Last weekend we spied the very obvious black preproduction prototype Pyranha 9R MKII on the water. However there was another 9R prototype on the water that was not quite as conspicuous.
In its classic Pyranha colours this prototype 9R doesn’t look too different to the current production model and didn’t get much attention. Given that I am a bit of a boat geek I knew it looked different from the current model.
A closer look shows that this isn’t a current production model.
The stern has a much larger squared off area and the drain bung is in a different position to the current production model.
The underside of the bow also looks different.
Closer inspection of the images also showed that the cockpit (just like the black prototype) has been welded in.
UPDATE: After a bit of digging we’ve found out that this design is one that has been scrapped and will not be making it into production.
