Just for the fun of it I made a search on Google images with Esquife and I could find very few images but I found two meaningful, one that sustain what you say regarding the derogatory meaning in Spanish and the other regarding the old Portuguese meaning, as a tender of a sailboat. The boats were long for allowing many rowers to give it the ability to move the mother ship without wind.
