Versatility, performance and an ever so close attention paid to detailing and materials : these are the concepts that are at the basis of all the RIBs produced by the Greek Technohull shipyard and are all perfectly integrated in their best selling model, the seaDNS999G5 that can reach a top speed of 90 knots with exceptional safety!
These concepts are part of the DNA of the Greek yard from Alimos, one of the most beautiful coastal areas in Athens. These concepts have permitted - since the birth of the yard in 2005 - to produce a series of models that are so versatile that they are ideal both as luxury tenders for large yachts or for elegant medium range cruising.
The infusion built hull, made of epoxy resins and multi-directional fibers, ensures an extremely 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.
ONE BOW, THREE VERSIONS
With a length of 10.3 meters and a beam of 2.8, the sea DNA 999 G5 can adapt to a wide range of owners. This is easily seen in the three versions of the bow area that the yard offers.
Open: Here we have a V-shaped settee that conceals a spacious storage area, while the raised step at the peak considerably facilitates embarking and disembarking, making this version ideal as a tender for large yachts.
Delta: Perfect for relaxing daily use and enjoyable anchorages immersed in nature thanks to the sun-bathing area that covers the entire bow area.
Cabin: Dedicated to those who want to enjoy short cruises, this layout is characterized by a cabin with a double bed and an enclosed bathroom. Light and air are assured by the large companionway.
A TRUE “TOY FOR BOYS”!
The ergonomic center console is equipped with two wrap-around shock-absorbing seats, perfect for safe and controlled steering even in rough seas. The instrument panel includes a “Smart Central Consol Touchscreen”. The optional mobile kitchen with sink and burner is located aft of the console seats. A real “toy for boys”!
MUCH TO CHOOSE FROM ASTERN
While the yard chooses to offer three versions of the bow area, astern they offer four!
Three of the four versions are for the outboard motor propulsion systems and let the owner chose between an elongated divan, a U-shaped settee, or a recessed sun-deck.
In all three versions the two bathing platforms with boarding ladders next to the motors are perfect for afternoons at anchor and refreshing showers.
The yard’s inboard propulsion option includes an elongated divan and an extra-large sun-bathing area above the engine room. A classic solution whose strength is its convenience.
As we stated above, performance and handling are among the fundamental strengths of the Alimos’ yard. Owners may choose from a wide range of propulsion systems for the seaDNA999G5 to take full advantage of the deep-V hull that guarantees an easy ride over the waves and perfect control even when making maneuvers at high speed.
The outboard version offers four horsepower options (2x250hp, 2x300hp, 2x350hp, 2x400hp) that ensure astounding performance, from a top speed of 68 knots for the base version (with a cruising speed of 50 knots) to a top speed of 90 knots (70 cruising) with the twin 400hp option.
The inboard version includes two options: a single engine with either 220 or 370hp or twin engines of 265hp each. The seaDNA99G5 has a top speed of 63 knots depending on the configuration chosen.
RANGE ISN’T A PROBLEM, ANYMORE
Performance and high efficiency make this the ideal RIB for those who want to take the weekend off and not worry about the distance to cover.
With the twin 400hp outboard option, it will only take two hours to cross from Athens to Mykonos Island, less than the time it often takes us just to get to the sea for a weekend.
In the same two hours, it's possible to go from the Italian Argentario Peninsula to Porto Cervo in Sardinia, in the heart of the Costa Smeralda. And the mere twenty minutes from Naples to Capri to enjoy a glamorous evening on the splendid island?
