YANG Ming this week took delivery of the new 11,000-TEUI YM Together. The vessel is chartered from Shoei Kisen Kaisha and it was built by Imbari Shipbuilding Company.

The ship will soon begin Yang Ming’s PN3 trans-Pacific operation between Asia and North America.

YM Together is the ninth of 14 container vessels with an 11,000 TEU capacity that Yang Ming has on order.

This newest ship has a total capacity of 11,860 TEU and is equipped with 1000 plugs for freefers.

YM Together is 333.9 metres in length and is 48.4 metres wide. It has a draught of 16 metres and can travel at speeds up to 14 knots.

The ship is equipped with a range of environmental features including scrubbers, a ballast water treatment plant and an alternative marine power system.

The twin-island design is adopted to increase loading capacity and navigational visibility. The hull form is optimized to increase energy saving and reduce overall emissions. Also, the hulk’s shorter length and beam can increase efficiency in berthing or departure, allowing the ship to pass through the Panama Canal and call at major ports worldwide with greater agility.
