IN DEPTH INFORMATION
The keel laying of FINNJET started on 20.05.1977 in Helsinki's Hietalahti shipyard. (Wärtsilä). On the same date, Finnlines director Olavi J. Mattila attended the keel laying ceremony. Workers of the shipyard threw coins onto the metal to wish good luck to the ship. Those coins were then welded to the double bottom, where they are still today.
