The Greek shipyard TECHNOHULL®, leader in the production of high-performance RIBs, is excited to introduce the new T688. At only 7 meters of length, the T688 is the smallest of the range, but nevertheless the Greek yard has managed to incorporate the versatility, comfort and sportsmanship that decreed the success of their larger models.
These concepts are part of the DNA of the Greek yard from Alimos, one of the most beautiful coastal areas in Athens. Since the birth of the yard in 2005 these same concepts have driven their production of a series of extremely versatile models - ideal both as luxury tenders for large yachts or for elegant medium range cruising.
The multi-directional fibers ensure a solid platform for the standard ORCA Penel Flippo 1670 tubes.
All phases of construction take place in-house, within the yard’s premises, and are performed by highly specialized technicians following rigid international standards.
VERSATILITY ABOVE ALL
Versatile, this is the first adjective to characterize the TECHNOHULL® T688. Thanks to its considerable load carrying capability and carefully studied ergonomics, the T688 is perfect both for fast and comfortable daily outings cruising and as duty as a superyacht tender. The center console, which includes spacious locker volumes and an optional sportive and modern T-Top, allows for two lateral passageways that make it easy to move from bow to stern. The pilot and a guest have two wrap-around shock-absorbing seats, while a single seat is incorporated in the forward part of the console.
The large sunbathing area forward easily accommodates two, and a bow gangway makes it simple to go ashore and come aboard. At the stern the full-width settee seats three, and the special backrest design lets guests move conveniently to the bathing platforms that include a retractable swimming ladder.
A quick change of anchorage is guaranteed by a ventilated deep-V hull shape that takes full advantage of the propulsion options offered by the yard. The owner can choose between a four-cycle outboard, from 150 to 200hp, or a two-cycle, from 150 to 250 hp. A top speed well over 50 knots confirms the TECHNOHULL® T688’s sportive streak.
