ABSTRACT
The article presents information on Stiletto, one of the several advanced hull forms of the United States. Features of Stiletto include its design, box-like appearance, and craft's sponsorship. The pressure gradients are minimized by the outboard hulls' shape to reduce drag and the craft's wave signature.
