MV APL Raffles

The third in a series of ten 13,900 TEU container carriers being built by Hyundai Samho Heavy Industries in Mokpo, South Korea for the Singapore-based carrier, APL has debuted at Southampton. APL Raffles (2013/151,963 gt) is named after Sir Thomas Stamford Raffles, the British statesman and founder of the city of Singapore.

Delivered in mid-May, APL Raffles joins sister-ships, APL Temasek and MOL Quest, on the New World Alliance and G6-super alliance. The next in the series, MOL Quality is due to call at Southampton at the end of the month.
