MSC Danit is a large container ship. The ship was ordered by Mediterranean Shipping Company S.A. and finished at the beginning of March 2009. The ship was built in Daewoo Shipbuilding & Marine Engineering Ltd, South Korea under yard number 4135, for Dordellas Finance Corp., Panama.


MSC Danit is the relatively new "New Panamax"-sized container ship. The ship has overall length of 365.50 m (1,199.1 ft); moulded beam of 51.20 m (168.0 ft); maximum draft of 16.00 m (52.49 ft); deadweight of 165,517 metric tons; gross tonnage of 153,092 gross tons; and cargo capacity of 14,000 TEUs. Daewoo made some innovations in the ship's design, placing the superstructure in the midships and the engine room and funnels in the aft - this gives better stability and lower trim for higher speed, when the ship is fully loaded. The ship is owned by Dordellas Finance Corp., Panama (Management & Operated by MSC Mediterranean Shipping Co SA, avenue Eugene-Pittard, 40, 1206 Geneva, Switzerland.)


The main engine of the container ship is MAN B&W 12K98MC-C with full output power of 72,240 kW. This power is enough for the ship to reach maximum speed of 25 knots.


The ship was christened on 26 March, 2009 by the vice-president of Daewoo Shipbuilding & Marine Engineering Ltd, president of MSC Israel, Edni Simkin, and his daughter Danit after whom the ship was named.
