Yes, some "Valemax" ore carrier would be a worthier contender, but still about 40 meters shorter and 2 meters lower than this container type. Sure, it would be 4 meters wider but, due to container ship's very tall superstructures, would still look smaller (but would still have that huge dwt edge!)... :)

Cheers

looking forward to see a picture of a large ore carrier in comparison with a ULCC. In terms of dwt the container ship still has a long way to go.

Thanks for your comment, Roy. Soon, the first MSC from Daewoo will be launched, so I hope I'll get some comparison shot from Okpo, too... :)

Cheers

Nice Vlad, and yeah and they used to be "the monsters" of the sea.
Cheers,
