Project: Hunton 50 Barracuda

Its very rare today to see a boat builder stick to its roots, but this has always been the spirit at British company Hunton, who has always concentrated in building fast sport power boats. Now this famed powerboat builder presents it largest project to date with the fifty feet Barracuda. The Hunton 50 Barracuda challenges similar fast boats from Europe or USA, and will feature a single stepped Vee shaped hull. So far we have no accommodation details but Hunton is promising a well laid out super yacht finished plan. Project Barracuda by Hunton is also promising a comfortable exterior having a full wrap around style protective cockpit, with helm and crew pods equipped with shock absorbers for the best comfort while underway. This is followed by cockpit seating, loungers and generous storage outside. Power is to be from triple Cummins 480hp engines with NXT performance stern drives which according to Hunton should deliver speeds around the 70 knots mark.
