I only get the audio at that link.

It's not a "gleaming new container ship" but rather a tugboat, kind of like this one, but not exactly.

At this link they say it was in Malaysia.

This was the intended MAINPORT TARA (IMO 9659347).  Anyone know the actual date of the disastrous launch (the earliest appearance of the video I can find is 5 Aug 2014).

She has not, as yet, been completed, and it seems cancelled by Mainport.

This is what was suppposed to happen - launch of sister MAINPORT PINE on 5 Aug 2013:

Ironically the video captures the comment "very stable".
