The KINGFISHER was built as a Corinthian 48 with gas engines in 1959 for John A. Taylor of Clearwater Beach, Florida and named SEASONG. In 1962 she was returned to Huckins and lengthened to 50' to accommodate a pair of GMC 6V-53s. She was later re-named BARBIE. The current owner acquired KINGFISHER in 1999 and has undertaken a total restoration of the yacht during the past three years.
