Sea Shadow II

The Sea Shadow, an experimental stealth ship built in Redwood City by Lockheed in 1985 (and made public in 1993) to test the stealth technology of Navy vessels.

 

The ship has 2 twin hulls, each with propeller and stabilizer.

 

It contains only 12 bunks, a microwave oven, small fridge and a single table. It was never commissioned by the Navy and was moved to the Mothball Fleet in 2006 after spending a short time at the San Diego Naval Station.
