Chandris Line entered passenger shipping in 1922 with the steamer Chimara, which ran a coastal service between Piraeus and Corinth.

HISTORY -- The third Nevasa was built for BI in 1956 as a troopship under government specifications. She was followed by her near sister, the Oxfordshire, built for the Bibby Line in 1957. Unfortunately both ships' careers as troopships were cut short as the result of the government's termination of national service and the increasing transfer of troops by air.
