World's Largest Ship

The world's largest ship, which has just set sail from the South Korean port of Busan, is 1312 feet (400m) long. It reaches as high as a 20-storey building and can carry 18,000 standard 20f containers.

The Maersk Mc-Kinney Moller set sail on its maiden voyage from Busan in South Korea on July 16 and is due in Rotterdam, The Netherlands, on August 16. The ship has been designed to move at a lower speed (16 knots, or approximately 30 kh/h) for the purposes of better fuel economy and lower carbon emissions.
