A heavy-lift ship, Blue Marlin Ibiza,  has been introduced that can submerge into the water and lets the ships, oil rigs and yachts float over its flat cargo deck.

The heavy ship sinks itself into the water with the help of numerous ballast tanks. The tanks can easily be flooded.

Once the cargo is loaded on the deck, air is pumped into these tanks which results in lift up of cargo deck.

The situation becomes even worse when the objects are unable to be designed and manufactured in smaller modules. Sea ships are considered to be the best solution for transporting large objects but they are also unable to transport oil rigs. To combat this issue, a heavy-lift ship has been introduced that can submerge into the water and lets the ships, oil rigs and yachts float over its flat cargo deck.
