Barracuda Yacht Design reveals 55 metre tri-deck motor yacht concept
by Miranda Blazeby
The Barracuda Yacht Design studio has revealed a 55-metre tri-deck motor yacht concept. The 500GT yacht design features an aluminium hull and superstructure and 8.3 metre beam.
Key features include a touch and go helipad on the foredeck, tender garage on the main deck and sunpads on the fly-bridge, with plenty of space for dining outside beneath a protective bimini.
The lower deck beach club has 7.2 metre “wings” that open either side while the upper deck lounge has its own pantry and serving area.
Accommodation is for a total of 10 guests comprising a full beam owner’s suite with sea terraces on either side. Four symmetrical guest cabins meanwhile sit on the main deck, which are all accessed from a central corridor connecting to the main deck saloon, dining area and aft deck.
The crew and service quarters on the lower deck meanwhile accommodate a staff of 10.
It comes after the studio presented a 44 metre sailing sloop concept in July. The “sailing explorer” also accommodates 10 guests and was described by the studio as a “fresh and robust concept in a stuck sailing market”.
