Italian shipyard Sanlorenzo has delivered the 13th hull in its entry-level series, a 24.6 metre (81-foot) SL78 yacht named Barracuda.
Sold by Sanlorenzo Spain to a Northern European client, Barracuda was united with her owner earlier this month and has arrived at her home berth in Puerto Portals, Mallorca.
The delivery comes after Sanlorenzo launched Balance – the 14th hull in the same series – last month. Like Barracuda, Balance will be permanently based in Mallorca.
Built in Ameglia to RINA standards, Barracuda features a four-cabin layout. All accommodation is provided on the lower deck with a full-beam owner’s suite, VIP stateroom and two twin cabins. In addition, the crew quarters will house staff of up to three people.
Moving aft, Barracuda’s 3.95 metre jet tender will be stored in an aft tender garage, and easily managed using an innovative hydraulic launching system.
The yard revealed Barracuda has been "carefully tailored" to meet the needs of her owner, who plans to cruise the Mediterranean for a lengthy period.
The bright 70GT interior is a notable trademark of the SL78 series, an inviting design developed in collaboration with Officina Italiana Design.
Power will come from twin 1,622hp MTU 10V2000 M96L diesel engines, allowing for a top speed of 29 knots.
