This is a brand new boat, never registered. A boat that seems to have been designed with the Bay Islands of Honduras in mind as she is perfect for island hopping and fishing along the way. Combining innovative design, speed, performance and safety all at once, this sport fisher enjoys perfectly controlled power and her interior is designed for cruising, making her a particularly attractive choice.
From the builder:
"The Barracuda 9’s hull is aggressive yet safe and she is perfectly balanced. Equipped with Air Step© technology, she is very comfortable to drive and her chined hull gives her great grip. Topped with a stylish straight wind-shielded wheelhouse, her deck has a walkaround layout. This boat is designed for fishing and has spacious functional ‘work areas’ outside (cockpit and foredeck). The Barracuda 9 boasts second driving station on the flybridge.
Ideal for easy movement on board, access to the wheelhouse is by two side sliding doors. Inside, the Barracuda 9 reveals a really comfortable atmosphere. With a dashboard with full electronic equipment, a large forward cabin, and a shower and toilet space, it is ready to set off on any trip. Every available space is used as a storage locker and for stowing equipment. The pilot and co-pilot bolster seats rotate to face the rear seat. This creates a dining area inside."
Though new this Barracuda is full equipped including the latest in electronics from Lorance, twin 200hp 4 Stroke Yamaha Engines, generator, air conditioning, electric windlass, radar and much more. Please contact us for full specifications and additional photos.
According to Beneteau, the intent of the Barracuda 9 is to create a boat that can be used by avid anglers late into the season and in all kinds of weather. She's also a boat that can be a very capable cruiser for two people on a weekend retreat because she can go over 40 mph. A cruising couple can cruise long distances quickly and sleep aboard or ashore for an exciting nautical vacation. Her sea keeping qualities, great flexibility, and optimization of space make this boat truly unique.
