When I started this blog, Evergreen presented itself in the sixth boro with their D class.  Then they added size and capacity with their L class.  Today for the first time,

I saw an F class, Ever Focus.  I can imagine subsequent ships called Faith, Fruitful, Frugal, Friendly . . .  really I’m just guessing.    Below, it appears more structure has been added to prevent losing containers overboard.

 

The superstructure seems much more compact, yielding space for a payload.

I’ve read this vessel has entered service in 2020; we’ve seen quite a number of brand-spanking boats arrive here this year, such as the Hyundai and Seaspan boats.

Someone more knowledgeable than me might explain why it appeared only one engine is operating.

BOLO . . . the next F class Evergreen boat.  The F class, though new, is by no means Evergreen’s largest.  They’ve already completed several of the G class:  Ever Golden, Ever Goods . . .  These come in a 20,000 teu and 1312′ x 194′ . . . .  There’s a lot of stuff being moved around the ocean, mostly in the direction of the “advanced” countries.

How about a tale of the tape for the ones that have served NYC:  D class boats are Panamax:  964′ x 105′ and 4711 teu.  L class come in at 1099′ x 151′ and 8452 teu.  This F boat is 1096′ x 157′ but somehow  . . . 11850 teu.
