Technohull in Greece has launched the first two hulls of its Grand Sport 38. Based on model testing last year, they're expected to hit speeds around 103 knots.

The boats have what the builder calls a Dynastream hull, which has three steps and a deep-V form. Technohull’s designers developed the hull during a five-year research period with the Davidson Laboratory at the Stevens Institute of Technology in New Jersey.

Finish on the first two hulls is meant to complement superyachts, with the Grand Sport 38s being used as tenders. The standard twin-engine Mercury Verado 300XL version has solid teak decking and orange Spradling upholstery that's diamond-stitched. The sport version of the boat, with triple Mercury Verado 450s, has crimson upholstery inlaid with black and gray stripes intended to be reminiscent of carbon fiber.

Both versions have LED courtesy lighting, a swim ladder with push-button control, and the option of hardtops.

What's the range on a boat that goes so fast? According to Technohull, it's 200 nautical miles with the standard propulsion.
