#ferry - A ferry operator from Estonia says sale boosts group's financial position, but not material to results.

Tallink Grupp said it concluded sales agreements with Sweden's Stena Line for the sale of two passenger-car ferries.

The group said the deals with Stena Ropax will cover the 32,728-gt Stena Superfast VII and Stena Superfast VIII. (Afloat adds the pair operate the Belfast-Cairnryan route)

Tallink said the deal is valued at EUR 133.5m ($152m). The vessels will be delivered to the buyer in December 2017. Until then, the vessels continue operations in the UK waters.
