Technohull’s Explorer 40 selling well in Europe

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 workforce to keep building, albeit at a slower pace.

And it is just as well, because one of Technohull’s newest RIBs is said to be 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.

The Explorer 40 is the latest of Technohull’s mould-breaking boats, said to combine exhilarating speed with extreme stability and safety at sea. It is able to balance speed and stability with its Dynastream hull (featuring three distinct ventilated steps).

This shape is the result of years of research by 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.

A range of inboard and outboard propulsion options push this boat to a top speed of more than 75mph.

Explorer 40 brief specifications:

  • L.O.A: 12.1m
  • Beam: 3.50m
  • Hull: Deep V ventilated steps
  • Displacement: Approx 4.500kg
  • Fuel Capacity: 800L
  • Water Capacity: 130L
  • Max Engines: 2x450HP
  • Engine Options: Inboard/Outboard
