Yesterday’s post showed a larger than average container vessel in the sixth boro, CMA CGM Pacific Link.  That post prompted Allen Baker to send along photos he took last month in San Francisco. Pacific Link‘s teu capacity was just over 8000;  CMA CGM Margrit‘s teu capacity is 13,102.

CMA CGM Margrit used to be MSC Margrit.  Her dimensions in feet are 1202 x 158.  If you count the containers across the stern, you’ll see she carries 19 across, compared with 17 for Pacific Link and 14 for President Truman.

I’ve tried unsuccessfully to find the air draft on this vessel.  Anyone help?
