Smokin’ RIB—Technohull Omega 45

Omega 45 is technologically advanced, filled with upscale touches, roomy as a dayboat and fast as hell.

  Like a bullet. Seen from above, that’s what the Technohull Omega 45 looks like. And with the maximum engine package — four 400 hp outboards — like a bullet is how the Omega 45 is going to move across the water. The projected top speed with the 1,600-hp option is 85 mph. Cruising speed is right around 55 mph.

As a rigid inflatable, the Omega 45 has a certain appeal as a superyacht tender, but at 45 feet long and with a cabin and a head built into the center console, it’s going to appeal to certain boat buyers as their main vessel. Add in seating for six on the aft settee, two more on an aft-facing bench, four in two rows of seats at the helm and two on a settee on the front of the console, and the 45 can serve as a dayboat too — a growling, aggressive, sleek, deep-V, twin-vented-hull dayboat.

A T-top covers the helm and the four seats there, which hug their occupant’s body and provide a shockproof ride. The helm itself features two 12-inch multifunction displays (and looks like it could fit another), an engine display, a stereo head unit, three cupholders, a bow thruster joystick, engine throttles, the steering wheel, a glove compartment and more.

Aft of the second row of helm seats, owners can choose a two-person bench seat or an outdoor galley unit. A sunpad on the bow hides a large storage area beneath it and has enough room for two people to stretch out atop it, but given the Omega 45’s capabilities that area should remain unoccupied while it is underway.

Teak decking, an electric windlass, Alcantara upholstery and other premium touches give the RIB a yacht-like feel to complement the super-aggressive profile.

Buyers looking for an inboard version are in luck, as Technohull has options for twin 350, 370 and 400 hp diesels. Triple 300, 350 and 400 hp outboards are other options.
