Don't adjust the colors of your monitor, this one is indeed pink.
This will be the first "Hello Kitty" container ship ever. :)

Sure, more serious information on this 14K TEU container ship from Japan Marine United shipyard in Kure is welcome.

Hi Vlad,
Today I checked Kure shipyard by Live camera and it found out that the hull was started to be painted in ONE colour not in black. So I think that she will be the first ship for ONE as Jan T mentioned.
I will visit Kure after her launching fot taking photos.

Operator: NYK Line??? ;-)

Thanks for the info, Hannes. I still have difficulties to imagine her entire hull in this color...

Hi Vlad,
Well the colour in your picture and on the "One" website is definitely more pink then magenta. Magenta is way more a purple colour like colour (we used to correct paper charts with a magenta pen, but now it's only digital sea-charts).

Thanks for your comments and the information. I am glad I didn't see the news on ONE's color before, as this scene from JMU was a great surprise to me... :)

And, Ruslan will know, there are people not so familiar with the color magenta, as we only called it dark pink... :)

Hi, Vlad!
Very nice shot! Very pink piece of forecastle. ;)

jan_t on Nov 26, 2017 19:53 (2 years ago)
This was announced earlier this year. So not a surprise. Still nice to see the first ship in the new ONE colors. Btw, the color is 'Magenta', not pink ;-) (Does anyone recall the Labour Party's Womens' bus?)

it's the 10th vessel of the "bird" series (JMU 5112, IMO 9784788). I think all new ships of NYK, K-Line and MOL will be painted pink because of their merger (called "ONE"). The new website shows also pink containers:

MO Roy on Nov 26, 2017 19:24 (2 years ago)
Hi Vlad,
The only box-ships to be built by JMU that I am aware off are the ones for NYK, i.e. the "bird" class (10x) plus another 5 extra (lifted options) that should be identical.
I hope others can shed more light on this. Maybe it's just a primer and it will turn black in time......
Talking about pink container ships, I shot the Conti Germany back in 2007 and she was completely pink (deckhouse as well, will post her soon).
