Predator's most striking feature is certainly her dramatic reverse bow, which, according to Henk De Vries, head of Royal De Vries shipyard, wasn't always a part of the plan. The team at De Voogt Naval Architects first imagined her bow with a conventional shape above the water and large bulb beneath the surface but soon scrapped that design in favor of her current "modified-X type bow." Said revision wasn't just aimed at giving her an interesting look: Predator's X-type bow lengthens her waterline and reduces wave resistance. The increased efficiency, coupled with Predator's four MTU Series 595 diesels, give her a trial-verified top speed of more than 28 knots and a continuous cruising speed of 26 knots.
