I know this boat, but never sailed it. There are two versions afaik. Until 1974 it was built with a short deckhouse, after that year the deckhouse was extended.
It has a small mainsail
and a big genoa
, typical of the era.
It is a seaworthy
and balanced boat. The ones I saw had a Buck 12 HP engine
. On the Italian market, it was competing with the Comet 9.10 by Comar (a very successful boat).
The owner of the boatyard who built it, Giancarlo Barberis, has recently published a book, telling the story of the Barberis boats.
