From an engineering standpoint;
It is a 5 compartment ship, with a boatload of government Aluminum, making it incredibly light.
4 screws in 4 steam turbines, in 2 compartments, rip most of history out, (leaving one powerplant as a museum).
Shed gobs of weight, install utility scale storage, matching then exceeding diesel output.
Here is the caveat, we not only have the 3rd fastest car in the world, but the fastest ship on the globe, "two markets". Also a little side benefit, currently the US Navy has the fastest ship on the planet, the U.S.S. United States could probably beat current top speed by 20%.
