The boat and concept are named in memory of the family dog, Barba, who looked after and partially raised me as a child. She was a great dog with an admirable appetite for the good and simple things in life such as food, friends and outdoor activities. As with any good friend and dog, Barba was above all a trustworthy and loyal companion. Interesting how in such a simple-minded creature you can find such great values…
The vessel itself is merely a tool for seeking adventure. And the true concept of Barba comes from all those who participate on the many nautical miles of adventures she has undertaken – and those that still lie ahead of her, of course, too. With this blog we hope to share some of our experiences as well as to inspire people with our own passion for nature and the values therein.
The adventures will all be in the spirit of my four-legged friend, Barba.
