A very large auto ship is visiting the Port of Tacoma today.
The Wallenius Lines M/V Fidelio arrived last night on its maiden voyage to Tacoma.
Average car ships carry about 3,000 to 4,000 vehicles (or car-equivelent units). This one, however, carries 8,000 vehicles.
Just how big is it?
The ship is 747.4 feet long. That’s more than two football fields.
It weights 71,583 tons and has 13 car decks.
