The KTM X-Bow is currently making its debut at the Geneva Motor Show but I tripped across this other, lesser known bearer of the same name and thought some of you may be interested. The Ulstein X-Bow is a ship designed using the same principles employed by the far-ranging Vikings. According to what I found, the X-shape of the hull helps reduce the drag and improve airflow around the vessel. Thus, fuel is saved, transit time is decreased, stability is increased. What more could you ask for in a big honkin' ship?

If you're in the market for a sweet ark, you might want to hurry because these things are flying off the shelves. Twenty are to be delivered over the next two years. Want to see this baby in some high sea action? Hit the jump for some video with a kicking sound track.
