The 47-foot MLB is the standard lifeboat of the United States Coast Guard (USCG). This boat was purchased around 10 years ago and has been used was a back up pilot boat. The engines were replaced approximately 7 years ago with 750 HP John Deere engines detuned to 650 HP. 3,324 hours on engines.
The 47′ MLB is designed to weather hurricane force winds and heavy seas, capable of surviving winds up to 60 knots, breaking surf up to 20 ft and impacts up to three G's. If the boat should capsize, it self-rights in less than ten seconds with all equipment fully functional.
The boat's hull and superstructure are constructed entirely from 5456 marine grade aluminum. Designed with a hard chined deep "V" planing hull, the 47′ MLB exceeds its hull speed. The frame is composed of 17 vertical bulkhead frames, each of which is welded to the deck and hull, and five of which are watertight.
Employing "fly-by-wire" control systems,the boat can be operated from four different locations: two from the enclosed bridge, and two amidships from an open bridge.
Situated less than 1 ft above the water line are recessed retrieval wells, allowing for easier recovery of persons and boardings. A watertight survivor's compartment is equipped for comprehensive first aid. It is situated at the combined center of rotation of the ship.
