With its high center of gravity and weight, I am sure you can roll it if you don't stay within its performance envelope. I don't have any desire to find out where the outer edge of the envelope is.
I'm not sure I'd classify it as a boat. It does seem softly sprung but I think it's appropriate for an off road vehicle designed be traversing rough trails.
As for rolling the vehicle... one of the auto shows did a demo showing the difference in high speed stability between a vehicle with stability control and one without it. During emergency maneuvers the results were really pretty impressive. They might have been exaggerating a bit but I do think that tech really does make a pretty big difference. I've noticed it's (positive) effects on something as simple as driving down a gravel road (rather aggressively I might add).
