Subject:Worlds largest cargo ship




World's Largest Cargo Ship. Get a load of this ship! 15,000 containers and a 207' beam !!!!!! And look at the crew size for a ship longer than a US

aircraft carrier which has a complement of 5,000 men and officers.

Think it's big enough? Notice that 207' beam means it was NOT designed for the Panama or Suez canal. It is strictly transpacific. Check out the

"cruise speed". 31 knots means the goods arrive 4 days before the typical container ship (18-20 knots) on a China-to-California run.. So this be-hemoth is hugely competitive carrying perishable goods.

This ship was built in three, perhaps as many as five sections. The sections floated together and then welded. The ship is named Emma Maersk. The command bridge is higher than a 10 store building and has 11 crane rigs that can operate simultaneously.
