Image of the Day: Head-Spinning View from CMA CGM Containership

Bulbous Bow of the CMA CGM AMERIGO VESPUCCI

The giants of the seas, as new-age containerships are often referred to, definitely inspire feelings of awe.

 
The fleet of French container shipping company CMA CGM falls just within this sea giants category.

It takes just a look at the bow, like this one, from CMA CGM  Amerigo Vespucci to get an idea of the magnitude of these structures sailing our seas.

The 2010-built Amerigo Vespucci is sailing on Asia-Europe route.

The ship was last reported to be sailing in the Persian Gulf area.
