Regina Maersk

The Regina Maersk is a "K" class box ship of A.P.Moller- Maersk Group. The container vessel was built in 1996 and deployed on the Europe-Far East liner service.

At the time of her delivery, the vessel broke many records as she was:

  • the first ship over 6,000 TEU capacity (actual capacity of 6,400 TEU);
  • the first container ship over 300 meters (length of 318.2 meters);
  • the first with 42.80 m breadth; and
  • the first over 80,000 GT;
  • also the first Mærsk vessel with a blue-painted hull

In 2008, the vessel name was renamed to Maersk Kure, and the registry was also changed, from Denmark to Greece.
