MOL Glide for the first time

 Another first timer, MOL Glide arrived at Fairview Cove this morning (early) and will sail after dark this evening.

I have always liked the MOL hull colour, especially when combined with the orange funnel. And now while in service with THE Alliance with lots of HAPAG-Lloyd boxes on deck it looks even more colourful.

Otherwise the ship is a pretty standard Hyundai Samho product of 2011, coming in at 59.307 gt and 71,339 dwt, it has a capacity of 5100 TEU.

The ship is owned by Heliconia Shipping Ltd (part of Singapore's Temasek Holdings) but with seemingly German managers, and therefore likely on long term charter to MOL. MOL is now part of Ocean Network Express (ONE), but many of its ships will continue to carry "heritage" names and colour schemes until the charters run out.
