The UB88 Patrick T. Kennedy is being fitted as a tour boat by Owner / Captain Timothy Kennedy, seen here with his nephew Timothy.
The UB88 is a 50 foot Naval Utility Boat built in 1988 for the Aircraft Carrier USS Dwight D. Eisenhower .
This is Captain T. Kennedy’s second Restoration of a Naval Utility Boat, the first one is the UB85 Joseph S. Kennedy operating in Boston Harbor.
“The Joseph S. Kennedy is a 50 ft. Navy launch built in 1985 that… we have restored. In it’s early years, the Kennedy was attached to the USS Roosevelt, a US Navy aircraft carrier. Our vessel is named after Joseph S. Kennedy, the grandfather of our boat’s captain. Lovingly known as “Papa Joe”, he was a gunner’s mate who served in both World War I and II. Come join our family’s passion for the Boston Harbor and all of the history and sites it has to offer. “
