I don't know merchants very well at all. Does this machinery layout make sense? It seems like, for this two-shaft setup, the diesels (I assume she's diesel) must run inboard extension shafts forward, where they would pass through gearboxes that would carry power outboard to the wing shafts. For a superstructure so far aft, only a single shaft would seem to make sense (and maybe not even then).

Alternately, relocate the superstructure forward a compartment or two (I think probably two). This will improve vision over the bow, increase the number of containers that can be shipped (since there could be two full stacks aft of the superstructure), and improve loaded versus unloaded trim :)
on this type of design, it would make sense. other container ships with rear mounted superstructure tend to be single shaft and have the propeller and rudder so far aft, that they look like the have an flat "ass"

An extremely nice surprise to this AU go into merchant ships. I would like to see more of course. I do believe that eric_t's remark is valid, and also think that this kind of ships are usually have single propeller (my knowledge of modern, all aft merchant ships is limited).
Any way this is a wonderful turn of events, seeing merchant ships here, and they look very well drawn (as can be expected)

Echoing everyone's praise, these are indeed fantastic.

Quick question: Is the ship based on a real class of vessels? I assume not, but the class name makes me curious.

I have moved the superstructure forward and changed the 2 screw layout to a single screw layout. Thanks all for your feedback. Now for my LNG tanker (taking a month of Sundays!).
