Het grootste schip ter wereld is het offshore constructieschip de 'Pioneering Spirit' van rederij Allseas. De supercatamaran heeft een lengte van 382 m en een breedte van 123 m, even groot als twee supertankers en in oppervlakte gelijk aan acht voetbalvelden. De Pieter Schelte kan grote platformen en jackets van zo'n 48.000 ton in één keer van hun sokkel lichten en op land afleveren bij een werf waar het sloopwerk eenvoudiger, veiliger, en dus aanzienlijk sneller en goedkoper kan plaatsvinden. Het vaartuig kan ook pijpleidingen voor olie- en gastransport leggen op een diepte tot 3500 meter, met een recordsnelheid van ruim 7 kilometer per dag. Het monsterschip werd de afgelopen zeven jaar bij de Zuid-Koreaanse werf van Daewoo gebouwd. De totale kosten bedroegen circa 2,4 miljard euro.
