          For some reason, I've always thought Wilson was a Dutch company, but as far as I can see on the net, they are a Norwegian company with 70 years of operation.

          Impressive fleet too: https://www.wilsonship.no/en/fleet

            Nice photo of Samskip Frost!

            One thing that I like with that ship, is that she have "barter" at the bow (literally a mustachios).... I mean the white triple-lines all the way at the bow.

                A different kind of x-bow... with sharper edges and topped with a wave breaker.

                  Don't like the X-bow and this is even worse.
                  The Captain don't like it eather.
                  For the looks and how it sails, in the waves.buyancy and stability

                Wanting to know more about this x-bow I Googled around and found this:
                https://ulstein.com/innovations/x-bow
                They all went overboard about it. (sorry about the unintentional pun, it's just a common English expression of pleasure!)
                I agree it's not exactly beautiful .

                  Ah, yes, I see.
                  By the way, that site says the first cruise liners with an x-bow will start operating from 2019. Stand by with the cameras!

                  There are 10 small Cruise ships with X-Bow on order in China. (4 already confirmed and 6 options expected to be called soon)
                  Unfortunately none of those confirmed are likely to be trading in Europe, at least initially.
                  PS> The first yacht with X-Bow is almost completed and will probably be around soon.

                  You mean yacht with a capital Y, I expect. I thought that half the fun of a 2-3 person yacht was leaning backwards over the side, oilskin skimming the waves and in danger of being swamped by spray at any minute - or being the first to drown after capsizing!

                got many images of this one bow up, stern down, bow down stern up riding the waves.
                but only a few are good enough, and that are those when she lays flat in the water
