The mix of ship sizes within our fleet provides flexibility to deploy our vessels on a wide range of trading routes.
Including the two Post-Panamax containerships delivered in early 2020, Global Ship Lease owns 45 ships, ranging from 2,207 to 11,040 TEU, of which nine are fuel efficient new-design wide beam, with a total capacity of 249,160 TEU and an average age, weighted by TEU capacity, of 12.8 years as at December 31, 2019.
1Onboard cranes, allowing vessels to load and discharge in ports where shoreside infrastructure is limited.
2Wide beam improves stability, reduces need for ballast water, and increases cargo load factors.
3At standard operating speeds, fully laden eco-vessels consume 20 - 30 mt per day less fuel than non-eco tonnage, reducing daily running costs for charterers.
4Bulbous bow modified to optimize fuel-efficient performance at lower operating speeds.
5High reefer count allows charterers to carry high-margin refrigerated cargo. Onboard power generation capacity can support significant upsizing of reefer plug count.
6Optimized for fuel-efficient performance at lower operating speeds.
