LEGO Announced To Sell A Brick Version Of The World’s Largest Ship, Maersk Triple-E

The Maersk Triple-E is the world’s largest ship. It measures over 1312 feet (400-meter) long and 194 feet (59-meter) wide, and can carry a whopping 18,000 20-foot-long containers of goods. However, lately LEGO has announced that it would sell a brick version of the world’s largest ship.

Maersk Triple-E

The Maersk Triple E features dual 32 megawatts (43,000 hp) ultra-long stroke two-stroke diesel engines, driving two propellers at a design speed of 19 knots (35 km/h; 22 mph). The vessel is expected to lower fuel consumption by 37% and carbon dioxide emissions per container by 50%. However, now people can own this enormous ship in LEGO form – though it is quite a bit smaller than the real deal.

The freshly announced LEGO Maersk Line Triple-E model (#10241) measures about 25″(L) x 8″(H) x 3″(W) when complete, and consists of 1,518 individual LEGO bricks. The LEGO model Maersk Triple E  comes with rotating gold propellers, twin 8-cylinder engine models, adjustable rudders, moving cranes, detachable lifeboards, and of course lots of little shipping containers. The set also includes a display stand with a fact plaque, as well as the gold coin that has been placed under the mast of Maersk Line ships for good luck.
