Beneteau will launch its most recent addition to the Barracuda range – Barracuda 6 – in autumn. She will be shown at the boat shows in La Rochelle, Southampton and in Scandinavia.

The model was built on the experience of the Barracuda Tour, a no-kill sport fishing competition held by Beneteau annually.

The 5.52 boat is the smallest in the range but she is equipped with necessities as a fishing boat. She features a large cockpit with built-in fishing station and live bait.  A large starboard walkway affords easy access to the bow where there is a second comfortable fishing spot.

Two side bench seats can be added to the removable bench aft of the cockpit, offering comfort to the crew underway or at anchor, while providing open space for fishing. 

A few versions of the model are available. The basic version can be equipped with canvas closing off the pilothouse from the cockpit, while another version has two sliding doors. There is a similar choice between ordinary seats and bolster seats.

Independent of the chosen layout, the Barracuda 6 has a completely closed off stowage area that converts to a temporary berth, with an optional marine toilet possible. 

The Barracuda 6 comes with a choice of three different engine types – 90, 115 and 140hp.
