Technohull Unveils A Lightning-Fast New Tender

The speed machine is powered by three motors capable of 185km/h.

Technohull’s newest fleet member isn’t just fast, it’s super fast.

The Greek yard, known for building high-powered luxury tenders, has just unveiled a new 11-metre vessel that is capable of reaching more than 100 knots (185km/h) at full tilt. In fact, the new special addition, which is known officially as the 38 Grand Sport Super Fast, has been fittingly described as a “rocketship” by Technohull.

At the heart of this 3175kg speed machine is three Mercury 450R SM outboard engines that collectively churn out a bonkers 1006kW. That makes the Super Fast more like a race boat than a leisurely limousine. For those seeking slightly less speed, the standard version of the 38 Grand Sport that was unveiled in 2019 can be fitted with twin engines that enable a comparatively modest top speed of 78 knots (144km/h).

Adding to all that power is the tender’s dynamic silhouette. Like the standard model, the Super Fast sports a deep-V Dynastream hull with ventilated steps that was developed over five years. Technohull says the hull cuts through waves and deflects spray, while also providing a cushion of air to reduce friction and absorb shock. That’s vital when tearing it up at 100 knots.

“Even at her 100 knot top speed, control is absolute, with a balanced helm and smooth maneuvering,” the yard said in a statement. “Add to that the extreme seaworthiness of this offshore-rated hull and you have a recipe to satisfy even the most demanding speed freak.”

To top it off, the Super Fast is fitted with a 590-litre fuel tank and has a range of well over 100 nautical miles. That’s more than enough for a few high-speed joyrides.

Onboard, meanwhile, you can expect Technohull’s trademark elegance and superyacht-like finish, with teak decks and premium upholstery in a colour of your choosing. The boat is available in both open console or hardtop form and comes with a lengthy list of optional extras, from bathing ladders to underwater lighting. It’s also equipped with shock-mitigating bucket seats and an ergonomic helm designed to improve the cruising experience.

“There can be no more special edition for a true lover of ultra-fast boating,” the yard adds.
