Yes, Roy, after I posted my comment, I saw that the "pinch" was above the loaded waterline, but anyway, it shapes the bow wave, and therefore the flow around the hull. And, as I have seen, all new large oil or bulk cargo ships built at Hyundai now have this "feature"...

Hi Vlad,
Your explanation makes sense, however should the "pinch", as you say it, not be lower then. It seems well above the the loaded draft line. Now it seems rather of no use, besides being indeed very ugly, at least under this angle.

Butt ugly !!! as our american friends would say.

Thanks all for your comments. Freaky or not, this is the shape of things to come.

Csaba, bulkers are known for having blunt bow shape; "pinching" their bow around fully loaded draft line maybe has something to do with improving the flow around the bow, imho.

What is the purpose of this kind of design?

Thanks for your comment, David. This "pinched nose" upper bow design feature can be seen on all VLCC tankers or capesize bulkers built at Hyundai these days...

Strange upper bow, like it has been squeezed in when soft.
