Ships manoeuvering - Turning capabilities of containership

We have summarized below some of the topics from our user and relevant feedback. Read frequently asked questions and reviews from our visitor


I am seeking information on the turning capabilities of a typical 6,500 TEU container ship at slower speeds like for example the MSC Michaela or other Hyundai 6500 series ship.

This information is needed for some harbor design we are working on. If you do not have this info or can direct me to another location, I will also be grateful.

Your help will be much appreciated. Thank you,
