You are currently browsing the tag archive for the ‘Tucapel’ tag.

You’ll see the entire vessel as you scroll through here, but for starters, any idea of the namesake for this vessel?  At what point in these photos can you tell if you’re looking at a Panamax or postPanamax vessel or whether this is a ULCV?

Kirby has the stern and Margaret is portside.

At this point, you can answer most of the questions above.  I have to confess I thought she looked small.

JRT has the starboard.

 

To compare Tucapel with a standard container vessel from 10 years ago, check out this January 2009 post here.  And look at Sun Right, now scrapped.  Sun Right was launched in 1993.  Tucapel was launched in 2012.

 

Sun Right carried 4299 teu, and Tucapel . . . 8000.  The biggest ULCVs in the sixth boro these days are around 14,000.

And the vessel namesake?   Here’s the answer.
