NYK Constellation

 NYK Line has a total of twelve sister ships of the same class, all named for constellations except this one, NYK Constellation which summarizes all the names. Most of the ships are Halifax callers  on The Alliance's AL5 service including NYK Delphinus which has been in Oakland, California since May 17 after a fire on board May 14 after sailing from Vancouver.

NYK Constellation was built by Hyundai, Ulsan in 2007, with a capacity of 4922 TEU including 330 reefers. Its tonnages are registered at 55,534 gt, 65919 dwt.

June is notoriously Fog Month in Halifax and this year there have been several "invisible" arrivals and departures. Fortunately in my quest to collect photos of the whole set of Constellation sister ships, the fog held off around the shoreline of Bedford Basin for the June 22 departure. And there was the incidental benefit of reduced background clutter.
