EMINENCE has an extremely fine destroyer like bow entry. This provides low resistance to waves and excellent seaworthiness as well as an impressive 6.000 n mile range.

She also features an a very large transom hatch with two of the well proven tender launching systems developed by A&R which allow smooth launching and recovering even when under way.
