New Largest Containership in the Word

It's the largest in terms of twenty foot equivalent units (TEU's), one twenty foot container and it is also 1300 feet long.

Re: New Largest Containership in the Word

I'm not sure where the pic was taken. The limitation on how large these ships can get are the depth of harbors. Many harbors are dredging to accommodate these sized ships.

Re: New Largest Containership in the Word

I think if all us cruisers would sell our boats and collectively buy one of these, we could just call it an island and move it where we wanted. less danger and more comfort.... :>) Not to mention always having the right of way!
