In general, a recreational style sit inside kayak with enclosed bulkhead at both front and back will have more flotation. The larger the area enclosed by the bulkhead, the more flotation.

Those boats with just those gray foam pillars have less flotation.

You can add flotation to most any boat through adding float bags, but in some ways they are not as good as bulkheads (such as when you go to drain the boat - water does get around the float bags).
