We are very pleased to be involved in the restoration of the S&S-designed Baruna. Designed in 1938 this classic racing ketch from the pre- and post-WWII era is similar in concept to iconic S&S designs like Bolero and Dorade. Baruna is one of the few famous S&S racing yachts of that period yet to be restored.
Our office will be responsible for all naval architecture, the redesign of the interior, sailplan, deck layout and systems installations. We are also involved in the restoration of her wooden hull structure at specialists Robbe und Berking in Germany.
The yard has a vast amount of experience restoring vintage timber yachts. Baruna’s performance will be optimised under the CIM (Comite International de la Mediterranee) handicap system and an extensive study has been carried out to compare sloop and yawl rigs, both of which were stepped in the past.
Baruna is the third S&S restoration project with we have been involved following Tempest and the Huisman-built ketch Yonder.
