There is only one true BARKE® rudder and that is made by Damen Marine Components.
Custom designed to your specifications, our BARKE® rudder ensures you the ultimate in manoeuvring and course-keeping. Its highly sophisticated flap design also provides maximum operational comfort. The BARKE® rudder is the solution if you are looking to invest in 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 the problems caused by contact with floating objects or ice.
