Barbican 35

Brief details

Builder

Barbican Yacht Construction, Plymouth

The Barbican 35 is a classic moderately heavy displacement GRP long-keeler. They are very comfortable traditional cruising yachts with the potential for serious passage-making. Barbican Yachts offered semi-custom interiors, although some hulls were fitted out by other companies, including the example shown here.

Designed by Holman & Pye, the Barbican 35 was built from 1987 to the early 1990s, and is based on Kim Holman's earlier Super Sovereign ketch, with an all-glass hull and deck, a taller sloop rig and a reworked interior. The exact number of Barbican 35s built is not known, but it was probably quite low.

'Yachting Monthly' reviewed the Barbican 35 design, saying "....She offers up to six berths, a good-sized heads forward, a practical galley with good headroom under the low doghouse and a good chart table. The saloon is narrow but not cramped. Performance is steady and she handles well".

Pedestal
Barbican 35

There are not many other traditional long-keelers around that are all GRP and as recently built as these Barbicans. She is slightly longer, slightly narrower and a little heavier than a Vancouver 34, and of generally similar size and weight, and equally as good-looking as a Rustler 36, another Holman & Pye classic.
