CMA CGM 15000 B

Here was the part A.  CMA CGM Argentina, sister toMexico and Brazil, steamed up the coast Sunday evening, making me think I’d miss it.  But it dropped anchor 15 or so miles off Point Pleasant, and stayed there making pattern like this.  Another ULCV was similarly anchored off Jones Beach, and it came into the […]

CMA CGM 15000

Remember the post on the CMA CGM 14414s?  How about the Wall of New York? Below you are looking at 25,000 teu on the Maersk PLUS the CMA CGM vessels, Maersk 10k and CMA CGM 15k, making this the largest ULCV yet to call in the sixth boro, CMA CGM Brazil.  Brazil came off the ways […]

CMA CGM Mexico

About two months ago, CMA CGM Brazil called in the sixth boro.  She’s one of four 15000 teu vessels, the largest ULCVs to date to call here.  Recently, the next one visited, CMA CGM Mexico.   Technically, her capacity is 15,128 teus. I’ve stated this before:  a vessel this size makes the boro’s largest assist tugs […]

Talos

Talos.  Know the reference?  I didn’t but will share the response at the end of this post.  It’s entirely appropriate for the very automated  and largest in physical size class of container ships to call in the sixth boro, 1211′ loa.  In fact, another ship of the class is recognized as being (in 2019) as […]

According to PANYNJ stats, May 2021 saw 396,417 loaded teus arrive in the sixth boro;  May 2020 saw 266,004!    That is an increase of 49%.  Exports of loaded teus in May this year totaled 134,458 versus 95,462 last year, an increase if 40.8%.  So the port is  . . . busy.  So as I’ve done […]

Retro Sixth Boro 39

Grey Shark assisted out of the Kills by Catherine C.  Miller.  Catherine is still working, but Grey Shark has not moved from its berth in Las Caleras DR in almost three and a half years, so it’s safe to assume she won’t be calling in NYC’s sixth boro any more. By the way, July 2011 […]

See at what point you can read the name of this tanker.  Then ask yourself what it’s registry is. Launched in 2009, her previous name was Caspian Galaxy.   Backlit photos have their own mystery. So now you’ve got the name, I suppose . . . what’s the registry?   China Dawn is a fairly […]

Random ULCVs 9

Find a great diagram here, as well as this quote:  “container carrying capacity has increased 1200% since 1968.”  This increased size drives developments in escort tugs. As of 2021, the sixth boro has accommodated vessels no larger than 15,000 teu, like CMA CGM Argentina.  These can be called mother ships, since they can call in […]

Random ULCVs 8

A big bridge and two large ships, Atlantic Sky , a CONRO vessel, and Hyundai Speed, part of the Together class of 13,082 teu vessels out working the oceans since 2012 already.  Can anyone help me understand the yellowish tinge to that plume?   In contrast to a fully loaded Hyundai Speed,the 2012 Al Qibla […]

Random Ships 84

I’d wager that more than two thousand cargo ships dock in the sixth boro each year.  This morning as I write this, I count  20 in all, including the second of the 15k ULCVs, CMA CGM Panama.  No, I didn’t get photos because . . . I was workbound. All these photos I took in […]
