    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

    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!

    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.

    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!

    Don't know if this is a real x-bow.
    An x- bow has a curvy bow line, this one have sharp lines. There are several vessels of that shipping company.

    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 .

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

    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.
