Barquito is the result of a loving five-year restoration of a beautiful 101+ year-old yacht. I want to share her with you and let you feel for yourselves what it was like to live in an era of superb craftsmanship and wooden boats. I have been restoring and building boats for decades and feel that Barquito is my crowning achievement. On the verge of sinking, I bought this craft and in five years of work, brought her back to a better than original state. come see for yourself. Scott
5.0 out of 5!
Paula and I had an absolutely fantastic time on this piece of fine history as well with Scott and friends taking us out on the water to see the sights. I would highly recommend a stay on this wonderful ship to any and all. Best wishes to Captain Scott and may he sail on for many years to come. Chas
