Running into a head sea on that ship, would be like running at it with a spoon on your bow. The way that the gingerbread runs down from the deck above makes a perfect scoop.

The foredeck is at the same level with the aft mooring deck, immediately above the car deck. It doesn't look particularly low to me if you cover the tall deckhouse with your hand - it's probably higher than the minimum bow height determined by the freeboard calculations.

I agree Luis. Looks a bit of a mess.

Only a naval architect who does not know what a storm is, can designing a ship with such a low bow.
