BARKE® Rudder

The BARKE® rudder ensures the ultimate in manoeuvring and course-keeping. Its highly sophisticated flap design also provides maximum operational comfort.
The BARKE® rudder is the best solution for those looking to invest in both today and tomorrow. The progressively operating flap linkage system is contained in a fully enclosed, grease-lubricated BARKE® housing. This results in minimum wear on the linkage components and eliminates the risk of sand entry or problems caused by contact with floating objects or ice. Install the original BARKE® rudder and reap the benefits for many years to come.
