Living up to its reputation as something of an adventurer, this new addition is welcomed to the Barracuda family in the shape of a third model, benefitting from the experience gained during the famous Barracuda Tours – sea bass no-kill fishing tournaments organised each year by Beneteau. Apart from a new hull form which is both attractive and safer still, the Barracuda 8 brings together developments capable of making it a reference in the sport fishing sector.

With her attractive lines, sturdy and reliable appearance and a deck & pilothouse layout which have been
thought through in every respect, the new Barracuda 8 will quickly carve out a position as the ideal craft for keen fishers. Combining comfort with protection, she is practical & has all the qualities of a perfect ‘commuting’ boat.

Fitted with a real fishing station to stern – with a worktable, rod holders and drink holders – the cockpit of this new sport fishing vessel features a well-designed mobile multifunctional bench seat. Housing a fish tank under the seat which slides fore and aft, this is a comfortable place to sit facing the sea when fishing.

Walk-around deck

With a striking line, a determined look and a well-thoughtout deck and wheelhouse layout with comfortable installations, escape from it all on the Barracuda 8 suited to a wide range of programmes.

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 has a big aft fishing station, complete with a work table, and rod and drinks holder, but also has a cleverly designed mobile multifunctional bench seat. A live bait well is located under the seat which slides from front to back. It is a comfortable place to sit and fish 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 8 people around a foldaway table.

Spacious yet welcoming

Protected yet open, spacious yet welcoming, the Barracuda 8 naturally embraces Scandinavian architectural and design codes.

Brickred curtains, graphite-hued furnishings, oak tinted woodwork and flooring, and optional teak for the deck covering, make for a cosy atmosphere on board.

Her three-leaf sliding doors create a seamless space between the wheelhouse and the cockpit.

With three possible layouts of the wheelhouse, forward resting cabin and countless storage areas, the Barracuda 8 stands out in its category for its incredible practicality and versatility.
