The most interesting container ship of the world, and the one which got the first place in capacity and measurements, definitely is Emma Maersk. The giant of Maersk company has capacity for more than 13,500 container on board. The length of the container ship is 397 meters and the beam is 56 meters. The draft of Emma Maersk is 15.50 meters and the whole deadweight of the ship is 156,907 m.t. The vessels is really amazing because in spite of all other sister-ships, this one is well remebered from all ships' lovers. Actually the history of Emma Maersk is really large and amazing. Just when put on trial tests the container ship fell on fire and only the fast job of the crew on board saved the ship with only a little damages over the superstructure. Later the ship made the most remebered voyage from China to Great Britain and due to delay almost left thousands of kids without presents for their Christmas. The container ship reduced the whole delay in one day and came exactly on time in the port of Southampton to make a lot of children happy and filled all shops with nice Chinese presents. This was the first and best remebered voyage of the container ship, which actually cannot calculate more than 10 hours delay for the whole 5 years of sailing arou nd the oceans. The main reason for this is the strong main engine Wartsila 14RT-Flex96c, which has power of 109,000 hp and size like 4 floors building.
