Designed to sink

I think this abomination was featured in a post not long ago but I can’t find it so pardon the new topic about it.

" According to the Fay’s captain, Ken-Åke Grahn, the ship lost auxiliary generator power off Honningsvåg. Without power for the Fay’s hydraulics, the crew could not fully secure a leaking hatch, and the vessel gradually flooded. “Then we just had to leave the boat,” Grahn told Radio Nordkapp."

No manual backup pump? No redundant hydraulic pump on main? No emergency generator?

How did that thing ever get insurance much less any kind of certification? Was the design a high school class project?

So many questions that should never have to be asked.
