I imagine that a flatter bottom, or v shaped hull would tend to roll less than a round hull. Hard chines probably roll less than soft one. It probably also depends on the size and shape of the keel. I also imagine that a beamier boat would roll less, while a narrow boat would roll more. Deadrise at the waterline would probably also make a difference. Vertical topsides at the waterline would encourage rolling as compared to ones at an angle to the waterline.
