Sneak Peek 2024: Center-Mounted Twin-Engine Barletta
For the 2024 model year, Barletta is releasing the industry’s first and only center-mounted twin-engine pontoon boat. The Indiana-based manufacturer is committed to redefining the pontoon segment with pioneering, family-focused marine products, and the brand’s latest innovation is the next step in this journey.
The patent-pending twin engine series is available on LUSSO 25 models and the two engines are mounted in the center of the transom. On other models the twin engines are typically mounted on the outer tubes. Initially, Barletta will offer engines in 350 and 400 horsepower options. The boat is rated for 450hp max per engine, for a total power configuration of 900 horsepower.
By moving the engines to the center of the transom, Barletta achieves significant performance and functionality improvements, including providing a smooth and powerful ride, while creating a safe and usable space at the stern of the boat. The functional aft deck will include two pet-friendly, wide-step boarding ladders, providing a safer and more accessible path for entering and exiting the water. (www.barlettapontoonboats.com)
