This photo shows a 65 (with stability similar to Anthem's,) undergoing Coast Guard stability testing, using a small army (50 people) as moveable ballast.  Notice that the waterline stripe is still visible even with this excessive load.

There are three watertight bulkheads.  The forward bulkhead is at the rear end of the anchor locker. The aft bulkhead is under the steering pedestal.  There is another between the engine room and the master stateroom.  Other safety features include non-skid deck surfaces, strong lifelines, bow and stern pulpits, self bailing cockpit, and secure hatches and ports. The non-skid deck surface has enough tooth to insure good footing, yet it is not so rough as to tear up your skin.

There is a large electric bilge pump, and a second system for draning bilges and shower pans. There is a general purpose pickup hose that can suck water out of any spot in the central area of the boat.   This is a very large, manually operated high capacity bilge pump in the main salon, and another in the engine room.

Anthem is equpped with 3' tall lifelines (3 rails) and pulpits.  This height is required for Coast Guard certification.

Running lights are the same size and power as required for full sized ships.  Anthem is readily visible at night from long distances.

Anthem has a 6 man zodiac self inflating survival raft, with canopy.

It is fully equipped with lifejackets, flares and strobes. 

There is a dedicated EPIRB (emergency position indicating radio beacon) aboard the boat.  The system provides a signal indicating the boat's name as well as its position.

All deck surfaces have effecting non skid.
