The Yoho is what is known as a FSO (floating storage offloader) this is usually an old tanker that has ended its days commercially, some FSO as the one in the photo have been extensively modified so as to Fit for Purpose, others can be old tankers that are just anchored on a oil field either on or near a offshore oil installation and act as floating tank farms, however these vessels are being withdrawn slowly depending on their general condition and converted into FPSO or FSO similar to the other pictures above.
