Karlskrona-Gdynia route receives a boost in capacity and efficiency, with the two largest E-Flexer ferries being deployed in 2022.
Stena Line´s newest addition to the fleet – Stena Estelle – has already sailed around half the world. Departing from its building shipyard in East China in June, the ferry passed through Singapore, India, the Middle East and Gibraltar, before setting course towards the Baltic Sea. Currently Stena Estelle stays at Remontowa shipyard in Gdansk for the final adjustments, so it can take up its regular service on Gdynia-Karlskrona. The first departure is planned for 4 September from Gdynia, and the new ship’s schedule is already available for bookings.
“We are very excited to introduce our new ferry Stena Estelle, which will boost our offer for both freight customers and passengers. This all-new vessel is the most modern in our fleet and unmatched in capacity, efficiency design and service setup. With new ferries such as the Stena Estelle and its twin vessel Stena Ebba, which will arrive in Poland in November this year, we are opening up new opportunities not only for the development of our company and the Gdynia-Karlskrona route, but also for the growth of our customers’ businesses in this part of Europe”, says Marek Kiersnowski, Trade Director Baltic Sea South, Stena Line.
Stena Estelle and its sister Stena Ebba are the two largest E-Flexer ferries ever built and will provide a boost to the Karlskrona-Gdynia route’s capacity. The 240 meter long ship offers 263 cabins, ample space for 1,200 passengers and an overall freight capacity of 3,600 lane meters, which means 15% more cargo versus current E-Flexers. The connection between Poland and Sweden is a prime example of the further increasing customer demand in the Southern and Eastern Baltic Sea area, which Stena Line so far accommodated with significant investments in a modern fleet, and an all new route between Nynäshamn and Hanko, Finland.
