Barracuda 8

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.

Exterior design

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.

 
 
 
 
 
 
 

Interior design

With upholstery in shades of graphite, red brick curtains, 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 cosy 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. 

 
 

Fisher and adventurer in one

A direct legacy of the experience gleaned on the Barracuda Tour – sea bass no-kill fishing competitions organized every year by Beneteau –
this sport fishing boat built on an Airstep ® hull has excellent sea-keeping.  
Keen anglers immediately relate to this boat, which has all the essential equipment.

  • AIR STEP® 2 HULL
  • MULTIPLE VERSIONS
  • EQUIPMENT MODULARITY

Air Step® 2 hull

By increasing the air inflow beneath the hull, the Air Step® 2 represents a considerable development of this technology that increases performance, safety and cruising comfort. While reducing fuel consumption, she accelerates faster and speed is augmented. This latest generation of a patent that has already proved its worth also offers excellent sea-keeping, simpler passage through the waves, linear acceleration and easily handled curves. The ‘air cushion’ effect aft of the hull procures amazing comfort.  

Airstep® Patent: Maud Tronquez, Patrick Tableau, Remi Laval-Jeantet

Multiple versions

Available with or without a flybridge, the ‘two side door’ version features a three person seat, under which a small galley is concealed. The three door version has a three-leafed glazed door to stern. On this version, the galley space is located opposite a fold-away portside seat. 

Equipment modularity

The modularity of the various equipment and fittings offered for fishing gives you great latitude as to how you use the boat. The side seats can be folded down and the additional cockpit seat slides forward and back and holds an additional fish bin. The bench seat and two forward seats are removable. Lastly, the boat is equipped with rod holders, a live bait well, a large central locker and two side lockers.
