A light plumb bow maximizing water line length. Flat light beamy stern with all the weight midships.

It's actually started in the oil
industry geared towards hauling more cargo. More support/supply/multi-purpose vessel companies are starting to have more plumb bows to have more tankage below and to have a longer deck
space. They most probably used an existing Damon hull design and tailored it for whatever it is Sea Shepard does. Supposedly they handle seas better, I unfortunately haven't sailed on one with and Ax bow or X bow.
Here's to hoping they have a successful sea trial, those can bring out the bugs
