My company designs for Technohull in Greece - initially this was a 10M model called the 999, but at the moment we are supplying a new 668 model and also working on design mods to their 777 model.

After that we are then looking at introducing an 888 model.

Having recently visitied and tested the boats I can certainly recommend there finish and build quality and as for performance & handling I'm going to be bias - but I beleive they are some way ahead of the competition mentioned.

The Humber hull seems to cope well with short sharp waves, its taking a nose dive into a big blunt swell that hurts one's crown jewels

.. mmm ... I can only imagine that, Stephen.

However, while on a related subject, what's with these jockey seats? They look most uncomfortable to me, but I suppose they may help you stay in place. I see not all ribs have them.

Jockey seats are uncomfortable for long periods in calm weather - a bench seat is better. In rough seas though you wouldn't want a bench seat!!! Also in tight turns etc a jockey seat is ideal - it's like riding a motorbike.A lot is down to the padding on the seat and they mustn't be too wide. My boat's seats are just about perfect. You can sit down or stand up as you choose.

I think my ideal would be a wrap around bolster with a flip down seat so you can sit or stand but still be supported.

when the seas become a short sharp chop a longer hull is always better because the boat can bridge the waves better, unlike a small boat where you slam into every wave whilst struggling with the throttle. it becomes a little uncomfortable to say the least!
