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 183 feet (56 m), her length 1,302 feet (397 m), 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.
