Safehaven Marine, the Cobh-based boatbuilding company, has revealed footage its new Barracuda vessel undergoing a high-speed boarding trial with the Irish Navy.
The Barracuda is a high speed, low radar cross-section interceptor designed specifically for military and law enforcement roles.
One of the boat”s most unique features is that a range of both lethal and non-lethal weapons can be concealed below deck and raised up through hatches only when required during conflict.
The Barracuda is also capable of operating with a high degree of invisibility to any opponent’s radar.
It recently underwent testing with the help of the Irish Navy and the Irish Maritime and Energy Research Cluster.
