Stena Line's newest E-Flexer, Stena Estelle, will come into service at the beginning of September 2022. The ship is 240 meters long and sails on the Baltic Sea between Karlskrona in Sweden and Gdynia in Poland. It can accommodate 1200 passengers. Special aspect: this ferry is quite economical.
Sustainable E-Flexers from Stena Line
The Swedish Stena Line is known for its energy-efficient and state-of-the-art ferries. The ‘E' in E-Flexer stands for efficiency, which is definitely true. The E-Flexer is very economical for such a large ship. With 20% less horsepower, the ship reaches the same speed. This enormous ship achieves the high return due to the hydrodynamic shape of the hull and smart solutions for the rudder and the bow thruster.
All these innovations mean significant savings on fuel consumption. In addition -with a view of the future- the E-Flexers are already prepared to sail on battery hybrid or on natural gas (LNG). A coating with an eco-friendly paint has also been considered.
The new energy-efficient E-Flexer is a nice place to stay at. The beautiful Scandinavian interior and panoramic view make your crossing a true experience. Of course, duty free shopping is a must on an overseas ferry. Or watch a movie in the Movie lounge and let the kids play in dedicated play areas. The en-suit cabins are fully equipped, so relax…
