Castrén & Snellman acted as legal advisor to Finnlines in an arrangement in which Finnlines has signed a loan agreement with Danmarks Skibskredit A/S.

The loan relates to an arrangement in which Finnlines Plc’s fully owned Swedish subsidiary, Rederi Aktiebolaget Nordö-Link, purchased from the Grimaldi Group a Star class passenger-freight vessel, MS Europalink, in accordance with the purchase agreement signed earlier.

MS Europalink will be fitted with exhaust gas scrubbers in mid-March and she will sail under Swedish flag. MS Europalink will start providing the liner services on Malmö–Travemünde route.

The vessel will undergo refurbishment in the public areas and, thus, can even better meet the passengers’ needs. This modern ro-pax vessel was built at Fincantieri Shipyard in Italy in 2007, and it has a capacity of 4,215 lane metres and 554 passengers.
