  • The two ships of the U.S.T. Atlantic class, the U.S.T. Atlantic and U.S.T. Pacific, were the largest ships ever built in the American Hemisphere. Newport News Shipbuilding were the builders, the only American shipbuilders with the facilities for ULCC construction. A third vessel of the class ordered by Zapata Ocean Carriers was canceled. At full load, the ships drew nearly 75 feet and were unable to visit any ports in the continental United States, unless lightered or light ship. Stood on end, each vessel would have been nearly as tall as the Empire State Building. Wikipedia
