    I have just bought this boat a 1989 Tecnomar 50 Off shore Bruno Benetti. A collaboration between Bruno Benetti and Cougar of the UK which designed the hull. The surface drives are I think custom to this boat but not sure.
    Does anyone have any more knowledge of who designed the propulsion system and who might have made the propellers?
    Any history would be really appreciated. Many thanks

    Most welcome! Hope it was some help.
    Arneson also does a fixed/trimmable drive. Might ask Rik on this forum or offshoreonly dot com.
