Actually those flotter are place on old ferry, Ro/Ro ship to improve their stability. Those side tank help to reduce free water effect that can occur if the ship hit something.

New design? Do these floaters help in stability?

I love the way they've had to put bouyancy aids on the side to stop it rolling too much :lol:
