I like a bit of assymmetrical highlights in a design, I think it gives a it of flair, a bit distinctness. Heavy lift vessels are also a favourite of mine so with those 2 likable aspects present I should love this vessel. But I don’t, I think that with this vessel they have gone a bit over the top, or actually over to the right. Or left, depending on the way you look at her.
According to the dictionary a javelin is “a light spear thrown with the hand and used as a weapon” or “a metal or metal-tipped spear thrown for distance in track and field competitions” …I don’t see how anybody could call this ugly vessel light, let alone throw it somewhere!
She has 3 sisterships, all 3 as ugly as her, please see below for your verdict!

BTW: all 4 of them are build in Galati, Romania but the cranes are installed in Rotterdam. This is how they looked without the cranes:
