CMA CGM Christophe ColombToday's Ship of the Day is the CMA CGM Christophe Colomb (IMO: 9453559, Port of Registry: Marseille, France). The Christophe Colomb is currently the largest vessel in CMA CGM's fleet with a maximum teu capacity of 13,344. The vessel is 365 meters long and 51 meters wide. She was built in 2009 by Daewoo Heavy Industries, Korea. The vessel's design is comparable to the recently built MSC vessels (such as: MSC Beatrice) with the superstructure located midships. One can argue about the looks of this vessel, however the design ensures for better stability and lower trim for higher speed, when the ship is fully loaded. The Christophe Colomb will have seven sisterships, amongst which are the CMA CGM Amerigo Vespucci and CMA CGM Corte Real which have also been recently delivered. She is deployed in CMA CGM's FAL1 loop connecting China and North-Western Europe.

The CMA CGM Christophe Colomb is scheduled to arrive later tonight at the APM Terminal, Rotterdam with the last port of call at Hamburg and will leave in about 36 hours with destination Zeebrugge..
