Coming Soon ‒ The Sasga 12 & 16 Fly...

Design

These Balearic-style models were drawn by Barracuda Yacht Design.

OCTOBER 2010

Barracuda is developing for Sasga Yachts of Menorca a range of distinctive ‘Balearic-style’ motorboats, traditionally referred to as Llaüts after the rowing boats used centuries ago by Menorcan fishermen.
The first two designs are already in build – the Sasga 12 and Sasga 16. The first Sasga 12 will complete for spring 2011 and the larger Sasga 16 Fly (bottom image) will follow in 2012. Construction using sandwich composites will take place at Sasga Yachts in
Menorca.
Due to very rounded stern sections and beam width proportions carried almost the entire length of the hull, this hull shape is famous for delivering plenty of internal volume with good seakeeping characteristics. Both versions have flexible interior accommodation layouts and ‘walk-around’ access to generous fore and aft-deck spaces and large swim-platforms. The larger fly-bridge version can accommodate six people in three cabins, plus a steward/skipper in a forecastle cabin.
Propulsion for the Sasga 12 will be via either twin 260hp or 315hp diesels; cruising speeds range from 12 knots upto 18-20 knots. Efficient hull lines can offer economic cruising in the range of 500-plus nautical miles at12 knots and 300-plus nautical miles at15 knots.
The Sasga 12 is priced from €360,000, excluding taxes. The Sasga 16 is POA.
