The Barracuda 8 from French builder Beneteau is a reliable sportfishing boat that is equally comfortable for cruising. There is a large forward cabin, bathroom with shower and closet space, making this boat comfortable for overnight trips. The two pilot and co-pilot helm seats swivel around to face the table and bench seating in the saloon, creating an excellent space for enjoying meals in the protected space. The wood and stainless steel are high quality, making the interior a pleasurable space to spend time.
The hull is inspired by American fishing boats, known for their V-flared design that cut through the waves. Owners and guests will feel safe on board as this seaworthy yacht has a hull backed by Air Step® 2 hull technology, which optimises performance, stability and cruising comfort.
The straight windshield wheelhouse, inspired by Scandinavian fishing boats, is stylish and practical, making great use of the deck space and allowing for a sizable foredeck. The walk-around deck makes it easy to move around the deck spaces, and there are functional work areas for fishing. For serious fishermen, an optional flybridge version with two seats and a helm station provides excellent views of the surrounding waters.
