Very first inverted-bow AHTS designed by the Norwegian ship designer ULSTEIN, The Bourbon Orca, DP2 vessel equipped with a diesel-electric propulsion, is the flagship of BOURBON fleet. Its hull design, the famous "X-Bow", based on an optimal distribution of volumes at the bow of the vessel, results in a reduction in pitching in rough seas and reduced fuel consumption. It is therefore perfectly suited to the navigational conditions to rough weather. In addition to the Bourbon Orca, BOURBON operates 4 other inverted bow vessels, the Bourbon Calm, Bourbon ClearBourbon Front and Bourbon Rainbow PSVs.
