The Alliance continues increasing the size of ships on its service, with today's arrival YM Mandate. It is another of Yang Ming's "M" class of 7572 TEU (including 500 reefer) capacity ships.
As the evening light began to fail, YM Mandate was preparing to get underway from Fairview Cove.
Built by Hanjin Heavy Industry and Construction Co Ltd, Busan in 2010, it is a 73,675 gt, 83,200 dwt vessel.
Its berth would not be vacant long as the 4526 TEU Budapest Bridge was waiting in the Basin to take its place.
