China Merchants Jinling Shipyard Weihai has cut the first steel for a new Ro-Pax ferry ordered by Finnlines.

The future Finncanopus is the second of two ferries in a series that the same yard is building for Finnlines. Construction of Finnsirius, the first vessel in the series, commenced earlier this year.

Once completed, each ferry will measure 235 metres long and will have space for 1,100 passengers and up to 5,100 lane metres of freight.
