Finally the lighting was right for this scene: Cap San Marco just left the shipyard after her first class renewal and made room for Cap San Lorenzo, the last of four Cap Sans to be docked in Hamburg.

That's what 5 years of service will do ...

Hi Michael,
thank you for the information re Hamburg SUD's sale
Michael Schindler on May 15, 2018 16:08 (10 months ago)
First off, thank you Vlad, Ron, Jan Ove and Hannes for your kind words. Indeed Maersk has bought Hamburg Süd and the reflagging is complete. Cap San and Santa ships have Danish flag (Homeport København); Monte, Rio, Cap and Polar have Singapore.
MO Roy on May 15, 2018 15:29 (10 months ago)
The big ones will go to Danish flag, most others to Singapore flag, and of course they will keep the Brazilian flag as well.
Hannes van Rijn on May 15, 2018 14:04 (10 months ago)
All ships will be flagged to Denmark.
Hannes van Rijn on May 15, 2018 13:51 (10 months ago)
Exellent Michael!!!!!!!!
Jan Ove on May 15, 2018 07:20 (10 months ago)
Right time, right place, well done !!!

Hi Michael,
pardon my ignorance but has Maersk bought/taken over Columbus line (Hamburg SUD)? I can remember Columbus line as a stand alone company operating to and from Australia since the late 1950's

Just perfect, thanks for sharing!

Hi Michael. Nice shot and a rare and interesting composition. Congratulations.
Michael Schindler on May 14, 2018 18:23 (10 months ago)
I remember Jens, in fact that motif is now on the wall of our office lobby.
Jens Boldt on May 14, 2018 18:21 (10 months ago)
I think you chose the perfect location, Bubendey Ufer would have been a bit too far away and the angle wouldn't have been that good. Yes, it's a pity that we will loose this spotting location.

And should they one day really expand ECT then the view from Parkhöft into Waltershofer Hafen will be lost, too. I caught Cap San Marco there when she made her first call at Hamburg in May 2014...
Michael Schindler on May 14, 2018 17:47 (10 months ago)
Thank you as well Mike. Brgds Michael
Mike Matzel on May 14, 2018 17:44 (10 months ago)
Very cool and rare shot, well done. Best regards, Mike.
Michael Schindler on May 14, 2018 17:42 (10 months ago)
Thanks Jens. I was scratching my head wondering where the best place would be, in case of cloudy skies Docklands would have been my first choice. It will be a big loss when they remove this tip to make the turning circle bigger, great location on long summer evenings when the sun really comes around.
Jens Boldt on May 14, 2018 17:29 (10 months ago)
Splendid photo, Michael. Right time, right place :-)
Michael Schindler on May 14, 2018 17:11 (10 months ago)
Thank you Igor.
Sadly it was indeed the last chance for this kind of composition in Hamburg, at least for a while. The other Cap Sans will be docked elsewhere, next time a comparison with a Triple-E would be interesting as well.
Igor Dilo on May 14, 2018 17:08 (10 months ago)
Very interesting rare combination.
Kind regards, Igor
Michael Schindler on May 14, 2018 17:05 (10 months ago)
Thank you very much Roy.

Yes, Maersk decided to keep the brand and by extension the classic red. There is however a distinct Maersk blue flag flying from the main mast of both vessels :-)
MO Roy on May 14, 2018 16:49 (10 months ago)
Very nice Michael.
They kept her red.
