Cabin outboard boats from 7 to 11 meters

Beneteau Barracuda 9

How did Beneteau manage to combine three fishing/day-trip/cruising possibilities in a single hull of the Barracuda 9 (7.98 x 2.98 m)?

First of all, it started with the hull, the latest version of the Beneteau Air Step patent, which combines fuel savings, performance and an extremely comfortable passage at sea. The motorization can reach up to 500 hp with two outboards with large capacity tanks (up to 600 liters of fuel).

The Beneteau Barracuda 9 makes the most of the spaces, starting from the openable and modular cockpit that can be equipped for big fishing, wide gangways, large aft window, side doors and partitions that lead to a real sheltered salon with open kitchen and cockpit. Below deck a large cabin and a bathroom as well as a second cabin with two beds that can also become a storage area.

Toy 36 outboard

After 16 years since the launch of the first Toy, a “special” version has been developed to celebrate Toy number 36 of the model of the same name. It is a Toy 36 (m 11,65 x 3,80) in fly version, but with outboard motors. The boat is powered by two Yamaha 300 hp engines. The new propulsion leads to a saving in weight, a simplification of the systems and ease of management and maintenance.

Toy 36 is considered the progenitor of the evolution of the American lobster boats, in a modern key and with the Italian taste. Toy 36 like all the other Toy (47/51/67) are boats built like a tailor-made suit, personalized for the needs of each single owner.
