This Barbary Ketch, Barbary Rose, designed by Walter Rainer, was built by
Southern Boat Builders of Southampton in 1972. Her hull, below the waterline was
epoxied as a preventative measure in the late 1990s. She has Bamar in-mast
mainsail reefing, Sailspar headsail reefing and Lazy jacks and a stack pack on
She offers up to six berths (realistically four) in three cabins, has an
excellent galley and separate heads, she comes with electric anchor winch,
self-tailing sheet winches, Eberspacher heating, hot and cold pressurised water,
black water holding tank, refrigerator, Raymarine GPS Chartplotter and Radar,
gyro autopilot, wind speed and direction log and depth.
Mechanical propulsion is by low hours Mercedes Benz, OM636 diesel engine, TMP
Hydraulic gearbox, Halyard Aquadrive, PSS shaft seal and shaft brake to three
The Barbary Ketch is a heavy displacement, long keel
motor sailer. Her shape and displacement give her a sea kindly motion, her
wheel shelter gives protection from the elements and her powerful 42 hp
Mercedes diesel gets her home quickly when the wind drops or the tide
One very important advantage with the Barbary Ketch is that the canvas cover
over the wheelhouse can remain in place whilst sailing to provide excellent
protection for up to 4 people. All sheets for main, mizzen and Genoa are
controllable from the wheelhouse in this configuration.
Her current owners have cruised her regularly, (in all weathers!) around the Thames Estuary and regularly
over to Belgium and Holland. They have now bought a larger craft.
