According to the Merchant Marine Ministry, the 9 p.m. crash was witnessed and reported by passengers on board, forcing the Ariadne ferry’s captain to return to port.
The ship departed at 01.45 a.m. on Saturday morning after an inspection revealed it had suffered minor damages to its stern that did not compromise its sea worthiness.
