Crist S.A. begins production of polar passenger ship with an innovative X-BOW hull for a Norwegian shipowner. The 125-meter long and 20-meter-wide NB 312 will be able to cruise in difficult polar conditions, while taking on board more than 100 passengers in luxury conditions.
What is important, the unit will be equipped with a hull from the X-BOW line known so far from units intended for the offshore industry. The use of this solution in the passenger ship will reduce the impact of waves on the hull, which will increase the comfort of travel and will lead to a significant reduction in noise and vibration. The shape and closed nature of X-BOW is also intended to minimize the risk of wave splashing, avoiding the danger or nuisance of slippery or icy seams.
