Stena Estelle will be one of the longest E-Flexer ferries built by AVIC Wehai Shipyard

Stena Line´s newest E-Flexer, Stena Estelle, is set to begin service on 4 September on the route between Karlskrona, Sweden and Gdynia, Poland.

The ferry was built by AVIC Weihai Shipyard in China and has since moved to the Remontowa shipyard in Gdansk, Poland so that final adjustments can be made before it begins service.

Stena Estelle was designed as a sister to Stena Ebba and both vessels are the longest E-Flexers to be built to date. Each of the 240-metre-long ships can accommodate 1,200 passengers and have 263 cabins and 3,600 lane metres freight capacity.

“We are very excited to introduce our new ferry Stena Estelle, which will boost our offer for both freight customers and passengers,” said Marek Kiersnowski, trade director for the Baltic Sea South at Stena Line. “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.”
