The thing is 100' long X 50' wide.

They are calling it the "wave-adaptive modular vessel class WAM-V".

It has a suspension system that makes for a stable platform in rough seas like a sea sate 6 condition.

I belive the performance goal was not to high, 35 knots or so with twin 450 cumins engines. I think the displacement target was like 20k lbs. Will know more next week.

Press day is next Thursday in SF.
