Greek RIB brand, Technohull stands for “versatility, performance and close attention to detailing and materials”, which it says are all perfectly integrated in their best-selling model, the seaDNS999 which can reach a top speed of 90 knots (166kmh).
Based in Alimos, revered as one of the most beautiful coastal stretches around Athens, Technohull was founded in 2005 and specialises in RIBS with infusion built hulls, made of epoxy resins and multi-directional fibers to ensure an extremely solid platform for the standard ORCA Penel Flippo 1670 tubes.
All phases of construction take place in-house, within the yard’s premises and are performed by highly specialised technicians following strict international standards.
Technohull has a business ethos that promotes the excellence of “Made in Greece” with their one-of-a-kind aesthetic taste, design and innovation appeal. Every unit is designed from scratch and is based on a different hull model to best fit the length and the different characteristics required by its owner. Highest quality materials are selected in every construction and finishing process.
With a length of 10.3 metres and a beam of 2.8, the seaDNA999G5 can adapt to a wide range of owners, available in the three versions.
Open: A V-shaped settee that conceals a spacious storage area, while the raised step at the peak considerably facilitates embarking and disembarking, making this version ideal as a tender for large yachts.
Delta: Perfect for relaxing daily use and enjoyable anchorages immersed in nature thanks to the sun-bathing area that covers the entire bow area.
Cabin: Ideal for those who want to enjoy weekends on the water, this layout is characterised by a cabin with a double bed and an enclosed bathroom. Light and air are assured by the large companionway.
The ergonomic centre console is equipped with two wrap-around shock-absorbing seats, perfect for safe and controlled steering even in rough seas. The instrument panel includes a “Smart Central Consol Touchscreen”. The optional mobile kitchen with sink and burner is located aft of the console seats.
While the yard offers three versions of the bow area, astern they offer four. Three of the four versions are for the outboard motor propulsion systems and let the owner chose between an elongated divan, a U-shaped settee, or a recessed sun-deck.
In all three versions, the two bathing platforms with boarding ladders next to the motors are perfect for afternoons at anchor and refreshing showers.
The yard’s inboard propulsion option includes an elongated divan and an extra-large sun-bathing area above the engine room.
Safety, performance and handling are among the fundamentals of the Technohull brand. Owners may choose from a wide range of propulsion systems for the seaDNA999G5 to take full advantage of the deep-V hull that guarantees an easy ride over the waves and perfect control even when making manoeuvers at high speed.
The outboard version offers four horsepower options (2x250hp, 2x300hp, 2x350hp, 2x400hp) that ensure astounding performance, from a top speed of 68 knots for the base version (with a cruising speed of 50 knots) to a top speed of 90 knots (70 cruising) with the twin 400hp option.
The inboard version includes two options: a single engine with either 220 or 370hp or twin engines of 265hp each. The seaDNA99G5 has a top speed of 63 knots depending on the configuration chosen.
Performance and high efficiency make this the ideal RIB for those who want to take the weekend off and not worry about the distance, with a category-leading range.
Top quality gelcoat colors, multi-directional fibers and high quality resins are standard in every boat. All Technohull models are equipped with ORCA Penel Flippo 1670 tube fabrics. Vacuum infusion technology, epoxy materials and of course hand-laid polyester are all combined when producing GRP elements.
Completing the sophisticated hull design, top quality techniques and materials are applied throughout: epoxy vacuum infusion lamination with special multi-directional fabrics and foam cored layers, cured in a carefully controlled oven, ensure the absolute best construction process for a super strong, very lightweight boat. Many parts are built of pure carbon fibre, further reducing overall weight. Throughout the production process ISO 9001:2008 standards are strictly followed.
