I was just readng their Military plans!
A 90 footer with a cruise speed of 150 knots!

Future Force Multiplier Example:

SeaPhantom scaled up; (2 boats): 90'LOA x 34'BOA, 150 knot cruise, armed w/ ship-to-ship, surface-to-surface, surface-to-air systems, and six, internally deployable, 85 knot similarly armed drone craft-each (twelve drones, two mothers total). Acquisition cost similar to Blackhawk helicopter but yeilds force multiplier by factor of 30+. Blackhawk goes home after 2 hours- out of fuel. Indefinite loiter capability of our system puts them on station 8-to-12 hours or more. Unmannned drones indefinite. Effectively neutralizing a carrier battle group, or major national harbor for the price of a Blackhawk.

Assuming AWACS or JSTARS battle-theater control, with satellite downlink; cruise missle attack on the SeaPhantom system will fail. Simply vectors away @ 150knots from sub-sonic missle. Air-to-surface, ship-to-ship attacks fail against the SeaPhantom as well. Inherently low radar signature foils targeting systems. You cannot kill what you cannot target. Very high speed and extreme manuverability due to the craft's bank turn system foil manually targeted attempts. Ultra-high survival probabilities are apparent.

Our proprietary technology is available for rapid exploitation/deployment. All sub-systems are well proven, highly tested concepts. Designed in unique assemblege to produce a low-risk/ high-yeild developement program.

That boat is down @ gulf X marine/Bravo Shop right now. I was looking at this boat last weekend. The boat is really amazing inside. You feel like you are sitting inside of a f-18.

Dave (the designer/Builder) will be out in front of fort myers beach with the boat in the next few weeks.
