1. HIGH-QUALITY DELIVERIES
Our innovative designs, finishing quality and a delivery date to place trust in, are great benefits to the ship owner. The Ulstein quality, and our reputation for the delivery of sophisticated, high-quality vessels, is renowned. All our vessels comply with international class regulations and rules.
2. KEEPING OPERATIONAL SCHEDULE
The high operational reliability adds extra value to our vessels. The X-BOW® bow shape eliminates slamming and bow impact. The vessels can operate safely, quickly and efficiently even in adverse conditions. The uncertainty in keeping schedule margins are reduced.
3. A SAFE AND COMFORTABLE RIDE
The hull shape reduces vibrations and noise caused by the sea, and there will be no sea spray on deck. The calmer movements ensure a comfortable journey and undisturbed sleep, to the well-being for passengers and crews alike. The absence of sea spray reduces the risk of slippery or icy decks.
