FOOTAGE has emerged of a box ship doing turns in Sydney Harbour about a year ago.

Sydney Harbour no longer hosts container vessels, but this was a special occasion to mark the 25th anniversary of Maersk’s operations in Australia.

The company had special permission to put on a show via its vessel Leda Maersk (IMO: 9190755), a 266-metre ship registered in Denmark.

The video footage shows the skilful movements of the vessel and the clever use of tugs.
