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!

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.
