We all know that people had learned how to build ship a long time ago. Since then a lot of things has changed and now ship plays one of the key roles in our lives. From a ship that looks like it was sinking like RV Flip, to a ship that even able to transport the Eiffel Tower like Sea Wise Giant. So, in today’s article we are taking you to watch top 10 most unusual ships in the world.
When you see this vessel, you might think if this ship needs help as it looks like it is flipping vertically. But.. it doesn’t. This is just how this ship looks like. This ship is called RV Flip or better known as the Flip Ship. It will submerge half of its part underwater to explore the seabed vertically.
This ship is mainly used to open the ocean research and no more than that. Because of its innovative and unique designs, people can be quite comfortable to do their research under the sea and can stay and live on this ship at same time.
It may not seem feasible for a ship to transport 75,000 tons of cargo at a time – but it certainly is.. The Blue Marlin is a massive vessel that is used to transport other vessels, oil platforms, other large facilities or even aircraft carriers!
It has been called upon for a number of tough jobs, including carrying the Navy’s USS Cole back home and transporting an Australian aircraft carrier from Spain all the way back to the South Pacific continent! Of course, the ship’s dimensions are massive.
It even has a deck as big as two soccer fields and make it pretty tough job for any captain to control this big ship. This ship has unique feature to make it able to dive half into the water while carrying oil, rigs, or other damaged warships. Knock Nevis is a special ship which is made specifically to carry the black gold.
This big ship costs much more economical and more profitable to carry oil on the water compared to the other ways. This ship who also known as the sea wise giant, is also among the longest and biggest ships ever built with length of 458 meters and able to carry up to 565.000 tons!
Did you know? This vessel is so powerful that it even could carry an Eiffel Tower! With that amazing feature, this enormous ship can accommodate oils everywhere in the world worth more than 125 million dollar at one time!
Built in 1976, Nexans Skagerrak is considered as one of the most powerful and advanced cable laying vessels in the world!
This ship has capability to hold up to 7.000 tons of cable, and that is one of the most special abilities from this ship.
The coil diameter of this ship is 29 meters and can be on board at any sea around the world with maximum accuracy and even in conditions of increased complexity.
Just like what it’s called, this ship is used as transportation for cars by the sea as its main purpose. This ship was built by Kyokuyo, a Japanese company and has a length of 140 meters with a mass of 21.000 tons.
As how enormous it is, this ship is able to carry more than 2.000 vehicles at a time and can be operated with less than 24 people.
Stella Deneb is the largest livestock transport vessel in the world. This big ship was built in 1980 and has a length of 213.20 meters. It even can carry 25,000 cattle or 120,000 sheep, or a combination of both, at speeds of more than 20 knots.
Originally, it was a container vessel, but it was converted to a livestock carrier in 2002. Can you imagine how big it is? It even equals to more than 20 buses that are laid out parallel!
Ramform Hyperion is a Research Vessel built in 2017 by Mitsubishi Shipbuilding Company. It has wide stern and steady platform to be used as accommodation on any sensitive equipment.
This ship can move smoothly and silently on the water, so it won’t create noises which can interfere in Geolocation. If you are pumped on the water, you can really feel a steady surface under your feet on Ramform Hyperion, which hardly swings.

Chikyu is a Japanese scientific drillship which has the ability to scan the seabed up to 7000 meters deep. It makes the ship as one of the world’s deepest drilling vessels!
Not only that, this unique ship could scan seismogenic areas of the Earth’s crust to give advance warning of future earthquakes that can be felt by the seabed.
Did you know? In March 2011, this ship was damaged by the earthquake and tsunami in Japan. It was repaired at Shingu, Wakayama dock and returned for service in June 2011.
This MPI Adventure has a bit different shape than any other ships. As you can see, it has legs. This ship has the capability to stand on six legs tower above the sea. However, its legs aren’t meant to be used as legs for walking.
The MPI Adventure’s legs are used to hold and withstand any natural disasters on the sea. This ship is made to provide help for Europe with cheap ecologically clean energy.
Similar to Blue Marlin, Vanguard is another ship used for sea transportation.. But, it is lot bigger! It was built in 2012 and holds the title as the world’s largest cargo ship ever built. This super huge vessel is 70% bigger than any analogs in its class.
Vanguard is also semi-submersible, which is allowing the crew to lower the deck below the surface of the water without risking the ship. This is really useful especially when Vanguard has to capture floating cargo such as the capsized a very popular ship accident, Costa Concordia vessel.
