With a striking line, a determined look and a well-thought-out deck and wheelhouse layout with comfortable installations, escape from it all on the Barracuda 8, suited to a wide range of programmes.
The Barracuda 8 is a highly seaworthy sport fishing boat, thanks to the latest generation of Airstep® hull. She is protected and also very spacious and welcoming. A fisher and an adventurer, her Scandinavian spirit makes her perfect for any kind of break.
With her attractive lines and a sturdy reliable profile, the Barracuda 8 has all the qualities of a fisherman’s best friend. Her large starboard walkway makes it easy to move about the boat. Her easy to access cockpit is entirely modular, with a large choice of options such as the aft fishing station or the sliding seat that enables you to configure the boat to match your requirements.
The Barracuda’s walk-around deck, with a wide starboard and port walkway, makes it easier to move about on board. The bench seat below the pilothouse on the foredeck can be removed in a couple of seconds, freeing up a large amount of space. The Barracuda 8’s cockpit is perfect for relaxing and features a cleverly designed mobile, multifunctional bench seat as well as a convenient centre table. A storage area is located under the seat which slides from front to back. It is a comfortable place to sit facing the sea. Positioned in the centre of the cockpit, it joins the side bench to create a large sunbathing area. Pushed back to below the pilothouse, together with the side benches it offers seating for eight people around a foldaway table.
With upholstery in shades of graphite, red brick curtains and light-coloured oak woodwork, the Barracuda 8 follows the design codes of Scandinavian countries. The choice of teak as a deck covering increases her warm cozy appearance further still. The three-door version of the Barracuda 8, with aft sliding door, opens up spaces and creates a flow between the cockpit and the wheelhouse.
Protected yet open, spacious yet welcoming, the Barracuda 8 naturally embraces Scandinavian architectural and design codes. Brick-red curtains, graphite-hued furnishings, oak tinted woodwork and flooring, and optional teak for the deck covering, make for a cozy atmosphere on board. Her three-leaf sliding doors create a seamless space between the wheelhouse and the cockpit.
