Nine DSME Built Vessels Selected as Best Ships of 2012

Nine Vessels built by DSME were selected as the best ships of 2012. As a result of this year’s achievement, DSME has now had more than nine ships selected for the fifth consecutive year.

The world’s four biggest magazines exclusively dedicated to shipbuilding and shipping select the best vessels annually.

Four ships were chosen as significant ships of 2012 by the UK magazine ‘Naval Architect’ and two ships were selected by ‘Fairplay Solution’. The ‘Marine Log’ and the ‘Maritime Reporter’, both from USA, each chose three ships as their distinctive ships of 2012.

The highest ranking ships were four crude oil carriers and three containerships. One product carrier and one passenger ship was also selected.

‘CMA CGM Marco Polo’ was selected by all three magazines. She is 397m long, 53.6m wide, and able to be loaded with 16,020 TEU containers. It is currently the world’s biggest container ship so last year BBC and other members of the press focused on her first entry to Southampton’s port.

The diverse selection of the best global ships has provided further evidence that vessels built by DSME are world-class.

Since the first ship, the ‘Bow Pioneer’, was selected as the best ship in 1982, DSME has produced 131 of the world’s best ships over the past 30 years.
