I doubt they have a clue, not because of anything specific I know about the company but just recreational vessel industry practice.

The low freeboard of these boats would likely make them look pretty poor according to the criteria used for USCG inspected passenger vessels. This doesn't necessarily make them unsafe for their intended use but would not encourage a builder to even do the calculations comparing them with commercial passenger vessel standards.
