This Barbary Ketch, Barbary Spirit, designed by Walter Rainer, was fitted out by FC Mitchell &
Sons of Poole, Dorset, on mouldings by Robert Ives, of Christchurch
and launched in 1974. She was Epoxy treated in 2000.
She offers up to six berths in three cabins, has a good galley ands a
separate heads / shower. She comes with Bow Thruster, Pinta Autopilot VHF etc..
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.
