- The first of two new RoPaxes will start operating on the Naantali–Långnäs–Kapellskär route in autumn 2023.
- The vessels are part of a EUR 500 million investment programme.
- FINNSIRIUS and FINNCANOPUS will significantly enhance the company’s passenger experience. Both vessels will have a capacity of 1,100 passengers, which is about twice the capacity of existing vessels on the route. The cargo capacity will increase from just over 4,000 lane metres in the current vessels to 5,200 lane metres.
- The new vessels will feature high-quality restaurants, a sauna and spa section, business and lounge facilities, extensive shopping areas and a variety of other services. A lot of the processes will be digitalised, and self-service kiosks will make it easy to handle things on board the paperless ships.
“Superstar RoPaxes will be larger than the existing Star class and they will be Finnlines’ flagships both in terms of size and technology,” says Antonio Raimo, Line Manager at Finnlines.
