Made in Greece
Greek RIB builder Technohull has presented the SV909 high-performance RIB.
The sporty 9m vessel can be used as a tender or a high-performance RIB. One of the Technohull SV909’s key facts is its super ventilating hull form that assures a soft ride even at high speeds and reduced fuel consumption. This shape works by allowing air to pass below the three-step hull, so when it begins to plane the air creates a cushion that reduces water resistance, optimizing the RIB’s performance and reducing fuel consumption. The deep-V shape also gives it a smooth ride through the waves even at slow speeds, together with good maneuverability.
Length overall is 9.05 meters, and the beam is 3 meters. The RIB displaces 1,750 kg and offers a layout that emphasizes simplicity and ergonomics. The forward part features a sun bed that continues aft along the tubes. Amidships is the ergonomic console with a full set of instruments and includes the possibility to mount a Smart Central Consol Touchscreen. The pilot and a guest have two wrap-around shock-absorbing seats.
The builder offers a lot of propulsion options. In the outboard versions there are eight available options (1x400hp, 1x350hp, 1x300hp, 2X300hp, 2x250hp, 2x200hp, 2x150hp, 2×115). The inboard version offers either one engine (220 or 370hp) or twin engines (2x170hp).
