This boat won’t sink

Kampala, Uganda | THE INDEPENDENT | The Thunder Child is a revolutionary search and rescue boat that is virtually impossible to capsize. Even when flipped upside down in the water, the vessel is able to right itself almost instantly.

Developed by Irish company Safehaven Marine for use by the Irish Navy in high-pressure situations, the XSV-17 ’Thunder Child’ fits a crew of up to 10 people and is designed to absorb shocks from rough seas.

But its most impressive feature is the ability to bounce back into an upright position in any situation, which makes it impossible to capsize.
