Stena Ebba ferry was named during an official ceremony where godmother Ulrica Messing, governor of Sweden's Blekinge region, smashed a bottle of champagne against the hull of the vessel.

The event follows the introduction of sistership Stena Estelle in September 2022. With the 2 new vessels launched on the route, the relations between Poland and Sweden continue to grow.

Niclas Martensson, CEO of Stena Line said the addition of their new modern Stena Ebba ferry in the South Baltic Sea was the line’s "response to customer demand in a dynamic economic area that continues to grow.”

“We have operated this ferry route for more than 25 years and with our new E-Flexer ferries we will enable our partners to expand their business through an enhanced access to European markets and supply chains”.

Stena Ebba ferry is among the largest in regular operations in the Baltic Sea. She is 240 m long and offers space for 1200 people along with up to 200 trucks. With her 3600 lanemetres of deck space for wheeled cargo, capacity has increased with no less than a 60% boost versus the previous ship on the route.

Stena Ebba is a completely new vessel and she recently arrived on the Gdynia (Poland)-Karlskrona (Sweden) route from the shipyard. The ferry is energy-efficient due to her optimized design as well as more sustainable, not least by the possibility of using shore power connectivity while docked in port. The interior was designed in a Scandinavian style with panoramic windows.
