The 4th one is indeed "NYK Crane". :) Saw her today, will upload photo as soon as I get back from the tour of Japanese shipyards.

whispered, Crane next but no guarantees and all a bit boring.

Vlad / Jan. Thanks as usual for the great photo-update. Regarding your question: IMO for the 4th ship will be 9741401, JMU KURE Hull 5064, no name known yet. Also note that - unless plans change - there will be 15 units of this type, not 10. These are owned and/or chartered from various outlets related to NYK or JMU. Japanese ownership and managment structures are often a bit intransparent to say the least.

Thanks for comments, Andre and Roy.
Judging by this series, it's business as usual in large container ships market - but we know that the actual situation is far from rosy.
We will definitely see younger ships going to the beaches of Alang/Chittagong/Gadani, so that the market will clear eventually...
Roy, any news on the name/IMO number of the 4th NYK vessel?


MO Roy on Jul 18, 2016 01:26 (1 year ago)
Hi Vlad,
Many thanks for the latest 14000 teu sibling.
No.3 in a series of 10 with no.4 already visible.
Now NYK is going to take a further 5 14000teu'ers from JMU, most probably (similar) sisters to be delivered 2018-2019.

Nice close up shot from your side of the globe. With more super sized tonnage coming out of Far East / Asian yards and the Panama Canal expansion project completed (max 14,000 TEU's....?), even new behemoths such as MSC HAMBURG (IMO9647461), TIHAMA (IMO9736107), MURAYKH (IMO9708863), unable to transit the newly expanded canal (although likely never their intended route). Perhaps of greater concern for shipowners is the current glut of ships, charter rates in the toilet and cargo volume cargo volumes on a slippery slope. Younger ships could be in jeopardy staying afloat (i.e. scrap yard....?).
