(NECN) - It's a Gulf sporting fisherman's dream, and it’s floating just 15 miles off the coast of Clearwater, Fla.

It may not look like much from the outside but "fisherman’s paradise" has all the modern amenities of a five-star hotel, and the ship is about to open for business.
     
The re-made barge was originally used for building natural gas pipelines.
     
Now, for 250 dollars a night, you can hop on board by parking your own boat in the ship’s onboard marina or by taking one of the paradise's fleet of shuttles.

“The mornings out here are phenomenal, the nights and the stars out here are great and the overall tranquility of the boat… If they wanted to come out here and get a nice massage and a pedicure and lounge around the pool all day they would enjoy that in the sun.”

“Fisherman’s paradise” also has a gourmet dining room and an area for more casual fare.
