Barke® Flap Rudder
EXTREME HIGH LIFT
The Barke® flap rudder is the solution for any vessel requiring high manoeuvrability combined with proven fuel savings.
With its progressively rotating flap, the Barke® rudder generates high lift forces at large rudder angles and low drag (resistance) at small rudder angles.
The enclosed linkage system of the Barke® rudder provides overload protection and eliminates the entry risk of sand, ice and floating objects. These are ideal characteristics for fishing and research vessels, and dredgers.
- Best suited to seagoing vessels in the medium-speed range.
- Excellent manoeuvring and course-keeping
- Low noise and vibration levels
- 45º rudder angle + 55º flap angle = total 100º
- Long lifespan
