The biggest containership ever to call at Piraeus Container Terminal , and the third biggest sailing in the world. Really huge.

Her nominal capacity is 24188 TEU.

Cargo ship with heavy cranes PALERMO IMO: 9238088 , seems to be laid up at Charleston since 2017.
Then I have heard that she was sold as-is in order to be repaired (there was engine problem) and most probably would become a us navy auxilary ship... Since then just by curiosity i have checked it in various photo databases,even in facebook or instagram but haven't found sth.Does anyone know sth?

As most of you may have seen all this time I am a member of shipspotting  (the last four years i think) I've tried to do a videos collection from almost all ships that arrive and depart from the main port of Piraeus(ferry and cruise port )plus some (especially the most important) which arrive at the commercial port of Piraeus in New Ikonio area,where Container and Car Terminals are. Also not many,but enough to take an idea for what is coming, I have filmed some motor yachts coming in Piraeus Marinas or in main Port.

It was October or November of 2011 when I started the "creation" of this file,I post also here you below the videos,divided per categories of ships for anyone who is interested and has the time to watch them. I have shortenened the links via

Ferries: :

Cruise: -

Tugs :


War Ships:


Vehicle carriers:

Hellenic Navy:

Hellenic Coast Guard:


I write this because I don't know who are the basic admins and their emails...

Someone of the admins to tell these 2-3 members that post videos like throwing little rocks in the sea to slow down a bit ,because the video category becomes boring ... You get in the site..and you see the same and the same again... I don't write this because I post also myself a lot of videos , but because as the time passes and seeing same photos of same ship in the same place being posted without being deleted ...or what i said before with videos ,i feel a little dissapointed with the site even it is one of my favourite ones!! (for sure in my top10 of any category)...

In 2012-2013 it was reported that ex Tirrenia Capricorn would become a super luxury yacht.... Also I have read somewhere that it was towed from Tuzla to Croatia (probably Zadar) . Does anyone know what finally happened?? The only shipdatabase that  shows the ship as active and not dead is equasis...

Another historic ship reaches her end

Major operation by the Hellenic Coast Guard to locate 10 Syrian sailors (two were found dead) aboard a cargo ship that sank off the coast of Methoni at dawn Monday after a collision with another freighter.

It is the Piri Reis ( IMO: 7916727) cargo ship under a Cook Islands flag that had a total of 17 sailors from Syria and was carrying fertilizer.

Piri Reis collided for unknown reasons at 5:43 a.m. Monday with another freighter, Consouth ( IMO: 9145255), under an Antigua and Barbados flag with 16 sailors, all in good health.

The collision occurred 78km. southwest of the island of Sapienza on the south coast of Messinia.

Four sailing boats, two Coast Guard floaters, a C-130 aircraft and a Sikorski helicopter are involved in the operation for the locating of the 10 sailors.

The weather conditions in the area are good.

Shipping News and information / Photo deletion reasons!
« on: April 30, 2013, 02:42:10 PM »
Can i ask again the reasons a photo is considered for deletion?
For example..this one:

From everyangle you are going to take a photo of this ship..the crane exists!!How will we take the photo??

Also from the otherside there are 2 cargo ships laid we cannot take a photo from the otherside..even if we are on board the Piraeus-Salamis little ship!!

Dear Admins,I think you might reconsider the reasons a photo is considered for deletion!!

After both being laid up for 5 and more years at Piraeus and Perama respectively , Panagia Agiasou (ΙΜΟ 7351848) and Makedonia (IMO 8822052) left for their final trip under towage. The weird thing is that the destination of both tugs (Aegeon Pelagos and Hector) is Alexandroupolis where another SAOS Ferries ship is laid up.The logic sense is that both vessels will go to Aliaga in the next days. I think that all non Greek shipspotters that have visited Piraeus and its suburbs ports may have wondered about these 2 ships and their fate..

I have filmed both ships last ever departure:
