BARRO PEDALO

HISTORICAL PEDAL BOATS

NOSTALGIC

SUSTAINABLE

EMMISSION-FREE

No, we don't have any motor boats - even if it looks like this: We have been collecting, maintaining and restoring classic pedal boats from the 50s to 80s for 10 years now: all as stylish as Italian speedboats, only completely emission-free! They originally come from Bavaria: Barro is the name of the shipyard that has been building aluminum boats since 1955 until today.

 

Do you own one of these beautiful Barro boats? Then you will have painfully noticed that, despite their robustness, the ravages of time have gnawed at the Barro pedalos. But restoration and maintenance are definitely worth it! Barro Bootsbau GmbH has stopped the production of pedal boat. You can still purchase the last original spare parts exclusively from us. Let's go on a treasure hunt!           

 

 

 

 

 

 
 

THE WHO IS WHO THE PEDAL BOAT GUARD

Don't have your own boat? Never mind - you can rent one from us and sail across the Spree in a lovingly restored pedalo with the steering wheel in hand. You can be sure of admiring looks ...

 

All Barro pedalos are handcrafted, each one is a little different. They have sonorous names like Seagull, Pike or Penguin and so we have put together the Who's Who of our fleet for you.

 

 

"MÖWE"(Seagull)

 

 

This two-seater pedal boat was built from 1955, is 4.20 m long, 1.20 m wide and weighs approx. 100 kg.

The 2 driver's seats are adjustable, the small bench is only suitable for children.

Our Bluna and the beautiful Rosi have a windscreen, the light blue seagull has no pane.

 

Our fleet: 4 seagulls

 
 

THE DELPHIN

THE PENGUIN

 

 

Despite its length of 4.60 m, the dolphin is only suitable as 2-person pedalo and was built from the early 1960s onwards.
 

The 2 driver's seats are adjustable, the small bench is more suitable for children.

This boat is also available as a 4-seater, the penguin. It is about 20 kg heavier and 4.85 m long.

These are the only boats from the Barro shipyard that do not have an alminium deck but a poly deck.

 

Our fleet: 1 dolphin. We don't have penguin in our rental fleet.

 

"HECHT" (Pike)

 

 

A delicate 3-seater pedal boat - was built from the early 1970s, is only 4.00 m long, 1.40 m wide, weighs approx. 180 kg and is again made entirely of aluminum.

The 2 driver's seats are adjustable, the back seat is suitable for 1 adult or 2 small children. For taller people, we recommend our 4-seater, the Shark, which offers much more space!

This boat is available with and without a windscreen.

 

By the way: In a 3 or 4-seater pedal boat, only 2 people step at a time. You can make yourself comfortable on the back seat.

 

Our fleet: 2 pike

 

"HAI" (Shark)

 

 

Our limousine offers space for up to 4 adults. The shark was built from the early 1970s, is 4.60 m long, 1.40 m wide and weighs almost 200 kg.

The 2 driver's seats are adjustable, the back seat is suitable for 2 adults or of course for children.

 

By the way: In a 3 or 4-seater pedal boat, only 2 people step at a time. You can make yourself comfortable on the back seat.

 

Our fleet: 3 sharks

 

THE PROTOTYPE

 

 

The smallest of our pedal boats, the beautiful Elektra, is a real rarity: At the beginning of the 1970s, Barro built this prototype for a new pedal boat, the "Hecht" (pike). The pike grew and became a three-seater pedal boat. Little "Elektra", however, never went into production.

We bought it without a pedal mechanism, it was equipped with an electric motor. That's how we named her Elektra. But we like muscle power and have given it the right pedal boat mechanics - runs!

 

By the way, she has no back seat, really only 2 seats, adjustable of course. She is only 3.90 metres short and a real flyweight.

 

Our fleet: 1 Elektra
