Last year Stena announced a newbuild contract of four RoPax ferry vessels with a planned delivery schedule during 2019 and 2020. The contract also contains an option for another four vessels to be ordered. The four vessels are being built at the AVIC Shipyard in China and the plan is to locate the vessels on the Irish Sea, specifically on Stena Line’s routes to and from its expanding Belfast hub.
Probably the most complete resource on the internet of what is known so-far about Stena Line’s next generation of RoPax passenger and vehicle ferry, the Chinese built Stena E-Flexer class. Includes technical information and regular updates (including photographs) on the progress of the construction of the 4 new vessels.
