According to their website, FleetObsolete has three additional boats: 459, 48, and 615, but I can’t
This one is PT 459, a Higgins 78′ built in Louisiana.
Before coming to FleetObsolete, PT 459 did time as Beachcomber IV, a Fire Island ferry.
For a sense of what is involved in a restoration, see the video of PT 305.
To see a group of Swedish torpedo boats at full speed, watch this video; the best part is from 7’20” to the end.
