Here’s a cool little video of the 12.5m Barracuda SV we have just launched out on her rough weather sea trials recently, with some great Arial drone footage of her going through some fairly big breaking seas offshore.

Built for ‘Future Defence’ in the USA she is designed for search & rescue and coastal patrol duties. She is fully self-righting, able to recover if capsized by a large breaking sea and capable of all-weather operations. Powered by a pair of Caterpillar C8.7 650hp engines, ZF two speed gearboxes with surface drive propulsion by France Helices, she has a maximum speed of 43kts. Able to comfortably accommodate a crew of four on ‘SHOXS’ shock mitigation seating and two passenger in a well-appointed cabin. Live aboard accommodation is provided in the forward accommodation with two berths, dinette seating, a full galley, with separate heads and electrical compartments. A 5kw generator provides on board AC and an 18,000btu Dometic air-conditioning unit provides climate control on board. She is fitted with a very comprehensive array of Garmin navigation and communication equipment. An integral transom platform allows for dive operations from a spacious aft deck. Wide side decks allow for safe alongside ship boarding.
The vessel combines an all-weather operational envelope, high speed capabilities and long endurance, with a range of over 500nm.
