Kships exclusive: Tallink reveals the new livery of the Baltic Queen!

The Estonian ferry operator Tallink Grupp today revealed that they will renew the liveries of the Baltic Queen (sailing under the Tallink brand on the Helsinki-Tallinn route) and the Baltic Princess (sailing under the Silja Line brand on the Turku-Stockholm route) when the ships are next docked. "The Galaxy has been since the beginning in a livery designed by the Estonian artist Navitrolla. We have decided to honour Swedish and Finnish artists in the new liveries of the Galaxy's sisters, thus our three main markets will be present on the sides of our largest and newest ships", says Tallink's managing director Janek Nalmeister.

The first ship to be repainted is the Baltic Queen, which will receive artwork designed by the Finnish war veteran and internationally renowned artist Touko Laaksonen in its docking next autumn. The Baltic Princess will receive artworks by the Swedish painter Hilma af Klint at a later date.
