Barracuda 27 concept

Alberto Mancini is the head of Trieste based Amyachtdesign and creator of the Barracuda 27 concept.
This runabout ALL MADE IN SARDINIA is the natural evolution – in a smaller size - of the Barracuda 42 design (introduced at the end of 2010, in the water and presented to the press at the end of June 2012).

The Barracuda 27 maintains the unmistakable style of the foredeck with the combined windscreen and skylight, along with clean and elegant lines with a touch of vintage appeal. The Barracuda will be presented in the summer of 2012. The Barracuda's 8.2 meter length allows her to be trailered, giving the owner exceptional freedom of movement. Ideal as a tender for larger yachts.

Technical Highlights and Thrilling Performance.

The Barracuda 27 was created using applied studies typical of larger vessels. Built in advanced resin composites, the hull was computer optimized in the Navalhead Engineering Studio using state of the art computerized fluid dynamics (CFD) techniques.

Tank testing was carried out at the Trieste Naval facilities; thanks to the structural studies carried out by Biselli Engineering the results were excellent, confirming the 27's performance, comfort and sea keeping qualities.
The Barracuda 27 is offered with two propulsion system options: a single stern drive Volvo 300hp D4, giving a maximum speed of 40 knots; or twin stern drive Volvo 220hp D3's for a maximum speed of 44 knots (estimated speeds at average load of 2.8 tons).
