    It due to water tight boat contruction and the right calculation for stability... The boat is far too near land and would have problem if ran aground...

    They are designed for such task, they have a low cg and lot's of floatation above waterline that helps the boat to self righting itself, I have heard comments from some sailors that they are a "*****" to ride on in certain conditions because they "roll" really fast, but by no means indicates is a bad design is just they are designed for an specific task and certainly they are excellent boats

    Those are pictures of the 47 foot Coast Guard rescue vessels used in the United States (some other countries have also adopted this design). Check out the following site for some more good pictures:

    Yes. You're right incredible images and of course incredible 47' motorboat. Would you mind telling me who has designed this kind of yatch? Do you have any numbers of her?

    Good fortune

    Fortunately you do not have to recognize a lifeboat when you need one.
