Barkissimo is a beautiful Classic motor yacht berthed in the town of Emeryville, California. Emeryville is nestled between Oakland and Berkeley, and only four miles from San Francisco, with lots of shopping and entertainment, it is the perfect place to call your home base as you discover the wonders of the Bay area and Northern California.
We are a floating oasis, a luxurious bed and breakfast with just three wonderful staterooms, offering an extremely intimate and private experience. Prices quoted in this listing are for one room only. If you are interested in all 3 rooms please inquire about rates.
The master suite is in the aft (back) of the yacht and is a large and comfortable room with lots of windows, a private bath, fine linens and fluffy towels, fancy soaps and shampoos. The gentle lapping of the wavelets and creaking of the lines as the vessel softly rocks will sooth you completely as you relax and rest.
The captain's stateroom is large and comfortable, slightly smaller than the master's stateroom, boasting a queen bed, jacuzzi tub, and all the amenities as mentioned above in the master suite.
The Navigator's Cabin is the coziest of all with it's private Artisan-tiled marina shower, a queen bed and also all the amenities as mentioned above in the master suite.
Any of the three stateroom can be yours or you have the option of renting all of them out if you have a larger party or would like total privacy.
Your stay begins as we greet you at your car and carry your bags as we escort you to the yacht. There, you are welcomed with a snack and glass of wine between 5:00-6:00. The area boasts lots of entertainment and night life, and we will be glad to make recommendations and reservations for you if you desire.
You can enjoy the hot tub on the upper deck as you take in the lights of the Berkeley hills and celestial bodies that fill the night sky; a truly wonderful way to end your day.
When you awake, we invite you to partake of our breakfast, which features fruits, pastries and a warm entree such as one of the many quiche creations Barkissimo is famous for.
Barkissimo is also the home of the "Music on the water concert series", featuring a variety of talented artists performing shows in our intimate and magical setting. Please see our web site for the schedule of upcoming events. As our guest, you are invited to enjoy the activities while they coincide with your visit.
Guests will have access to the upper deck and main salon. You may also request use of the fridge and microwave. Storage for luggage may also be requested.

Our stay at Barkissimo was amazing. My wife and I stayed there as her surprise birthday gift and Im so happy thats what I chose. Everything was top notch. Max, our host was delightful and made us feel right at home, had dinner by the water and enjoyed the cozy water side. Waking up to delicious breakfast and smiles was great too, the rest of the crew was equally pleasant. We didnt want to leave. Would recommed this gateaway ship to anyone.
Beautiful bay area - peaceful, relaxing.
Well-maintained boat with a touch of zen.
Truly wonderful experience.
This boat is fantastic! The breakfast was excellellent.
Wow! If you're looking for a unique experience, I would HIGHLY suggest staying at the Barkissimo. We were looking for a place to stay before heading to a concert in Berkeley and I am so glad we found this listing. The staff was incredibly responsive to every detail and made us feel so welcome to be on the Yacht! We were greeted by Vincent who helped us with our bags, and gave us a very informative history of the Yacht. Our Host, Scott was very pleasant and gracious though out our stay. Max and the rest of the staff were awesome and made us feel right at home.
We stayed in the owners room which was exactly as described. Plenty of space to move around, the linens were soft, the bed is SOOO comfortable and we spelt like babies! We also went for an evening dip in the hut tub which was a perfect way to end the evening.
We woke to a great breakfast of fresh fruit, pastries, the famous quiche and fresh juice. This was a great way to wrap up our on the Barkissimo.
Again, Thank you to Scott, Vincent, Max, Sharry and Hannah for an amazing time on the Barkissimo!
Until Next Time,
Mike & Erin
The boat is beautiful! It is clean, well furnished and has great view. Scott was extremely helpful and friendly. We have a great time!
We loved Barkissimo. The boat is absolutely charming and the Owners Stateroom is wonderful.
Most importantly though, Scott, Vincent, Max, KS andMaggie were fantastic hosts. Very warm human- and met every need
Also thought the other guests were absolutely charming
Barkissimo was an amazing experience for us! We've stayed at the yacht for a night and Max and Vincent greeted us with a bottle of wine and cheese. After chatting with them on the upper deck, they've shared with us home made vegan banana cakes. It was definitely a very personalized experience.
The breakfast was great! I had my first keesh at the Barkissimo and it tasted amazing. (a perfect blend of sweet and savory) After the breakfast Max made us one of a kind spicy tea.
Overall, the Barkissimo was a great experience for us and definitely set the standards really high. The crew members had an impeccable knowledge on hospitality industry and know how to make guests feel comfortable.
