Marine & Land System's 47-foot Motor Lifeboat (MLB) is a rugged, highly survivable,
all-aluminum rescue boat that significantly enhances the United States Coast Guard's
ability to perform search and rescue operations in heavy weather conditions.
The MLB design combines many technological innovations. Its lightweight, rugged marine-grade aluminum hull is faster than its predecessors and can withstand impacts from 20-foot breaking waves at three times the force of gravity. The MLB design has an inherent self-righting capability. When pitch-poled or rolled into swells, the MLB will self-right in less than 10 seconds - with all machinery remaining fully operational.
