If your going to punch through a swell, the VSV looks like the way to do it. I read some dope on it a few years back. I think it was in Combat Craft Magazine.

the VSV.... Very Slender Vesssel was orginally  built for the Brits by VT Halmatic
 53'Lenght and 10 beam designed for SBS as a High speed intercepter.
 This 60 knot boat punches thru the waves rather than ride over them.

When I see these other patrol boats, it makes me think that the U.S. is behind the power curve on patrol boat design and implementation.
