The tank top is also certified to carry loads up to 15 tonnes per square metre and the vessel has classification approval for dangerous goods and loading aground.

The CF 3850 has been recently redesigned with an overall length of 89.7 meters, a beam of 12.5 meters, a design draft of 5.48 meters, a cargo hold capacity of 5,250 cubic meters, the ability to maintain a speed of more than 10 knots upwind when fully loaded, the ability to carry a wide range of cargoes, a maximum of 172 containers on a single voyage, and the ability to meet the latest stability requirements of the SOLAS/IMO regulations.
