That looks like a Mark Bleaker type of electronics/wiring fit out. He redid one of mine last year and what a change.

Cheers Biff not everybody takes a look into the console. That is our standard wiring done by our guys in Poland. We have improved over the years :-) but that is what is expected from a boatbuilder

Agreed - great coffee and good to meet up with Phillip and Andre.

I'm going to be bias - but actually the 999 is so much fun to drive - rough water or calm. Also pretty practical - I've over nighted on one and the cabin is very comfortable.

Then the hull is one of the most efficient in terms of fuel use for a twin engined 10m. In fact I doubt if anything could match the fuel consumption / mileage figures.

Brig were there, they were exhibiting directly in front of the green bus, must say was a little disapointed with the build quality, and the way the control cables were run on top of the deck and not sub floor.

Hi, I would like your advice.
I am buying a Technohull 999 and I need some way to protect from the sun while driving.
I saw this picture and I wonder if such or other type of hardtop would have a significant influence on the stability of the boat at high speeds.

(the third picture of the boat with the black hard top)
I wouldn't like to make a serious mistake here.
