Loaded draft of container ships

Does anyone know if the reported loaded draft of a container vessel is often or ever reached in reality? I am specifically referring to vessels 10,000 TEU and larger. I assume the loaded draft accounts for the vessel fully stacked with each container assumed weighing its limit?

I am investigating passing vessel affects in the Bayonne region, NJ, wondering if it is realistic to use the fully laden draft of these large container ships as a realistic case.

Any input appreciated!

Ships using the Port of Felixstowe, UK, frequently make passage with drafts of 15.7 metres or occasionally more for both inward and outward passages (not necessarily the same ship or the same voyage). These are mainly, but not exclusively, ships with LOA 365-400m.They may pass others ships going in the opposite direction with similar drafts (but not always)
