Although Stena Line hasn't made any official announcement yet, it is believed that the still unnamed E-Flexer will most likely operate in the Baltic. Over 25m longer than the standard E-Flexer Class, the Mk II version has a length of 239.7m and 27.8m beam. The intake increases from 3,100 to 3,600 lanemetres on three decks with a separate car deck for 200 instead of 120 cars.
The 1C Ice Class vessel has a capacity of 1,200 persons (passengers and crew) with a total of 263 passenger cabins, equivalent to 1,036 berths. The yard is setting ever more ambitious delivery targets – the first lengthened E-Flexer should be ready for delivery in March 2022, to be followed by the second Mk II version in late August of the same year.
As recently as last week, the Chinese builder delivered CÔTE D'OPALE, the fifth E-Flexer. Ships number six and nine – SALAMANCA and SANTOÑA – will be further modified versions, being LNG-powered and adapted for long-term charter by Brittany Ferries.
