BARKISSIMO was built as a shrimp trawler in Saint Augustine, Florida back in 1964, and was originally purchased by the National Sea Urchin Fisheries Department as a research vessel.  She was fitted with scientific instruments for measuring the oceans and the life forms therein. She spent several years cruising the Atlantic and Pacific Oceans, and once made her way up to Lake Michigan, according to Coast Guard records. 

The boat is built of cypress planks and ribs, and is double-hulled. Cypress is an excellent material for boat construction, because of its resistance to rot, worms, and other marine related problems. The hull is more than six inches thick, and finished fair. The hull is gracefully shaped for a fishing vessel, and actually leaves no wake when unladen at cruising speed. The power comes from a single Caterpillar turbo Diesel engine, a # 434, which has six pistons, each the diameter of a basket ball, which provide plenty of torque and horsepower to easily turn the 60", four bladed brass propeller. The fuel capacity is now 600 gallons of diesel and 500 gallons of water.

The boat has come a long way since she was a research vessel, and now awaits the next phase of her life as a floating Dockside Charter Yacht, complete with amazing food, ambiance, and sunsets.
