Barracuda 6 Powerboat by Bénéteau Philippines
Pairing the latest technologies with a simple yet elegant aesthetic, the Barracuda 6 by Bénéteau is truly a sight to behold. Taking inspiration from their learnings during the 2011 Barracuda tour, Beneteau has crafted a cleverly designed motorboat that can be used by both beginner and experienced sailors. It comes in a wide range of configurations that can serve serious fishermen as well as coastal cruisers. And though it is the smallest model in the Barracuda line at just 5.52m long, it can easily accommodate up to six people, making it suitable for small families or group trips.
The Barracuda 6 Exterior
This powerboat is fitted with a single Suzuki outboard engine, which comes in 90 hp, 115 hp, and 140 hp variants. The 115 hp engine offers a good compromise between affordability and performance, while the 140 hp option can reach optimal speeds for regular coastal work.
Navigating the waters is a breeze thanks to the boat’s patented AirStep®2 technology, wherein small steps are introduced under the hull to more efficiently expel the water stream. This also reduces the amount of friction that is produced, allowing for an overall boost in speed and a massive reduction in fuel consumption. Hence, this plus its stellar engine makes for a pleasurable cruise while also minimizing each ride’s impact on the environment. All of its carefully crafted elements come together to offer sailing enthusiasts a safe and comfortable ride out on the waters.
The Barracuda 6 Interior
Getting around the Barracuda 6 is easy because of its open and spacious layout. The wheelhouse features an open back entrance that can be fitted with either a canvas door or two sliding doors. Inside of the wheelhouse are two comfortable bolster seats, both of which can be upgraded to proper chairs if desired. To the right is a 49-liter fridge that can store drinks and supplies, and beneath the driving station is a large, closed-off stowage area that can be converted into a temporary berth.
Each boat comes installed with a Lowrance HDS Live chart plotter, which uses a powerful dual-core processor to provide fast chart redraws and sonar updates. It uses a high-resolution SolarMax™ HD display that is viewable from various angles and various lighting conditions, including bright sunlight.
Sporting an impressive one-piece translucent glass windscreen with slender mullions, this powerboat’s all-around windows give pilots a complete 360-degree view of the surroundings. The side-access panel to the right of the steering wheel allows for quick entry to the side deck and can be outfitted with either a roll-up canvas door or a single sliding door.
And though the port side does not feature a walkaround, the Barracuda 6 more than makes up for it with a wider starboard side deck. This model can also come with a net roller system that helps protect the sides of the boat when hauling in lines, and can be transferred between the starboard and port area as necessary. The Barracuda 6 is also easy to maintain thanks to its self-draining deck which can be cleaned using the built-in pump hose for deck washing.
