I think colliers were very stoutly built. That's why they were used for exploration. Endevour was one too.

The 1960 was not a replica! It was a movie prop designed to be sunk for the final scene in the film... But Brando threw a hissy fit.
It was designed to look good on film, and probably proportioned to fit into standard camera lenses. And deck space to mount a camera, and shrouds so it looks like actors are tough climbing them.

It's like movie cars. They may SOUND life they have a v12 under the bonnet but actually it's a Korean engine that does 1,000 mpg and fits Califorias emissions rules!
