Straight bow, the so called "Axe Bow Concept"

- gives the yacht a dynamic and modern design with enormous space gain in the cabins due to the extra length of the hull sector.

  • the Axe Bow Concept decreases the level of peak vertical accelerations over 50 % compared to conventional hulls

  • reduction of steering corrections for keeping track in stern quartering waves

  • up to a speed of 35 knots, the flat water resistance is significantly lower compared to conventional hull forms

  • much more comfortable life on board combined with reduction of fuel consumption
