About this Kings of Burnham 32' Bermudan Cutter

English

BARBICAN is not the classic Alan Buchanan design. She hasn’t got the sweet sweeping sheer line nor the long elegant overhangs which normally draw the eye to his other designs. Built to satisfy the requirements of Bernard Hayman, a serious offshore sailor more interested in function than form. BARBICAN has a powerful, full bodied hull shape with relatively high topsides and a heavily cambered deck. All combining to created a very powerful, easily handled, sea kindly and spacious offshore cruising yacht.

An advocate of embracing modern technology to ease the rigours of long distance offshore sailing either short or single handed. Hayman and his ideas were ahead of their time in many ways. BARBICAN being built with a focus on easy short handed sailing and comfortable windward performance in heavy weathers. Since her build she sported twin roller reefing forestays with a third babystay also capable of setting a hank-on storm sail. The subject of the rig for BARBICAN having been written about extensively at the time of her design. Below decks she boast 4 proper sea berths and an highgly function interior, ideally suited to life at sea. She has hand holds wherever you may wish to find one and lots of sensible deep storage spaces.
