I remember that the article mentioned something about the design appearance modeling a whale, but I do see what you mean. It's different....I like it!

There is a yacht that did launch in 2008 that is 390 feet long called "A" designed by Philippe Starck that has a similar shaped bow.

Here are a few pics of "A" including specifications. The picture showing a bed....that is just one of the guest cabins and not the owner's suite.

If you would like to see more of the PAVO Limo Yacht tender by Nor-Tech take a look at our website www.pavotenders.com We will also build a "Sports" model with some very innovative design features. We did the reverse bow to maximise running surface. Our boat will be available from 32 to 42 feet via our adjustable mold to fit a particular yachts garage door size. To maximise ride quality we want the most rnning surface possible. We also offer a straight or flat bow for this same tender.

I understand the rationale behind the vertical axe bow, but the stability and sea keeping of the reverse bow makes me a little scared.
