The X-BOW® makes a huge difference in sea behavior. It splits the wave energy and reduces the slamming impact. Successfully proven in more than 100 ships, the hull shape has recently become a game changer for expedition cruising. Yachts will be next.

The vessel is curved backwards with more volume in the fore ship. The bow slices the waves, to continue its smooth course. And because it uses less fuel to get through the waves, it also minimises emissions.

As the bow cuts through the waves instead of having the waves crushing at the hull, sea spray is reduced on deck. In safe conditions, the passengers can linger about on the observation decks, enjoying the surroundings, and taking photos with an excellent view down on the bow tip.
