“Finncanopus” arrives in the port of Stockholm for the first time

The “Finncanopus” is the newest member of Finnlines’ fleet. The ferry has now moored in Stockholm for the first time.

Following the successful launch of its sister ship ” Finnsirius” in September 2023, the shipping company is continuing to renew and improve its fleet on the Kapellskär – Långnäs – Naantali route.[ds_preview]

The new ferry docked in Stockholm yesterday. Like the “Finnsirius”, which was introduced on the route in September, the “Finncanopus” is a combined cargo and passenger ferry of the Superstar class. Together, the two ships are the largest vessels in the Finnlines fleet. They will significantly increase the capacity and efficiency of traffic between Sweden and Finland.

“We warmly welcome the ‘Finncanopus’ to the port of Kapellskär. With scheduled morning departures from the Port of Kapellskär, the ‘Finncanopus’ is well suited to the Swedish market and meets the needs of both cargo customers and passengers,” said Nicklas Ebersson, Marketing Manager Cargo at Ports of Stockholm, on the occasion of the first call.

“Finncanopus” increases capacity

The two larger vessels are part of Finnlines’ long-term commitment to sustainable shipping and an increase in capacity. The “Finncanopus” follows the “Finnsirius”, which departs from the port of Kapellskär in the morning and Naantali in the evening. Passengers can also travel on the “Finncanopus” without a vehicle.

“The ‘Finncanopus’ is an important part of our efforts to increase sustainability and capacity. This gives our freight customers more flexibility and options while offering passengers a comfortable and modern journey between Sweden, the Åland Islands and Finland,” said Antonio Raimo, Line Manager at Finnlines.

The port of Kapellskär, the northernmost port of Ports of Stockholm, is said to be a strategic hub for freight and passenger traffic between Sweden and Finland. The short distances and short travel times “enable efficient transportation and easy travel for passengers and goods to and from Stockholm and the greater Stockholm area”, according to Ports of Stockholm.
