Technohull UK
The 1st UK showing of Technohull seaDNA 999 RIB c/w 2 x Yamaha F300
This is a unique 10m offshore RIB with a twin ventilated step hull designed by the famous British powerboat designer Adam Younger. Although a truly high performance and eye-catching boat, it does not lack comfort as it has a surprisingly spacious bow cabin and deck area. The distinctive deck design means the bow cabin does not exceed tube height, creating the sporty look of an “open” RIB that everyone loves, while giving the ability for four people to sleep comfortably. Underneath the central navigation console, there is a separate nautical type toilet. Fuel capacity is 490 litres in a stainless tank. Water capacity is 175 litres.

The high performance deep V hull, with two vented steps is designed for long distance offshore journeys offering an ultra smooth ride, excellent fuel efficiency and giving this RIB the ability to use horsepower as low as a single 250hp outboard. With maximum horsepower of twin 350s, the seaDNA 999 is a real high-flying performer.

Ribeye with custom restyles for 2013
Ribeye relaunched the 740SX at London and it really does make a statement! Built on a proven commercial hull with a recreational layout, the 740SX is already unique in the market. Always constructed to the highest quality, but now with latest matt textured tube and upholstery fabrics available, the 740SX is a mean-looking additional to the Ribeye platter. Its strikingly good looks have caused a stir in the market and the demand has been greater than could have been anticipated. As well as its appearance, even greater care has been taken to ensure the vessel incorporates great storage and sunbathing facilities along with a picnic table to ensure it doesn’t just look the part, but delivers too.

The four RIBs at the show:
S785 with Yamaha F300
S740SX with Yamaha F250
S650 the special edition with the all new Yamaha F200
A600 with Yamaha F115

Cabrio drop-down transom RIBs – the space saving solution
BHG of Lymington is the importer of these RIBs, new to the UK market, and aimed at the space conscious yachtsman or powerboater requiring a tender offering minimum overall length, even when stowed, thanks to the patented drop down transom. Depending on model the transom can be manually folded down giving a smaller stowage size, even with the engine still securely in place, while larger models have a remotely operated drop down transom. All models have hull davit lifting points as standard.
