Images of MV ‘CMA CGM T Roosevelt’ in New York Harbor

Images of Neo-panamax Containership MV ‘CMA CGM T Roosevelt’ under the Verrazzano-Narrows Bridge, against the World Trade Center and the Lower Manhattan skyline, and by the Statute of Liberty


French containership liner company CMA CGM built six sistership 14,000-teu containerships in 2017 at Hyundai Heavy that have been named after six U.S. Presidents; the vessels are MV ‘CMA CGM G Washington’, MV ‘CMA CGM J Adams’, MV ‘CMA CGM J Madison’, MV ‘CMA CGM T Jefferson’, MV ‘CMA CGM A Lincoln’, MV ‘CMA CGM T Roosevelt’. Images of MV ‘CMA CGM T Roosevelt’ calling New York Harbor can be seen here:

Images of MV ‘CMA CGM A Lincoln’ in New York Harbor, April 17, 2020

It’s been almost a year since the Neo-panamax Containership MV ‘CMA CGM T Roosevelt’ called New York Harbor for the first time; we were there then to take pictures of her Maiden Voyage to New York; please click here for our old posting!


Neo-panamax Containership, 14,500-TEU, built in 2017 at Hyundai HI (Ulsan)


VESSEL IDENTIFICATION & DESCRIPTION: Launch Name was CMA CGM Theodore Roosevelt. Call Sign MAZS3, IMO Number 9780873. Built at Hyundai HI (Ulsan), United Kingdom Flagged, BV Classed, Length Overall of 365.95 m., Length Between Perpendiculars of 350.00 m., Draught of 16.00 m., Moulded Depth of 29.85 m. Beam of 48.20 m., Gross Tonnage of 140,872, Tonnage of 64,226 International Net and 146,639 Dwt (long). WinGD Engine, Heavy Fuel Oil, Horsepower of 68,195 HP.

SHIPOWNERS & MANAGERS: CMA-CGM SA, Marseille, France.

VESSEL SPECIALIZED DETAILS: Teu Capacities of 14,500 Total, 9,230 Homogeneous and 2,800 Reefer, Ship is able to transit the newly expanded locks of the Panama Canal (Neo-panamax @ 14,000-teu).

MAIN ENGINE: 1 x Diesel – WinGD 10X92 – 2-stroke 10-cyl. 920mm x3468mm bore/stroke 50,190mkW total at 78rpm.

PROPULSION & POSITIONING: 1 x FP Propeller (Aft Centre) (mechanical) (Bronze), HHI – Hyundai EMD, 78rpm. 2 x Pos, Tunnel Thruster (Fwd.) (electric) at 5,000ekW total.
The neo-panamax containership MV ‘CMA CGM Theodore Roosevelt’ is making her maiden voyage to the East Coast of the United States. At 14,500 teu capacity, the vessel belongs to the new asset class of containerships with maximum capacity to cross the expanded locks of the Panama Canal. The call of the containership MV ‘CMA CGM Theodore Roosevelt’ to New York and Port Elizabeth in New Jersey is historic, as she is the largest vessel to pass under the raised Bayonne Bridge and the largest containership to call ever call New York and New Jersey. In June 2017, the 10,000-teu containership MV ‘ZIM Antwerp’ was among the first post-panamax vessels ever having to utilize the bridge’s new airdraft and raised roadway.  In mid-July 2017, the 13,2000-teu containership MV ‘OOCL Berlin’ was the first neo-panamax, and largest boxship until that time, to pass under the Bayonne Bridge. The Bayonne Bridge after almost five years of works, a budgeted cost of $1.3 billion for the project, had her roadway raised by 64 feet in order to allow new-panamax containerships to pass below; new airdraft 219.8 ft, 76.0 m. The Bayonne Bridge connects New Jersey and Staten Island (New York) over the Kill Van Kull Strait.

Here the images are from the containership MV ‘CMA CGM T Roosevelt’ passing under the Verrazzano-Narrows Bridge (connecting Staten Island and Brooklyn) and photographed against the Lower Manhattan skyline, the World Trade Center and the Statue of Liberty. For those not familiar with the New York region, the Verrazzano-Narrows Bridge is the first bridge a ship to encounter when entering the harbor, and effectively almost all vessels calling the port have to pass under. Verrazzano-Narrows Bridge’s airdraft of 230.0  ft (70.1 m) is high enough to be a concern only to large cruiseships calling New York.

Images of Cruiseship MV ‘Norwegian Spirit’ in Piraeus, Greece

MV ‘Norwegian Spirit’ Entering the Port of Piraeus
Cruiseship of 2,018 Berths, built in 1998 at Meyer Werft, Germany

VESSEL IDENTIFICATION & DESCRIPTION: Call Sign C6TQ6, IMO Number 9141065. Ordered in 1995 and built at Meyer Werft shipyard in Papenburg, Germany, delivered in Jun 1998, Bahamas Flagged, DNV Classed, P&I insurance with Steamship Mutual P&I, Length Overall of 268.60 m., Length Between Perpendiculars of 235.60 m., Draught of 8.40 m., Moulded Depth of 11.50 m., Beam of 32.20 m., Gross Tonnage of 75,338, Tonnage of 45,235 International Net and 8,395 Dwt (long).

The vessel was constructed by Meyer Werft in Germany in 1998 for account of Star Cruises, the Malaysia-based subsidiary of the Genting Group. Her Launch Name was MV ‘SuperStar Leo’ and she was the first vessel of Star Cruises’ Leo-class. Vessel originally home-ported in Singapore and operated for Star Cruises to Malaysia and Thailand. In 2000, Star Cruises acquired Norwegian Caribbean Line; In 2007, Star Cruises sold 50% of Norwegian for $1 billion to US-based Apollo Management (owners of Oceania Cruises).

In 2004, Norwegian Cruise Line was planning to launch the cruiseship MV ‘Pride of America’. However, just prior to completion, the vessel partially sank when a storm hit the Lloyd Werft shipyards. To meet the already booked cruises for MV ‘Pride of America’, the cruiseship MV ‘Norwegian Sky’ was immediately rushed into service under the name MV ‘Pride of Aloha’. To compensate for the unexpected events, cruiseship MV ‘SuperStar Leo’ was immediately transferred to the NCL fleet, her planned cruises cancelled, and after only two weeks of refits, the vessel emerged as the cruiseship MV ‘Norwegian Spirit’, ready to assume the planned cruises of MV ‘Norwegian Sky’.

There is only one sistership vessel built under the ‘Leo Class’ (now ’Spirit Class’ with NCL), the cruiseship MV ’SuperStar Virgo’ which is owned by Star Cruises. Since the ‘Leo Class’ vessels were designed for the Asian market, this cruiseship is generally on a shorter scale in height than most cruise ships. This also means shorter deck chairs for lounging, hand rails in the corridors and so on.

VESSEL’S OWNERS / MANAGERS: Norwegian Cruise Line (NCL), United States. [Norwegian is a publicly traded company listed on the New York Stock Exchange, with major shareholders including Apollo Global Management (15.8%), Genting Group (11.1%), and TPG Capital (2.3%). Norwegian Cruise Line controls approximately 8% of the total worldwide share of the cruise market.]

PASSENGER CAPACITY: Total number of Passengers 2,300, 983 Passenger Cabins, 2018 Passenger Berths, 959 Crew. 14 decks.

MAIN ENGINE: 4 x Diesel Gen – MAN Energy Solutions 14V48/60 – 4-stroke 14-cyl. 480mm x 600mm bore/stroke 58,796mkW total at 514rpm driving 4 x AC generator(s) at 60Hz.

PROPULSOR: 2 x Azimuth (Aft) (electric) AC.

NEWBUILDING COST: Reported newbuilding price of US$ 350 million, contracted in 1995.
