M80 Stiletto's Hull Design = No Wake at 50 Knots.

M80 Stiletto, a 80-foot vessel created by M Ship Co., can stay steady at its top speed of 50 knots with virtually no wake.

Stiletto's hull has a double-M shape that channels the wake under the craft. There it mixes with oncoming air to produce froth that lifts the ship part-way out of the water, reducing drag and increasing stability, says Greg Glaros, the programme's leader at the defence department's Office of Force Transformation.
