FAR BARCELONA has been a project of the FAR Consortium shipyard in  Barcelona for the
last 10 years.  Through a joint project of the city of Barcelona, the regional Catalan government,
and the European Regional Development Fund, the Norwegian
jakt, which had been built in 1874, has
been restored to sailing condition and will participate in STI's Mediterranean tall ships series.
