Her stern - which is indeed rather ungainly-looking - was added for stability.

This ship was originally built in 1948 as STOCKHOLM (of ANDREA DORIA fame). She was entirely rebuilt - stripped to the bare hull - in 1994. During the refit, she capsized in the drydock and her classification society ordered the sponson to compensate for poor stability.

I believe the stability issues were due to the fact that in her present form she has a far larger superstructure than she did as originally built.

That's a rather unusual stern.
Is she in a better balance with this "skirt" on?
