The Navy’s coolest looking vessel heads to Washington | Navy Times

It’s arguably the Navy’s coolest surface vessel and comes with potentially the coolest name.

Meet the M80 Stiletto.

The 88-foot Little Creek-based high-speed craft, owned by the Naval Sea Systems Command, is currently used to test new technologies for the Navy — specifically for Navy Special Warfare forces.

The ship is currently preparing for a trip up the Chesapeake Bay and Potomac River to Washington for the annual Sea, Air and Space symposium, which kicks off April 9.

And it will be open for tours, Navy officials say.

Capable of speeds of up to 60 knots, the craft was designed to transport Navy SEALs to battle and potentially serve as their next operational craft.
