THE world’s largest container ship has made its way through Harwich Harbour.
The 399-metre long the Majestic Maersk was docking at the Port of Felixstowe to unload cargo from the Far East.
It is one of Maersk Line’s new Triple-E series of vessels and was launched July.
Crowds of shipspotters were on hand to watch the vessel make her way through Harwich Harbour.
It is one of 20 new vessels commissioned by Maersk and built by Daewoo Shipping to run between Asia and Europe.
