Safehaven Marine has designed a speedboat meant for naval, law enforcement, and offshore patrol\u2014the XSV 17 Thunder Child. The straight lines and sharp corners is reminiscent of the f-117 Nighthawk, the first aircraft designed with stealth technology. While the Thunder Child has no reported stealth capability, the look is similar, making it appear to be invisible to radar. Regardless, you wouldn\u2019t want this boat sneaking up on you. Slap a bat insignia on it, and the Dark Knight would proudly patrol the seas in this intimidating craft.\r\n\r\n\r\n\r\nSafe Haven Marine claims that the Thunder Child is a \u201cvery high speed, wave piercing, low interceptor\u201d and they have the power to back it up. Thunder Child is powered by a pair of Caterpillar C12.9 engines that are not only turbocharged, but supercharged as well. The engines are intercooler diesels capable of 1,000 horsepower each. With a propulsion system created by Metamarine in Italy, the Thunder Child is capable of maximum speeds of 54 knots (that\u2019s a little over 62 miles per hour). Thunder Child also has long range fuel tanks, giving the boat a range of over 750 nautical miles.\r\n\r\nThunder Child isn\u2019t a two-seater, either. You can comfortably seat 10 passengers, with a separate head and sleeping compartment in the forward cabin. Crews are kept safe in four water tight compartments and with Thunder Child\u2019s self-righting capsize recovery ability. Pirates and smugglers beware\u2014you won\u2019t outrun Thunder Child and its large crew capacity makes for an intimidating boarding party.\r\nCheck it out\r\nHave you subscribed to Man of Many?
