The first purely non-warship entry for this thread. This one is taken from a 1970s thriller novel by John Wingate.

Displacement(Empty): 88,025 tonnes, Displacement (Fully laden): 674,025 tonnes

Note: The forward island (Containing the bridge) is located 100ft (30.5m) from the bow. The ships helipad (Large enough to take a Westland WS-61 Sea King Helicopter) is located on the port side. Built in a US Yard, registered in Panama.
This one may be easier than some as the artist who did the cover made his own attempt to depict the ship moving at some speed.
