Photo Category: Containerships built 2001-2010
The nearly new (delivered May, 2009) NYK Rigel transits to sea through the lower Chesapeake Bay having departed the Norfolk, Virginia/Hampton Roads area about an hour previous. Early morning, tide going out, August 6, 2009. The extensive and very strong overnight thunderstorms have washed the haze and particulate matter out of the atmosphere giving a sharp view of this new ship even though it is a dark and cloudy day. 4922 TEU (listed as 4800 on its owner's fleet list), GRT 55,534t, Panama flag. I could not find any photos of this containership on this site so these may be the first photos of her posted.

If there weren't some colorful containers on the deck, one could think it's a black and white photo :-) Black ships in grey weather, always lucky if it's a containership and you have some colorful boxes on deck !!
