Thx for the comment, including the "Balcony one"  8)
I aggree that the hull shape is interesting. I was actually a bit worried about the steering abilities of the vessel because of the deep bow. The vessel is however easily controlled, so mayby the deep stem acts as a pivoting point in the stearing process.

Nitty gritty, Fendering tires
This was an easy nitty gritty task, altough there's a discrepancy between the design and the actual vessel. Below is the designed fendering only featuring tires as fenders.

Silni
An actual vessel in this case the Silni has another configuration of fendering. The vessel is depicted below. Origen http://www.boatdesign.net/forums/attachment.php?s=4e8c51ba0204069074d4c0de50738cd2&attachmentid=13370&d=1179556670

I opted for the original configuration as tires was readily available at the local 'plastic kit pusher'.
The aft tires are spares for a lorry, whereas the small ones were meant for a Unimog.

The bow design cuts through the waves like an "axe".
It should make for a smoother less stressed ride.

Axe bow advantage
The Axe bow concept is specially developed for smaller high speed vessels. The aim of the design is to reduce vertical acceleration (bumping) of the vessel.
A conventional design will, in high seas, follow the wawes up and down, where as the axebow will cut through in stead. The Damen yard claims that for vessels of similair sizes, the vertical accelaration is reduced by 30%, thus enabling the Axe bow vessel to a higher speed in high seas without (to much)  bumping. A video from a sea trial can be found at http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=lcvq_Wp-nxQ

The attack of the Vallensbæk swan: is he still at it?
Did they ever get that jet ski back from the swan?
I rather like the look of the red one. Boat not swan!
