The world’s largest ship, the 565,000-tonne Knock Nevis, has been sold. The oil tanker is 1,504ft long – 50ft longer than the Empire State Building is tall.  She was built in 1979 as the oil tanker Seawise Giant, but was converted to a floating storage vessel five years ago and moored off Qatar. In that role she could hold 4.2m barrels of oil.
