A brief AIS report for XIN FU 26 appeared on 19/12/2016 at 32.00959°N 120.6183°E, which is a long pier on the south side of Kaisha Island (ship dimensons declared as 337 x 48m).
On 6/3/2017 XIN FU 24 broadcast again, at 32.00838°N 120.6202°E, which is the same pier. On 8/12/2016 XIN FU 24 was at anchor in 32.07070°N, 120.48070°E
Or perhaps this is a red herring?

Part of the mystery (but not the names) of 'where have these ships disappeared to?' would appear to have been solved today.
In conversation with a senior superintendent from Seaspan today who told me that the four vessels, as per davidships comment, viz
9767998 - YZJ2014/1122
9768007 - YZJ2014/1123
9778129 - YZJ2015/1168 &
9778131 - YZJ2015/1169
were built as part of a 25 ship order from this Chinese builder. This particular four were built in conjunction with a major shipowner (un-named) for a 10+ year charter.
Circumstances, finacial or otherwise, have prevented the charterer taking control of the ships as scheduled.
Their delivery & introduction has been re-scheduled to 2018, meanwhile the four ships (as and when completed) are being laid up without trials taking place.
They are currently moored in or near the shipyard itself but there are plans afoot to move them down river to Taicang.
Anyone care to speculate on the charterer? The ships were built specifically for his/their charter and therefore the hull colour offers a clue.

Thanks for setting me straight
IMO - Yd No - launched - comments
9767998 - YZJ2014/1122 - 3/6/2016 - in River Yangtse E of Jingyin 8/12/2016 with AIS name "XIN FU 24" (ATG flag)
9768007 - YZJ2014/1123 - launched?
9778129 - YZJ2015/1168 - 26/10/2016
9778131 - YZJ2015/1169 - launched?
So perhaps yard using temporary names XIN FU 24-XIN FU 27?

Indeed don't think it's the MSC Gayene as indeed she would be black then and she will be built in the Zhoushan area.
The hull colour made me think it could be one of the three Oceanbulk container vessels under construction with a yet unknown (at least public) charter, as Oceanbulk has this kind of hull-color.
Then of course it's also suspect-idly a CMA CGM hull colour.
Then on the other hand she indeed has the appearance of the Seaspan 10000teu saver class, witch could make it one of the four last ones for Seaspan with again an (publicly) unknown charter.

|Scrub that. The MARIC 9400TEU's are twin island. We're back to the Seaspan Saver (MARIC 10000TEUs) that Rick mentioned earlier. Compare: http://www.shipspotting.com/gallery/photo.php?lid=2160705|

This is one of the MARIC9400TEU vessels being built by CIC Jiangsu (on the Yangtze) for Bank of Communications Leasing Co., for charter to CMA-CGM (the colour is CMA-CGM blue, no?)

If you look just before the forward island you will see some numbers.
They could even be 236, if somebody else can look and check.
|Phil English on Dec 14, 2016 12:44 (5 months ago)|
Sorry to burst any bubbles but Jinhai hull J0238 has reportedly been delayed and construction is not this far advanced.
|Patalavaca on Dec 14, 2016 12:12 (5 months ago)|
David, good suggestion & we seem to be getting closer to a name, especially with a (potential) hull number of 238.
Two things are puzzling me:
1) Long term MSC chartered ships would mostly likely leave the builder's yard with a black hull.
2) I can only locate one building yard for Jin Hai Heavy - indeed at Daishan on Zhoushan Island- quite some distance from the stated location by lys of 'Yangtze River'.
The plot thickens and all will be revealed soon. I hope!
|davidships on Dec 13, 2016 01:10 (5 months ago)|
If that is indeed "--238", I suggest:
MSC GAYANE (IMO 9770763)
100,700gt, 120,500dwt, 10,800teu
286.4/314.3 x 48.2 x 24.8 (dr 14.6)m
building Jinhai Heavy Industry Co Ltd, Daishan (Yd J0238)
6/4/2016 keel laid
5/2017 expected delivery
SinOceanic Shipping AS, Oslo.
|Adrian Ford on Dec 12, 2016 18:40 (5 months ago)|
You can see it a bit clearer on the bow. Looks like 238?
|Patalavaca on Dec 12, 2016 18:12 (5 months ago)|
David, same on the stern. It appears to me to be a few Chinese characters followed by the hull number, which are, naturally, unreadable.
|davidships on Dec 11, 2016 01:46 (5 months ago)|
|Clould that be a short name near the bows?|
|tonker on Dec 10, 2016 23:33 (5 months ago)|
|Is this one being built to the same specs as the newer MOL vessels? I think there`s the MOL Benefactor and a few others? Nice looking ships, I still prefer this design to the larger beasts which have their superstructure toward the bow and the funnels near the stern. Just my 2 cents worth. :)|
|MO Roy on Dec 10, 2016 14:44 (5 months ago)|
Ok, thanks Rick.
|Patalavaca on Dec 10, 2016 13:58 (5 months ago)|
I suggest it is identical to it's predecessors & is possibly Seaspan's third of three 10,000 teu vessels from the Jiangsu Yangzi Xinfu yard:
Following on from hull No's
1120 (Maersk Genoa),
1121 (Maersk Gibraltar)
& thus could be
1122, (to be named) with IMO 9767998 & launched 02/11/2016.
|MO Roy on Dec 10, 2016 10:30 (5 months ago)|
Is she one of the three oceanbulk vessels under construction?
