MAERSK EMDEN inbound Southampton 28 Oct 2017

Photo credits 

Pam Massey shared Ships 'n More Ships's album to the group: All kind of ship photo's.

Report receieved today that Rickmers have sold 4 (possibly all 8 - needs to be confirmed) of their 13,492 teu Maersk Edinburgh Class ships to Maersk on or around 20/09/2017. 
Total crew replacements are imminent.

Vessels in this Class:
Maersk's Edinburgh, Emden, Eindhoven, Essen, Edmonton, Elba, Evora & Essex.
Maersk Evora already transferred to Danish flag, but Rickmers still showing as managers.

Indeed all eight have been sold to Maersk.
What I understand is that Maersk will only do the management of 5 of them (most probably also only 5 under Danish flag).
The remaining three will be managed by a German ship management company.

Good morning Roy, thanks for the confirmation & extra info. The slow demise of Rickmers :-(

MAERSK EVORA and MAERSK EINDHOVEN listed on Seaweb as sold 9/2017 by Rickmers to Hong Kong companies affiliated to Fortune Ocean Shipping Ltd, Dalian; management of EVORA now shown as A P Moller, though not yet for EINDHOVEN.

MAERSK EDINBURGH and MAERSK EMDEN to Hong Kong subsidiaries of Minsheng Financial Leasing Co Ltd, Beijing
MAERSK ESSEN, MAERSK EDMONTON and MAERSK ELBA to Hong Kong subsidiaries of Bank of Communications Financial Leasing Co Ltd, Shanghai

MAERSK ESSEX to Ocean Hun Shipping Ltd, Hong Kong, but parent not yet identified.

Only the one flag change noted so far.
