BJ Marine's Beneteau Barracuda Range Feature at Dublin Angling Show

14th February 2019
BJ Marine's Beneteau range is heading for the Angling Show in Swords, County Dublin this weekend BJ Marine's Beneteau range is heading for the Angling Show in Swords, County Dublin this weekend

Following on from the success of last year's show and the positive reaction to the Barracuda 6 BJ Marine have decided to double our presence at this weekend's Angling Show at Swords in County Dublin.

BJ Marine will have the largest boat display at the show, exhibiting the Barracuda 6 and 8.

The Barracuda range has been an incredible success which is growing from strength to strength. Orders for new Barracudas in the last 12 months are high in the double digits and more and more serious fishermen are coming on board all the time.

BJ Marine will be commissioning a new Barracuda with a custom hull design for the Barracuda tour fishing competition in France in May this year and will be hosting the first ever Irish qualifier for the Barracuda tour. The Irish qualifiers will be held at Greystones in County Wicklow on the first weekend in April, the competition is open to all boats, with free entry for all Beneteau owners. There will be a reception and after-party, with many great prizes for the winners and runners up. The top prize is a trip for a team to compete in the Grand finale in Arzon France from 15th-18th of May. The prize includes flights, entertainment, accommodation and the winners compete in the specially commissioned BJ Marine Barracuda.

BJ Marine will have special pricing available at the show for the few models which are still available for this year. While most models are sold out for this season, we have one Barracuda 8 left in stock and opportunity for a new Barracuda 9 to be delivered in April/May. The New Barracuda 9 was debuted at Southampton last year and there are two boats arriving in for Irish clients very soon.

Unlike many news sites, we haven’t put up a paywall because we want to keep our marine journalism open. is Ireland's only full–time marine journalism team and it takes time, money and hard work to produce our content.

So you can see why we need to ask for your help.
