There are 2 6' 8" full length bunks in this cabin with ample room for a built in toliet. Convertible top can be added for added protection from the elements and can be installed from the flying bridge windshield aft of the center cockpit. Convertible tops are not supplied but can easily be acquired at local firms.

The complete boat kit includes: The 2 full length bunks (less upholstery, all other parts to completely build the design, hull, cabin, deck superstructure, but does not include the flying bridge windshield, bow rails, or any of the hardware items, seats, and so forth, listed under optional equipment.

The unique hull design of the Barracuda Series is truly unusual. Starting from the deep V section in the bow, the bottom flattens out to a semi 12 transom V which combines exceptional performance with ease of ride and economy. With its high dead rise forward and compound curvature producing bottom and side planking that is concave yet flares beautifully with no steam bending necessary. Side and bottom paneling can be put on easily by the amateur with no previous experience.

Complete Boat Kits for the Barracuda Series includes: All marine plywood and solid mahogany framing and other parts precut, numbered and ready to assemble. For futher information on Boat Kits see secction, 4 - Ways to Build Your Boat.

The Barracuda cabin cruiser is fast, sporty, and extremely maneuverable at any speed.
