I assume, as with most maritime cargo these days, that this ship is set up for containerized cargo...roll on/roll off, as evidenced by the ramp at the stern...but I've never seen a bow configured like that. It actually makes a lot of sense, shielding the containers from the seas and weather....

It's called a Ro-Ro Cargo. The bow is indeed to protect the cargo on deck against the waves (these can be "unfriendly" in the North Sea)

GSPep: Thanks very much for that link to MarineTraffic.com...old fishing boat and Navy sailor here and I just spent an hour tracking shipping up and down the west coast of the US....probably sounds boring to some, but that's part of the fascination I have with travel and with maritime shipping...really a good website and enjoy it very much.

I have an equivalent tracking site for aviation...here it is:

http://www.flightradar24.com

Sorry to get off track...
