In an effort to load these unique toys, OK retains the occasion methods it had in its earlier life as a transport ship. Meaning the rear part of the deck will be submerged so aquatic crafts can sail straight on.

“A automobile ramp permits land automobiles to be pushed onto the deck whereas seafaring vessels can sail straight on board because of the yacht’s capability to submerge the aft platform.
“The vessel takes on water ballast to permit the load to be floated over the deck; as soon as in place, the ballast is jettisoned and the ship’s deck and cargo return to sitting above the waterline. Smaller toys and tenders will be launched and recovered by way of a 40-tonne crane.”
