|Today's Ship of the Day is the CMA CGM Magellan (IMO: 9454424, Port of Registry: London). The Magellan 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 Magellan 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 Magellan arrived this morning at the APM Terminal, Rotterdam with the last port of call at Le Havre. She will visit Rotterdam next week once more on her second call in the loop.

|The Edith Maersk (IMO: 9321548, Port of Registry: Roskilde, Denmark) is, together with her sisters (amongst which are the 'Emma Maersk' and 'Eleonora Maersk'), still the largest containership in dimensions with a total teu capacity 11,000 teu (of which 1,000 forty foot reefer containers) according to the A.P. Moller - Maersk Group. Rumours are that a total capacity of 13,500 teu is also possible. This capacity is possible by stacking the containers in 22 rows wide. The vessel is 397 meters long, 56 meters wide, has a depth of 30 meters and a deadweight of 156,907 tons. Amazingly, all this size and capacity requires a crew of only 13. The specially designed Wärtsilä diesel engine delivers 80,000 kW. A waste heat recovery system is installed to optimise the use of the energy produced, so that the engine can deliver up to 90,000 kW. The vessels in this series will also establish new standards for safety and environmental responsibility. Environmentally-safe silicone paint, for example, is used on the hull, below the water line, reducing water resistance, and thereby fuel consumption, by 1,200 tons per year. The ship was launched at Odense Steel Shipyard Ltd on March 3rd 2007.||Source: Shipspotting.com|

|The Maersk Edinburgh (IMO: 9456757, Port of Registry: Majuro, Marshall Islands) is Maersk's answer to the new breed of containervessels, introduced by MSC, with the superstructure midships. The Maersk Edinburgh was one of the first of nine newbuildings in this class, amongst which are the Maersk Edison, Maersk Edmonton and Maersk Eindhoven. The vessel is 366 meters long and 48 meters wide and has a deadweight of 141,000 tonnes. Containers are carried 17-wide below deck and 19-wide on the hatch-covers. The maximum capacity of each ship is 7,074 TEU on deck and 6,018 TEU below deck, making 13,092 TEU in total. The vessels are deployed in Maersk's AE-8 loop. The vessels are crucial in Maersk's strategy to maintain and expand market share. Rumours are that Maersk is also considering 18,000 teu vessels to be built in the following years.|
The Maersk Edinburgh arrived this morning at the APM Terminal, Rotterdam on her second call to Rotterdam this loop. She will return to Rotterdam within two months.
