As the name suggests, The Beneteau Barracuda is a fast and energetic craft which will suit the needs of those anglers wishing to get to the fishing marks quickly but in some style. This isn't just another angling boat, this is years of development and expertise looking at what anglers want, and the result is a craft that all will admire.
This 7 meter hull can fish 6 anglers in comfort but has a level of fit out that will please the family. The engine option in this case is a lean burn Suzuki 175hp 4-stroke which will travel at 25 knots with ease. The interior joinery is good, the fabrics functional and the use of space excellent. The large wheelhouse can be entered from either side. The all round vision from the wheelhouse is outstanding and the opening roof hatch lets in light and additional ventilation. Up front is the enormous anchor locker with electric windlass and tilting bow fitting. At the stern is the live bait well and below deck storage for rods and tackle.
This even has an additional steering position for when hauling pots of nets and gives greater control if short handed. Ideal to for manoeuvring between the marks or trolling.
Comprehensive Navigation package with Chart plotter, GPS, DSC radio and even radar. There is a stand alone Fish finder too.
The cabin has a helm seat, double co pilot seating with space for a single burner hob below. There is a Waeco fridge for those celebratory beers. For those of you who don't approve of the "bucket and chuck it" method there is a separate heads compartment with sea toilet and holding tank. There is room to get your head down too if you fancy a weekend away.
All in all this is a stunning craft and the ideal platform to enjoy the sea.
