  • 2021-12-02

TALLINN – Tallink Grupp has today released the interior images of its newest vessel MyStar, currently under construction at the Rauma Marine Constructions (RMC) shipyard in Rauma, Finland. The interior design of the eco-friendliest LNG-powered vessel on the Baltic Sea, MyStar is carried out by renowned Finnish interior design agency dSign Vertti Kivi & Co.

Commenting on the release of the interior images of MyStar, Member of the Board of Tallink Grupp, Piret Mürk-Dubout said:

- “We are very excited to invite everyone to take the first sneak-peak into the marvellous interior of our newest shuttle MyStar - our key strategic project we have been working on since autumn 2019. Following the vessel’s christening and launch this summer, we are now at the exciting stage of the construction project where the novel traveller concepts and amazing interior elements of the vessel are starting to come to life area by area on board the vessel.  We are looking forward to welcoming everyone onboard MyStar in 2022 to experience the new way to travel at sea and see for yourselves everything that is MyStar – a floating entertainment and shopping centre to cater to the various needs of modern traveller.”

Compared to the current flagship of Tallink’s fleet Megastar, MyStar will have new public areas and the customer journey onboard has been designed to be even more seamless. Altogether, MyStar has 14 public areas.  Special public areas and solutions have been created for passengers travelling with families, shoppers, business and leisure travellers alike.

By using the various visuals and themes, the interior design showcases the Beauty of the Baltic Sea and calls upon each traveller to notice and cherish the uniqueness of the Baltic Sea, protect its environment and cultural heritage.

Commenting on the interior images of MyStar, Vertti Kivi, Head Designer and CEO, dSign Vertti Kivi & Co said:

- "We chose Beauty of the Baltic Sea as the overarching theme for the interior design of the vessel – a story which is told by using exclusive underwater video and photo compilations throughout the vessel. Every public area on the vessel conveys its unique character and atmosphere, which is created featuring various contrasting surface materials, new colour palette, furnishings created exclusively for the vessel as well as bold lighting solutions. From the newly revealed visuals the spirit of MyStar can be truly felt. We are very pleased with the entire concept and proud to be able to take the interior design of the vessel to the new level and indeed, a new decade.”

The heart of the ship is, of course, the Traveller Superstore, which communicates the message of loving care and carries a boutique-like vibe. At the centre of the superstore, a new discovery station is found, where sampling of products can be organised. Passing through the store has been made very fluid for the shopper, thus allowing to discover throughout the customer journey, the various fixed and pop-up sales points, including the Nordic Corner, showcasing local products and design.

The completion of Tallink’s newest shuttle vessel is planned for spring 2022, when MyStar will start operating between the capital cities of Tallinn and Helsinki. Together with Tallink shuttle vessel Megastar, they will form the most sustainable transport connection between Estonia and Finland from 2022 onwards.
