I'll be able to tell my grandchildren (when they come along) that I remember when there was ice at the North Pole. They'll never believe me.

Is there a reason for that bow design? It's not your typical container design, nor is it the standard ice-breaking one.

The design is a compromise on being able to sail in ice (broken channels) and have a decent fuel economy for whenever there is no ice.

Makes sense. Thanks for replying.

I would imagine that it's designed to work with mostly broken ice - she employed ice breakers around the Siberian peninsula, apparently, and the Baltic ports she'll be visiting during the winter all have icebreaking services. https://www.facebook.com/ShippingTV/photos/p.1865745320187402/1865745320187402

A smart & businesslike vessel. I'm assuming she may not have the bulb bow in view if possible ice? Noel

There is no bulb protruding "forward" of the bow. But when you see her in drydock from straight ahead, you will see that there is a build-in bulb - if that makes any sense.

Yes, actually she does under the water line and it's the latest naval design trend for slow cruising, -under 20 knots! that's the design "philosophy behind this the bow design. But it were Rolls&Royce Marine who introduced this design first with a "build in bulb bow" (now part of Norwegian Kongsberg 2018). She is build in China but designed by Naval architec's at OMT in Odense Denmark -a spin off from Lindoe Ship Yard, the former "Maersk Ship Yard" so same old naval architects :-) You can clearly see the 'build in bulb" on this youtube clip from her shipyard launch: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Qfiv_68r-vQ

There's a small bulb effect below water level. https://www.facebook.com/ShippingTV/photos/p.1865745320187402/1865745320187402
