The remaining two E-Flexer vessels under construction in China are larger versions at 240 metres. The destination of the as-yet-un-named ferries has not yet been revealed.

Stena Line is the largest ferry operator on the Irish Sea 232 weekly sailings between Ireland and Britain including Dublin to Holyhead, Rosslare to Fishguard, Belfast to Cairnryan, and the Belfast to Liverpool and Heysham.
