Live-Aboard Slips in Seattle
Salmon Bay Marina has a limited number of live-aboard slips in Seattle. We have a waiting list for live-aboard status. Live-aboard slip sizes range from 30' - 50' Covered and up to 150' uncovered. The slips have 30 amp and 50 amp electrical power with 110 VAC. If your lifestyle includes living on-board please let us know. We may have slips available. The rates for the new slips can be found under rates. Effective December 2016.
A Tenant requires live-aboard status if they stay 16 nights or more aboard the vessel occupying a single assigned slip or berth during any one-month time period.
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.
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.
