What you're probably looking at is a normal boat that's just cut a wave, leaving two 'fountains' of foamy spray thrust to either side.

The V-wake isn't visible, which might just be the angle of the sun, but other boats in the same image do have a visible V-wake from the bow, so I'm not entirely sure.

There are some very odd boats out there, to be sure!

Here's one odd one I found at Gidmodo. Read a little about it, including part of its power source.

In short it's not a great image. My offering is a guess, but I feel comfortable about it based on boats I've seen in other spots. :)
