Self Storage At Sea - Epic Sized Ship


Imagine a basketball court next to a full sized American football stadium and a spectator packed ice hockey arena – all below deck (source worldslargestship.com). Now you have an idea of the size of the ship that Maersk is building. Stor-Age is proud to be the leading self storage company in South Africa but our efforts pale in the wake of this giant in storage.

The current largest ship in the world is the Marco Polo but it will shortly be superseded by a Triple-E class ship from Maersk. The triple e stands for, "energy, efficiency and economy of scale" (source wired.com). The new largest ship in the world will be able to carry 18,000 containers, it will be 400 metres long, 59 metres wide and 73 metres high. Just one of the propellers for the new ship weighs in at 70 tons.

So if you are looking for some storage space then the world's largest ship is a good place to start. However if you don't want storage lost at sea then perhaps Stor-Age has a self storage solution for you.
