and the crew members were nice and welcoming..
