Upcoming live-aboard slips: Currently all of our Live-aboard moorage slips are leased. Live-aboard moorage is being re-evaluated in an effort to comply with the recent proposal of the Seattle Shoreline Master Plan (SMP). We anticipate having additional live-aboard moorage slips available as a newly revised Moorage Agreement is developed in order to comply with the City's requirements.

Call for status on our wait list.

Moorage rate is dependent on the slip length or boat length whichever is greater. A meter fee includes the first 100 KW of electricity.

One way to obtain a Seattle live-aboard slip is to purchase a boat that already has live-aboard moorage. Occasionally, believe it or not, live-aboards become land lovers or possibly have lifestyle changes that result in a desire to sell their boat. In this case, the seller allows the live-aboard slip to be released to the purchaser. Such sales must take place through Salmon Bay Boat Sales, our in-house boat brokerage.

Salmon Bay Marina Live-Aboard community is a discerning community. We are a family oriented marina. Tenants wishing to become part of the live-aboard community will be required to be interviewed and accepted by Salmon Bay Marina. Background checks and references will be requested.
