This may be a prototype of the M80 Stileto which is being developed here along these docks. The length (88 feet) is almost exactly the same. Perhaps wihout the carbon fiber shell. "Looking like a cross between the Batmobile and a hovercraft, the M80 stiletto is composed of a carbon fiber composite that is both very light and strong. The 88-foot-long vessel, designed by San Diego’s M Ship Co., also features the company’s patented M-shaped hull, which provides for a fast and stable platform for mounting electronic surveillance equipment or weapons or for conducting special operations."

Sorry, that's not the stiletto. The stiletto is albost rectangular. Much more boxy without the tapered nose.

That's also a civilian boat yard.
