Stena Line christened its new E-Flexer ferry Stena Ebba during a naming ceremony at Karlskrona in Sweden on 11 January 2023.

Stena Ebba, which first debuted on 2 January 2023, operates between Karlskrona and Gdynia in Poland. The christening ceremony was attended by godmother Ulrica Messing, the governor of the Blekinge region in Sweden, and delegates from Stena Line.

“Today, with the inauguration of the Stena Ebba on the Gdynia-Karlskrona route, as well as the earlier introduction of its sister ship Stena Estelle, we are beginning a new phase in the development of our region,” said Marek Kiersnowski, trade director of the Baltic Sea South region at Stena Line at the event. “We are pleased to be able to offer our customers the most modern vessels in this market. The modernisation of our fleet will enable a significant capacity increase, which is important not only for us and our customers, but also for the entire region and the countries we connect.”

Stena Ebba is 240 metres long and accommodates 1,200 passengers and 200 vehicles, similar to its sister ship Stena Estelle, which launched in September 2022. The two vessels will allow the line to continue to expand its services in Sweden and Poland.

The vessel has shore power capacity and its onboard spaces feature panoramic windows and Scandinavian-style interiors.

“The addition of our new modern Stena Ebba ferry in the South Baltic Sea is Stena Line’s response to customer demand in a dynamic economic area that continues to grow,” said Niclas Mårtensson, CEO of Stena Line. “We have operated this ferry route for more than 25 years and with our new E-Flexer ferries we will enable our partners to expand their business through an enhanced access to European markets and supply chains.”
