Specs & Info
This vessel features 3 staterooms with one master and two guests. There are side decks, port and starboard, along the main cabin. Inside the main cabin is the helm station forward and a large dinette with upholstered seating to port . The main cabin is fitted with large aluminum framed windows all around that provide excellent visibility. The galley area also has a large desk useful for navigation. There are port and starboard companionways leading to quarters below. Below the main cabin in the starboard hull, starting forward are a head with toilet, sink with vanity. Next aft is a ship’s office followed by a stateroom with a machinery/storage space beneath the large berth. In the port hull, starting forward, is the captain’s stateroom the majority of which is raised and bridges the two hulls. Next aft in the port hull is a head with toilet, sink and vanity followed by a stateroom aft.
HULL & DECK
The vessel presents itself with twin hulls each having a raked stem, fine entry and flat transoms. Each hull is a modified deep vee with an engine room at its aft end. Each transom is equipped with an integral dive/work platform accessed from the aft deck by built-in steps. There are tapered bulwarks with railings that lead aft from the blunt, rounded off bow to the aft end of the main cabin. On the fore deck is an anchor windlass set up with two separate anchors and chains. A chain locker is located beneath the fore deck. Additional items on the aft deck are a large welded aluminum A-frame davit with Pullmaster hydraulic hoist winch and the davit’s hydraulic rams and controls; Port and Starboard fuel fills; Moon pool with bolted hatch cover and 22 ½” high coaming; Port and starboard shore power receptacles and stairs leading up to the flying bridge/winch deck.

On the flying bridge/winch deck is the upper helm station forward with two upholstered, Todd helm chairs followed by two large deck lockers that also serve as bench seats. Furthest aft on the deck is a life raft in a cradle with a hydraulic powered level wind winch on centerline. The upper deck is fitted with a Bimini top supported by stainless steel framework.
The engine rooms are accessed through large, hinged hatches on the aft deck that are supported by gas shocks. Each engine room contains the following equipment: (1) Caterpillar propulsion engine, with marine transmission, starting, exhaust and cooling system components; Hamilton jet drive unit; Jastram hydraulic steering gear; (2) 400 gallon fuel tanks with manifolds and filters; (1) Stainless steel water tank; De-Bug Fuel treatment system; (2) Vapor tight rotary battery switches; Electric bilge pump with float switch; (10) 12V batteries; (1) 12V DC Jabsco wash down pump.

Equipment particular to the port engine room is the following: Hydraulic power pack for operating deck equipment; Xantrex inverter/charger.
Her hull has a high tunnel ceiling with a large opening between the sponsons which allows free movement of wind-waves without slamming on the wet-deck. Horizontal steps on the inside of the tunnel walls act both as chines to deflect green water from the hull surface, and to break up the solid water into spray.
The hull is soft riding, mainly due to the vertical inside shape of the sponsons, which reduces the planing area, reducing the vertical acceleration forces. The height of the wake produced by the hull is much reduced as compared to conventional monohulls, due to the reduced wave-making resistance of the long, slender sponsons.
Another key component that sets Teknicraft's design apart from other designs is a hydrofoil that spans between the two pontoons. This foil provides a significant amount of lift, which reduces the amount of drag.
