The latest design from Barracuda Yacht Design, 50m B165, is under 500gt, and contains all of the service areas and crew quarters on the lower deck where the beach club and tender garage are also located.

“We believe this design offers everything the market needs in a vessel of this size,” explained principal designer and founder of Barracuda Yacht Design, Iñigo Toledo. “Owners often comment on how they would like to be closer to the sea, how they would like to have bigger tenders on board and to have a layout that is more logical and practical for guests and crew to get around. Our answer to this demand is the B165.”

The studio set out to create a motoryacht that avoids short-term fashion and unnecessary excess, while still creating an attractive, yet understated design, with a military-esque feel to it. This can be seen in the lines of the hull, which benefits from the efficiency harnessed in the design of military vessels.

The guest suites are located forward on the main deck and include folding balconies. This level is also home to the main living areas, avoiding the need to climb up or down stairs to access the main entertainment areas of the vessel. While the owner’s en suite cabin is located on the upper deck and includes a large bedroom and walk-in wardrobe.

The interior design also features a beach club/gym on the lower deck, which offers almost 180-degree views when its large side and aft doors are open.
