Two new Technohull models in high demand from Turkey to USA

Restrictions imposed by the global Covid-19 pandemic have not brought production at Technohull to a standstill. Strict hygiene measures have allowed the Greek yard’s skilled workforce to keep building, albeit at a slower pace.

And it is just as well, because Technohull’s two newest RIBs have been whipping up interest on opposite sides of the globe. The new Explorer 40 has already sold dozens of hulls in Europe, and now arrives in the US for the first time. Meanwhile, the even sportier 38GS was exhibited in Istanbul with twin Mercury Verado 450V8 engines.Two new Technohull models in high demand from Turkey to USATwo new Technohull models in high demand from Turkey to USA

Explorer 40 arrives in the US
After hitting the water in Greece, the first of the exciting new Explorer 40 line has arrived in Miami where Technohull has already sold a fully-specced boat to local American clients.

The Explorer 40 is the latest of Technohull’s mould-breaking boats, combining exhilarating speed with extreme stability and safety at sea. It is able to balance these two characteristics because of its patented Dynastream hull, with three distinct ventilated steps. 

This shape is the result of years of research Technohull ‘s in-house naval engineering team. Its extreme efficiency allows the hull to plane at just 14mph, while the deep-V deflects spray in a seaway and makes light of tough conditions.

No compromise: power AND comfort
A range of inboard and outboard propulsion options push this athletic boat to a top speed of more than 75mph. For peak performance, choose a pair of Mercury 450 motors toting an awesome 900 total horsepower. You can mount up to two outboards on the notched transom, or go inboard with two of Volvo’s new V6-440 hydraulic drives, packing 880hp.

Don’t think for a moment that the technical capacities of the Explorer 40 mean that comfort has been neglected – far from it. American and European clients alike have commented on the spacious decks, extensive lounging areas and convenience of having a day heads and double bed down below. 

There is a sunpad and a deep, comfy seat at the bow, while owners can choose from more seating or sunbeds aft. There is a fridge, wet bar and espresso machine, high-end Fusion entertainment system and the choice of a sleek hard top or a simple bimini for shade. It all adds up to a formidable family cruiser.Two new Technohull models in high demand from Turkey to USATwo new Technohull models in high demand from Turkey to USA

38GS impresses in handling also new boat comers
Despite the blistering performance of Technohull’s new 38 Grand Sport, it is the safety and comfort that has really been attracting attention.

Just like the Explorer, the hull is built to the Dynastream design, guaranteeing super stable handling even at extreme pace. It also means that you don’t have to be an experienced race driver to get the best out of 38GS – the boat will take care of you. The boat can easily handle up to 1350hp, but the standard configuration of twin Mercury Verado 450V8 outboards is proving the most popular. Whatever you choose, you can expect safe and comfortable handling even in heavy seas.

The superyacht finish that Technohull strove so hard to achieve is proving hugely popular. The Greek shipyard has built boats to match the interior design of a number of much bigger motherships, with detailing in an array of fabrics and colours.
