BARRACUDA RUNABOUT 18
WILL ACCOMMODATE INBOARD MOTORS, SINGLE OR DUAL 48.00OUTBOARD MOTORS OR STERN DRIVE UNITS

The Barracuda Runabout model is ideal for running out and back from your favorite fishing spot and can easily move out in rough water should the occasion arise. Or use it for general boating or water skiing. Windshields are included for the twin consoles. Accessories shown in the Runabout model, such as the upholstered back to back seats, the motor well, bow rails and hardware are at the discretion of the builder and are not included in the complete boat kit.

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, 4 - Ways to Build Your Boat.
