The term Capesize describes a vessel in the range of 80,000 and 175,000 dwt in size, that is too large for the Panama Canal or Suez Canal and must navigate through the Cape of Good Hope and Cape Horn

Capesize vessels are typically above 150,000 long tons deadweight (DWT), and ships in this class include bulk carriers transporting coal, ore, and other commodity raw materials. A standard Capesize bulker is around 175,000 dwt, although larger ships (normally dedicated to ore transportation) have been built. The large dimensions and deep drafts of such vessels mean that only the largest deep water terminals can accommodate them.
