Inboard

Just received photos of the first inboard Technohull 999 - all are very pleased and she goes well! Powered by VW.

Yes - built by Technohull in Greece. This is the first inboard engined 999 built and she is performing very well with low horsepower.

225hp and 42 knots straight out of the box is very pleasing for a 10M boat. The builders are hopeful of gaining another knot or two from some work to props etc.

Sounds very good for a 10m rib with a 225hp, how much dose the boat weigh in at?
I presume it's one of your stepped hulls?

have not had a final weight confirmed yet - but whilst trying to keep the boat light we did not go to any really extreme measures.

It is a double stepped hull - but using our 'tapered step' system - which actually produces a really good handling hull and very efficient as well. Not the ultimate solution for a race hull but it does work really well for boats that used for general boating - giving good performance, ride and handling.

Feedback on the VW (diesel) is pretty good too.
