    could this be the future of ship design?

    I saw these in MER, I think they are only going to be used on the anchor handling ships in the North Sea, as the design is most efficient with the high frequency waves there. I can't see it catching on elsewhere as it's not the most efficient design in terms of cargo space-which anchor handlers do not have as the top priority.

      I've seen one of these in Peterhead, it looks like a comedy whale! I think there are a few superyachts in the pipeline with that design and it would be perfect for anything that has forward accommodation such as PSV's and anchor crankers.

        hydrodynamics seems to be paving the way...

        apparently it's more fuel efficient and stable in bad weather - not a bad thing for crew and companies!
