New to sailing

While being a long time "boater", I am generally new to sailing. I recently purchased a 1984 Barberis 30 which is made in Italy. I learned that almost 300 were made over a 10 year period by the manufacturer Cantieri Barberis and all for the US market. Would love to hear from any other Barberis owner in the States especially on the east coast. Funny enough, A google search of that particular model come up empty. Where are the other 299 sailboats?

Let's hope that the other 299 are all still floating at least. Welcome to SailNet!

Re: New to sailing

Yes, Welcome!

Perhaps your boat is known by a different name? Why don't you post some pics, and maybe someone will recognize it. Or just to show it off!

Is it a 29 like This one?: Barberis Show 29

Re: New to sailing

Welcome to sailnet, mplight.

Barberis boats seem rather rare, but I found an old thread for a 38-footer from which you might glean something useful:

Re: New to sailing

This reminds me of the foot-in-mouth statement by former US Ambassador to Italy, Peter Secchia, when he said while serving as ambassador that "the best way to see the Italian navy is with a glass bottom boat". Didn't go over well at the time.
