Bare Bones


Barrabas was hand built over a six year period. The hull, deck and even the mast were built using titanium stainless steel which produced a vessel of great strength but also made for a much heavier yacht than a similar design built in ordinary steel or glass reinforced plastic. The increased weight means that Barrabas is inevitably slower and cannot run as close to wind as yachts of a similar size. This adds to teh duration of the voyage but is a small price to pay in return for the enormous increase in durability in some of the most hostile waters in the world.
