I can’t remember which Bond movie it was that had a similar ship in it, but it may have been based on the USS Independence.

USS Independence (LCS-2) is the lead ship for the Independence variant of the littoral combat ship class. She is the sixth ship of the United States Navy to be named for the concept of independence. The design was produced by the General Dynamics consortium for the Navy’s LCS program, and competes with theLockheed Martin-designed Freedom variant.

The littoral combat ship (LCS) is a class of relatively small surface vessels intended for operations in the littoral zone (close to shore) by the United States Navy.  It was “envisioned to be a networked, agile, stealthy surface combatant capable of defeating anti-access and asymmetric threats in the littorals.”

It looks stealthy, stable, fast and very roomy.
