The French builder gives a first glimpse of its latest boats

Bringing together cruising comfort and fisher toughness, the new Barracuda line from Beneteau combines the builder’s aggressive Air-Step hull with a walkaround workboat-influenced design.

Coming in at 8.7m, the Barracuda is available in a variety of designs, including a flybridge, and the manufacturers are proposing offering it with outboards up to 400hp.

“More than a boat with fishing features, Barracuda is an expression of a new style of life,” a press release from the company claims. “It has been thought of, designed and developed in a way respecting the Beneteau brand values: seafaring qualities, design, safety and innovation.”
