May 2017

Spotted this vehicle carrier departing Honolulu after disgorging an unknown number of automobiles for local auto dealers.  This type of cargo vessel is also known as RO-RO ships, where the cargo rolls on and rolls off without the need for cranes.  The Metis Leader has capacity for almost 7,000 vehicles, with more than 52,000 square meters of space across 12 decks.  It was completed at Imabari Shipyard in Japan and launched in July 2013.  Nikon D500 w/80-400mm, processed with Aperture and CK Suite.
