Viking Line

New ferry from STX Turku in 2012 !
The cruise ferry is about 210 metres in length with a gross tonnage of 57 000. The ship, which has a top speed of close to 23 knots, is planned to hold 2800 passengers and will be operated by a 200-member crew. The vessel, which is full of innovative and new solutions, has 870 passenger cabins. It has almost 1300 lane-metres for trucks and a separate car deck with approximately 500 lane-metres for passenger cars. Additional room for passenger cars can be found on the hoistable car decks. The cruise ferry will operate on a route between Turku and Stockholm.
The insulation materials come from ISOVER, for a total amount over 100 000 m², essentially for fire protection and comfort purposes. More than 12 000 m of U Protect Pipe sections were also used. This leads to a reduction of weight about 220 tons.
The new cruise ferry will be the most environmentally friendly big passenger vessel to date. The agreement includes an option for a sister ship. The ship will be built at Turku shipyard for delivery at the beginning of 2013.
