Alpha Omega

With new design, new features and a new hull, Technohull reveals the new Omega 48 coming in 2023.

RIBs are in, and with good reason – hardy and fast, they offer great platforms for day trips, watersports, commuting or just blasting into a seaway to blow the cobwebs south. Their popularity means that RIB design continues to evolve – and the new Omega 48 from Technohull is looking like an evolution worth exploring.

The builder’s latest offering comes in at around the 50-foot mark (14.95 metres for the outboard version, a smidge over 15 metres for the inboard version), but it features what the brand calls a fresh, modern perspective on comfort, style and performance while still staying true to its high-performance DNA.

That latter point is evident in the array of engine options and configurations available, which includes triple Mercury 600 outboards and even a spectacular quintet of 450s.

It’s not just about the power, though. This new 48 features sharp and sleek design features that make the most of its 4.72-metre beam, from a generous island sunbed aft – a first for a Technohull – and numerous deck layout options to suit all needs and tastes. These include a back-to-back couch with mini bar – or a fully equipped wet bar – as well as an optional couch and table.


The bow also offers a giant sunpad opposite a wide console seat – great for chilling at anchor or for experiencing the thrill of the speed under way.

The Omega 48 also offers an interior for overnighting or weekending, accessed via a pantograph door in the helm console side. The comfortable and elegant cabin features an oversize double bed, plenty of stowage space, and a separate head with shower.

Back up top, the new model sports a brand new aerodynamic hardtop that is coupled to a full glass windshield to provide full shelter and protection from the elements even at max speed. The helm itself features a double row of triple shock-absorber helm seats, while the wide, fully equipped console houses digital management systems to enhance the driving experience.

The various engine options drive a semi-straight, wave-piercing bow hull design optimised for outstanding performance.

The patented Dynastream hull design not only delivers impressive speeds but also ensures exceptional seakeeping, great rough-weather handling, comfort, and efficiency.

Finally, the Omega 48 is also built for practicality, with unique features, like the aft garage, which thanks to the island sunbed’s dual opening offers vast storage space for water toys, utilities, ropes and even a small dinghy.

The Omega 48 is expected to launch mid-2023, with the order book sue to open soon.
