The X-BOW ®

The X-BOW ®
The unique and proven characteristics of the X-BOW® offer significantly higher
transit speed in adverse weather conditions, as well as enhanced fuel economics.
The bow shape ensures soft entry into waves, thus reducing speed loss, pitch-
and heave accelerations, as well as eliminating slamming and vibration problems
associated with conventional bow flare.

The X-BOW® incorporates a forward superstructure and accommodation with


superior noise and vibration levels. The forward superstructure in conjunction with
reduced acceleration levels, greatly increases the cargo payload for the vessel and
reduces the risk of loss or damage of cargo.
