Fast ocean crossing boat

From the San Jose Mercury news, a boat capable of crossing ocean at a speed of 60 knots or 70 mph These are called Wave Adaptive Modular vessels.

The catamaran-like vessel has inflatable hulls, sits only about a foot deep in the water, is powered by two 355-horsepower diesel engines and has a range of up to 5,000 miles. Its relatively light weight, its range and its mobility suggest that potential uses could include search and rescue, ocean research and military applications.
