probably maximum load for minimum exterior size, especially as she is fitted with multiple mezzanine floors, as she is a car transporter bringing new cars into Europe from Asia and the far east................all adds up to maximum pay load, with crew accommodation on the top deck, I presume.

I suppose if you think about it cars are not that heavy and full empty space inside them, equivalent say a cargo of pallets are stacked pretty tightly at perhaps 1 Ton each would weigh a lot more.

There are any number of similar strange looking vessels which look totally top-heavy. Not all as streamlined as this, but all car carriers.
