Inspired by North American ‘commuter style’ launches of the 1930’s era and seen transporting the rich and famous up and down America’s eastern seaboard, these elegant craft were famous for long, narrow hulls that focussed on speed.
Original designs sacrificed deck space in preference for greater enclosed accommodation. Barracuda’s design, however, has a distinctly ‘Mediterranean’ feel and includes a large, open aft-terrace and essential swim-boarding platform and fixed bimini. 21st Century revisions include gyro stabilisers for zero rolling, an engine room positioned aft to reduce daytime noise, (originals normally had large mid-mounted engines), and independent, spacious quarters for three crew. Six people are provided comfortable accommodation in three double rooms. A classic American ‘colonial-style’ interior will have varnished mahogany and teak furniture, interspersed with white-painted wall and ceiling panels. Constructed from timber/GRP epoxy composite, with cedar strip planking for the hull, sandwich bulkheads and plywood decks and superstructure, 12-14 knots cruising speed with 18 knots maximum will be available from an efficient hull offering economy and a comfortable ride.
