THE UNSINKABLE LEGEND !!! THIS BOAT WILL NOT SINK!!!! FOAM FLOATATION A vessel can be kept afloat using solid installed foam. Recall the Boston Whaler commercials where a tender is cut into thirds and remains afloat with a person in each section? However, the drawback to using installed foam in a cruising boat is quantity or volume of foam needed to keep a flooded displacement hull afloat. SO IMAGINE THE FOAM BOSTON WHALER ADDS TO MAKE THIS CLAIM!! A 30,000-pound boat, (a common displacement for a 45-foot to 50- foot passagemaker) would need nearly 500 cubic feet of solid foam within the hull to keep it from foundering when flooded. Fitting 500 cubic feet of foam into a yacht's hull would be a feat, requiring every nook and cranny to be filled since 500 cubic feet equals a space nearly 20' long, eight feet wide and three feet high. To keep such a boat afloat, foam three inches thick inside the entire hull would be needed, and that would only support the boat to its gunwales.
Meet the boat that reimagines the possibilities for onboard space: the 2014 NMMA Innovation Award-winning 345 Conquest®. Known for its sleek and sophisticated styling as well as the award-winning Dynamic Cabin System—a forward-berth dining table that seats six adults and converts into a plush queen-sized bed with the push of a button— this Conquest all but ensures the captain will never cruise without company. Yet, as comfortable as it is, the 345 Conquest is also a serious offshore fishing boat, with amenities and options to fit any seasoned angler’s needs, inspiring confidence with any adventure. Step aboard the 345 and see how smart a walkaround boat can be.
