The Ebba Maersk is a container ship owned by the Danish shipping company A. P. Moller-Maersk Group. The fifth of the Mærsk E-class, she and her seven sister ships are among the largest container ships ever built. She has a total TEU capacity of 11,000 TEU 14-ton containers by Maersk definition; however, with standard ratings she can hold 14,770 containers. This rating goes by physical space rather than weight. Her beam is 56 m (184 ft), her length 397 m (1,302 ft), and she has a deadweight tonnage of 156,907. In May 2010, she was reported with 15,011 TEU in Tangier, Morocco, the highest equivalent number of any vessel.
