The largest container ship in the world (Emma Maersk) operating at the largest port in the world (Rotterdam). 11 cranes going at the same time.....

Some information:
Length -- 397m
Width -- 63m
Deadweight -- 123,200 tonnes
Engine -- 14 cylinder diesel, 110,000 BHP
Top speed -- 50kph
Estimated cost -- over US$ 145 million ($145,000,000)
Capacity -- 15,000 TEU (1 TEU = 1 x 20ft container)

Apparently the silicon paint covering the part of the hull below the waterline lowers the drag in the water so much that the vessel economizes 1.2 million litres of fuel per year! (1,200,000 Litres/Year).
