Interesting. I have a feeling that it might be bit top-heavy, though.

My best piece of advice here is to try and make a simple topview. I think you'll find that it's going to be extremely wide in order to accomodate that superstructure.

drawing wise, it does not look too bad. I have a few comments though.
- first of all, crediting. the bilge keel and underwater hull of the stern for example are from my HrMs holland drawing. I would like to see crediting for that.
- the superstructure seems to be REALLY oversized.
- the NSSM launcher exhausts on the I-mast radar when fired, which is not an good idea
- why such an old (and, btw, heavy) gun on such an modern design?
- the funnels look huge, but the beam you are going to need to keep this ship stable will mean you have a lot of resistance and thus a lot of engine power needed, so that makes some sense, in a way :P

I think that's it, but I think you will run into other problems when you fix the above points, so there is a lot of work to be done. it is not looking bad (my own first try was a lot worse) but won't work yet :P

My apoligies on the crediting, I mean in no way to discredit someone, will change it as soon as possible.

-I will make an simple top-view to show you how I had the design in mind

-will change the NSSM launcher to a better position

-The gun is place-holder I will create my own, fictional gun. which will be more suited for the design

Timeframe :

2013 - Near future (AU)

Thanks for your opinions, and you will be seeing more from me! - with propers credits, once again my apoligies

The aft part of the super structure looks to be all hanger but is over twice the hieght of the helo shown. Is there a design reason for this? If not maybe reduce it to save some weight and place the NSSM there?

This is so the OPV can also take the merlin Helicopter, however I think I could move some stuff to make it fit better.

Generally I'd say, that this shape of superstructure (and generally of all above the waterline) probably would work better if it was a catamaran. ;)
