Scapa Flow 1939 (125sq miles) must be a contender for Europe's largest harbour.

"Scapa Flow has a shallow sandy bottom not deeper than 60 metres (200 ft) and most of it about 30 m (100 ft) deep, and is one of the great natural harbours/anchorages of the world, with sufficient space to hold a number of navies."


The Flotta oil terminal can accommodate Suezmax class tankers of 200,000 DWT with draughts of 20.1 metres.


The English Channel was too shallow for the largest tankers.
