Beneteau Barracuda 7


Posted on. 08/06/2013

The 1st Edition of the Barracuda Tour of Brittany 2013 ended on Saturday 18th May in Saint Malo. Beneteau continue.

This tour of Brittany on board two 7 and 9 metres Barracudas, braving the harshest of sea conditions, is a real achievement for BENETEAU and its partners.

500 nautical miles 8 days 60 engine hours the Barracuda Tour: more than an adventure a real Tale of the sea!

‘The aim was to offer sport fishing enthusiasts the whole expertise of our new Barracuda range, to put boats with performance engine and hulls to the test and see how they fare through the stages. Have angling experts take these boats to legendary fishing grounds, using state of the art electronics and top of the range fishing equipment, in order to offer clients and journalists the most comprehensive testing conditions.’

‘Each stage was made up of 2 parts: first navigation time to demonstrate the boats’ speed and easy handling from one point to the other, in all sea conditions, followed by dedicated fishing breaks to ensure the crew could benefit from the best advice on the subject and to show how versatile the boats are. We then identified an itinerary which would allow us to combine extreme navigation and best fishing grounds, whilst considering the stages’ level of difficulty to give a real sense of what our Barracudas can achieve.’

The Barracuda Tour was an event organised by BENETEAU, its dealer network and its partners. Each partner had an important role to play in this adventure to allow this exciting project to get off the ground. BENETEAU’s contribution was the Barracuda range of performance-hull boats.

Thanks to the HONDA MARINE 200 HP engine for the Barracuda 7 and 2×150 HP engine for the Barracuda 9, they reached top speeds in excess of 30 knots. They rose to the event and completed the challenge despite very difficult conditions. Almost the entire distance was covered in 35 knots headwind and very strong currents such as those in the Raz de Sein crossing.

During all fishing stages, the boats showed great sea-faring qualities and particularly perfect stability, suited to sport fishing. The Barracuda 7 and 9 optimal interior layout allowed a crew of 4 and 6 respectively on board the boats.

Official partner MC Technologies fitted the electronics on board. Equipped with the latest LOWRANCE 12’’ and 7’’ HDS touch screens, HD transducers and structure scans, the Barracudas benefitted from the best chart material currently available on the market.

And to ensure top quality fishing materials and equipment were on hand, BENETEAU opted for ILLEX’s Element Rider fishing rods, DAIWA reels, FIIISH baits and HENRI LLOYD clothing.

The very best coming together to take on the extreme challenge!
