The Ebba Maersk is a container ship owned by the Danish shipping company A. P. Moller-Maersk Group. The fifth of the Mærsk E-class,[1] she and her seven sister ships are the largest container ships ever built as well as the longest ships in use. She has a total TEU capacity of 11,000 TEU 14-ton containers by Maersk definition; however, with standard ratings she can hold 14,770 containers.[2] This rating goes by physical space rather than weight. Her beam is 183 feet (56 m), her length 1,302 feet (397 m), and she has a deadweight tonnage of 156,907. In May 2010, she was reported with 15,011 TEU[3] in Tangier, Morocco, the highest equivalent number of any vessel.
