The 47-foot Motor Life Boat is impressive. It is designed as a first response rescue resource in high seas surf and heavy weather environments. It is built to withstand the most severe conditions at sea and is capable of completing a rescue even under the most difficult circumstances. It is self-bailing self-righting almost unsinkable and has a long cruising radius for its size. * This 47' former Coast Guard Motor Life Boat vessel has only 1200 engine hours on its twin Detroit Diesels. * Challenging a current active duty US Coast Guard 47' Motor Life Boat this vessel was slightly faster at top speed. * Textron Marine sells this vessel for $4.3 million brand new this one is only slightly used and a bargain at the asking price of only $410000. * This vessel was a prototype model that came up the east coast from Virginia to New York. One of three R&D vessels her two sister ships are actively working as a rescue boat and as an offshore rig tender. * Textron has contacted this owner to show this boat overseas and elsewhere to other organizations to demonstrate the boats abilities. * The vessel has DDEC IV and comes with same package as the US Coast Guard uses. * It is also includes a fully loaded navigation and electronics package.
The USCG has designed and built new aluminum 47 foot lifeboats with Textron Marine and Land Systems awarded the contract to design and build the US model which was delivered in 1990. After 2 years of testing and evaluation 5 more were built between 1992 and 1994 incorporating improvements from the prototype model for further testing and evaluation around the country. The first production boat was delivered to the USCG in 1997. The 47 MLB is the most sophisticated MLB ever built able to withstand impacts of three times the acceleration of gravity she can survive a complete roll-over self-righting in less than 10 seconds with all machinery remaining fully operational. Powered by twin Detroit Diesels producing 435 hp (324 kW) each the 47 MLB can travel at 25 knots (46 km/h) to reach her destination. There are currently 117 operational with a total of 200 scheduled to be delivered to the USCG. A further 27 models are being built by MetalCraft Marine under license to the Canadian Coast Guard. In Britain the RNLI design and build several types of all-weather motor lifeboats the Arun class kept permanently afloat the Tyne class slipway-launched boat and the Mersey class carriage-launched boat. More recently the Arun replacement Trent and Severn class prototype models were delivered in 1992 with the first production Trent arriving in 1994 and the Severn in 1996. The first production Tamar class replacement for the Tyne went into service in December 2005 and the FCB2 class replacement for the Mersey is being developed for deployment in 2007. In Germany the DGzRS (Deutsche Gesellschaft zur Rettung Schiffbrchiger) has provided naval rescue service since 1865. It is a civilian non-profit organisation and has a wide variety of boats and ships the biggest being the 46 meter (150 ft) SK Hermann Marwede. The DGzRS operates from 54 stations in the North Sea and the Baltic Sea. It has 20 rescue cruisers (usually piggybaging a smaller rescue boat) and 41 rescue boats.
In 1988 Textron Marine was awarded the contract to develop a replacement for the 44' Motor Life Boat which had been in service with the Coast Guard since the early 70's. The first prototype was completed in 1990 and following two years of surf trials and evaluations five additional and improved prototypes were constructed and delivered to the Coast Guard for further evaluation. In 1997 the first production 47' MLB was accepted by the Coast Guard and since then well over one hundred have been produced. The ultimate goal is to have approximately 200 in service.
General Description
The 47' motor lifeboats are 47 feet long have a beam of 14 feet and draw 4.5 feet of water. Their displacement is 20 tons at full load and they have a compliment of 4. The 47' MLB can accommodate up to 5 additional passengers/survivors. They have a top speed of 25 knots and a cruising speed of 20 knots. Their maximum cruising range is 200 nautical miles. They have a 100-ton towing capacity. The 47' MLB is of an all aluminum construction is capable of operating in 20' breaking seas and winds of 60 knots and can survive impacts at three times the force of gravity. The 47' MLB is self righting and can return to an upright operational configuration within 10 seconds whether "pitch-polled" (rolled fore and aft) or rolled into swells (rolled across the boat's beam.) In addition the MLB is self-bailing and its machinery is not subject to operational interruption even while inverted. The boat can be operated from both an exposed bridge (offering better visibility in rescue situations) or from the enclosed pilothouse (to limit crew fatigue during extended surf operations.) To mitigate the pounding effects associated with surf operations the 47' MLB incorporates shock absorbing crew seats. The Crew/ Passengers compliment is a total of 9 with four(4) crew and five(5) passengers. These seats feature 360 degrees of rotation lap belts armrests and lumbar supports. The survivor compartment is also watertight and climate-controlled for survivor safety comfort and medical recovery.
