Plenty of vessels don't dry dock annually with no major technical problems.  That Ulysses hasn't this year and has a technical issue is a coincidence as much as anything.  It wasn't so long ago that Oscar Wilde had a major issue right after a dry dock!

Stena Adventurer hasn’t dry docked since 2016 and hasn’t had any major problems in the interim. I also seem to recall there was a 3 year gap from 2013 to 2016 when she wasn’t refitted as well.

Not everyone has their car serviced at regular intervals and even those who do may still experience problems.
