As the G-6 Alliance continues to roll out its roster of ships new to Halifax, APL Pearl became the latest arrival at Fairview Cove. Sister to the other former Neptune Orient Line ships in the rotation, APL Pearl is a 1998 product of the Samsung Shipbuilding & Heavy Industry yard in Koje, South Korea. At 65,475 gross/ 64,156 deadweight, 5020 TEU, the ship is also typical of those displaced from former routes by ever larger ships.
The ship is registered in Oakland, CA flies the US flag, and carries the APL Eagle on her stack.
APL Pearl arrived in thick fog this morning - her fog horn waking up half of south end Halifax-and will sail after dark this evening.
