English term or phrase:transom boat
Open transoms: Most open transom boats are sinkings waiting to happen. With an open transom, a vessel is at huge risk if it loses power. Under these circumstances, the lack of a transom becomes very dangerous. Most boats that are swamped are outboard powered, with engine cut-outs which are a few inches above the water.
Explanation: there are lots of ways of describing this dangerous kind of boat. Usually sailing dinghies or small racing boats, they depend on speed to prevent being swamped by following waves.
They have no transom (open transom) = sin espejo.
