The entire quintet was ordered with the backing of long term charters to Hyundai Merchant Marine (HMM), for whom the APOLLONAS II will trade as HYUNDAI PRIVILEGE, following first three sisters HYUNDAI PRESTIGE, HYUNDAI PREMIUM and HYUNDAI PARAMOUNT.

The HYUNDAI PRIVILEGE is to join the Far East – ECSA service offered jointly by PIL, K-Line, NYK and HMM under the respective route names ‘SSA1’, ‘AESAL1’ and ‘NHX1’.

In early June, the five-ship series will be concluded with the delivery of the AKTOR. This last ship, also scheduled to join the Far East – ECSA trade lane, will come on stream under the charter name HYUNDAI PLATINUM.
