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.

ULCVs 8

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 […]

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 […]

Unrelated but priority . . . don’t know if this is real:  Colvin schooner on beach for sale for $15000 I quote from gcaptain:  “According to AP Moller, the parent company of Maersk Lines, a single 20-foot vessel container on average can hold about 48,000 bananas. In theory then, Emma Maersk is capable of holding […]
