The Boat Company has two vessels, the M/V LISERON and the M/V MIST COVE. The LISERON is a WWII wooden hulled Naval Minesweeper. She was built in Tacoma Washington by the US Navy in 1952, and leased to the French Navy in a war time leasing program the Department of Defense ran. The Boat Company purchased her from the French Navy in the early 90's, had her towed to Tarpon Springs Florida, where she was rebuilt from the main deck up, into her current form. Several years later, after attempting to find another vessel like the LISERON, the company had a steel hulled replica of her built to a slightly larger scale to accommodate an addition four passengers.
The LISERON carries 20 guests with a crew of 10, while the MIST COVE carries 24 guests with a crew of 12. We work hard to keep the guest to crew ratio at 2 to 1 so that we can accommodate all of our guests requests. All of the staterooms are identical, with the exception of a single stateroom on each vessel that contains twin beds. Otherwise, you will find each cabin contains a queen sized bottom bunk and full size top bunk (often used for gear storage by guests), and all cabins have identical full sized bathrooms.
