It's designed that way for stability, they actual ride above the waves on pontoons submerged beneath the surface. That way even in extremely choppy water the ship does not get tossed around at all.

Propulsion: Caterpillar 3618 marine Diesel engines<--those ROCK, I wonder how many it has though.

Maximum Speed: 53+ miles per hour (85+ kilometers per hour/45+ knots)<-WOW anyone who has ever been in a boat going 20mph, can say that 53 feels like you are going 100mph!

"Of course, stealth at sea requires much more than just reducing a ship's radar cross section. Sonar and infrared sensors can be equally threatening, so the approach to designing a stealthy ship demands that all signatures be reduced and managed in a balanced way.

One of the ways that Sea Shadow addresses signature control is with a unique hull design. The two thin struts that support its main deck structure stand on a pair of submerged, submarine-like pontoons in what is known as a Small Water plane Area Twin Hull (SWATH) configuration.

SWATH designs have long been known for exceptional stability in heavy seas, and in the case of Sea Shadow, they allowed the designers to slope the vessel's sides inward at an extreme angle, aiding the stealth characteristics.

Normally, a ship's sides are nearly vertical and meet the water at close to a 90 degree angle. This produces a bright radar echo called a broadside flash, which is easy to home in on. Newer ship designs, starting with the Arleigh Burke-class destroyers, feature sloped hulls, although the slope is less extreme than in Sea Shadow."

that be the one, that boat is supposed to be 100% undetectable,carries four 155 mm canons also will be able to house and launch multiple nuclear warheads and will probibly house those new mini nukes they have on the table, able to detonate over a specific area and limit exposure to with in the targets borders, history channel had a show on it, think theyve got plans for a carrier version of it also, good stuff.. i cant even imagine the rpice tag
