Default flotation in 2100sc3

Wondering if anyone knows the flotation of Maxum boats? Getting a 2009 2100sc3....trading a small Boston Whaler 150 Super Sport. Will I sink if swamped or is there built in flotation?

I do not recall the exact coast guard rule but I think it's boat 17' and under must have floatation to keep passengers shoulders above water if the boat sinks.

Few manufactures build larger boats to do so.

What condition do you operate in that would swamp a 21' boat?

Most boats will float for a period of time before completely sinking.

No plans to be in rough enough water to ever swamp it but am curious on the flotation built into this boat, if any.

There should be foam in the hull between stringers. Maybe someone with this model will chime in.

Maxum does not make foam cored hulls to my knowledge.
