I wonder if they are capable of fixing this themselves. When the HIGHSPEED 5 (now HIGHSPEED 7) burned out, it was sent to Fincantieri for a rebuild: http://faktaomfartyg.se/highspeed_5_2005.htm

I did wonder that and besides you are right- anything that floats & arrives in Greece is usually converted into a ferry. That's how industrious the Greeks are.

Matty, my guess is that the USN operated her for the UAE. In any case, she will now be rebuilt for commercial service for Seajets of Greece.

Is she still the USS SWIFT or was she handed over to UAE? It's not clear in the report.

Thanks Cody. I appreciate that. Never heard that in the news.I must have been on vacation around that time.

Hi MattyBoy, I think that's HSV-2 Swift. She fell victim to a rocket attack.
