More about the Arklow Valiant

For these vessels, the basic principle of the Groot Cross-bow was applied. Featuring a straight-stem that slices the waves coupled by an upper slope the deflect wave resistance. In this aspect, the Eco Trader series with straight bow still displays the same typical lines op to the main deck, but the bow lines above this level no longer show the backward inclination, but rather continue going straight up. The new design provides an improved vision to the bow anchors while anchoring.
