Forty-nine feet (14.95 meters) is pretty big for a tender, but big yachts want and need big support craft. The Technohull Omega 48, with deliveries starting in mid-2023, blends the space for a number of guests with the high performance hallmarking the brand.
Like her smaller sister, the Omega 47, the Omega 48 has a deep-V, stepped hull and several power options to support your needs. Technohull has patented the hull design, calling it a Dynastream hull design. Briefly, according to the Greek manufacturer, the hull delivers high speeds, along with comfort and good handling even in some rough sea conditions. Although it doesn’t specify the potential speeds, the power packages range from twin 600-hp engines to five (yes, five) 450-hp engines. Inboards and outboards, including diesel engines, are available, too. Note that the LOA for the inboard version is slightly longer, at 49’6” (15.11 meters).
Regardless, the main attraction for the Technohull Omega 48 is her spaciousness. Beam is a wide 15’5” (4.72 meters). By comparison, the Omega 47 has a beam of 11’8” (3.6 meters). Typically, performance-oriented tenders don’t have such generous space available. But, Tecnohull chose this route because it intends the boat to encourage spending all day on the water.
A handful of amenities follow that path. For instance, a big sunbed beckons aft. It’s a first for Technohull, too. Yet another sunbed sits forward, joined by a wide settee. Typically the manufacturer lets buyers arrange the decks a few ways, and this tender is no different. Therefore, you can have back-to-back settees in proximity to a mini bar or even a full wetbar. For spending time enjoying meals, request a table and settee aft by the sunbed. Additionally, the Technohull Omega 48 has its own garage. Stow small items (perhaps SeaBobs) in there, along with dock lines. When’s the last time you saw a tender with its own toy/utility garage?
If your guests get tuckered out having fun all day, the standard V berth lets them take a nap. It’s accessible through a pantographic door in the console. The same door yields access to a handy head with a shower.
Speaking of the console Technohull wants your crew’s driving experience to be equally enjoyable. A glass windscreen provides good protection, especially when the boat is zipping along. The hardtop provides welcome shade as well, plus of course is aerodynamic. Three shock-absorbing seats at the helm let them drive more comfortably, too.
Finally, Technohull provides a choice of premium marine fabrics for the helm seats and guest seating.
