The Barbican 30 is a traditional long-keeled yacht with a high quality fit-out. The hull is derived from the Halmatic 30, but with more ballast. They are strongly built and have an excellent reputation as a serious seagoing yacht. This is a really nice example of these classic long-keelers. We sold this yacht from the present owner in 2011, but he has since bought her back, and is now reluctantly selling again due to age.

Keel type

Long keel with encapsulated lead ballast

Designed for Halmatic by John Sharp, the Halmatic 30 was built from the late 1970s to mid 1980s. The design is in many ways similar to the Nicholson 31. The moulds of the Halmatic 30 were taken over by Barbican Yachts at Plymouth, after production by Halmatic ceased, the design re-emerging as the Barbican 30 after minor alterations.

The main structural difference between the Barbican 30 and the Halmatic 30s (apart from being of later build date) is that the ballast and draught was increased on the Barbican 30, giving a 53% ballast ratio, with encapsulated lead ballast instead of the external iron ballast of the Halmatic. The topsides height may also have increased by a few inches, as the Barbican has more headroom in the saloon than the Halmatic. The interior finish of the Barbicans was also rather higher quality, with more timber and a choice of wood finishes.

'Yachting Monthly' revied the Halmatic 30 and said "....Tough, seaworthy, reassuring and easy to sail solo, the Halmatic 30 is also well balanced on the helm and powerful in a blow to boot. She’s no slouch either. But perhaps her strongest suit is her easy motion at sea" and the Barbican will be very similar.

* The quoted length of 29'6" is hull length and excludes the transom-hung rudder and the installed wind-vane gear.
