"HELLAS LIBERTY": New president for the Maritime Museum - 2024 Mar 07

On 27 February 2024, George A.Tsavliris was elected President of the Board of Directors of the floating Maritime Museum "HELLAS LIBERTY" for the next three years.
"HELLAS LIBERTY" (ex SS Arthur M. Huddel, launched in 1943) is a Liberty ship which survived World War II. In 2008 she was transferred to Greece and after repairs she was converted into a maritime museum.

Tsavliris Salvage Group was involved in the towage of the ship from Norfolk, Virginia, USA to Piraeus port. General repairs and conversions took place at Perama and Salamis during 2009 and 2010, including installation of a new rudder and propeller. In June 2010 she was presented to the public in her restored form in Piraeus harbor.

Liberty ships represent the history of the resurgence of the Greek merchant shipping fleet following the end of the War.
