SD or Modified "V"?

There's been some difference of opinion about what kind of hull design the OA 42 Altus has. Her specs says she has a SD hull while other write ups indicate that it is a modified "V". I've written to Ocean Alexander with the question but at present haven't heard anything back from them.

Does anyone know the answer?

My hull has tunnels and not much deadrise aft.

The video shows a sister ship underway and to me it looks like she has a Modified "V".

same thing? A semi-displacement hull could have a modified v shape?

but that looks like a planing hull from the video! They are flying!

...marketing lingo without performance numbers.....

Absolutely a modified "vee" could be anything...heck it isn't defined in any particular way....

Throwing a lot of water in a still picture is hard to interpret....without great perspective.
