A Community Boating Center for Sausalito


Our mission is to preserve a gathering place on Sausalito’s unique waterfront to engage and educate the public about our rich maritime history and small craft heritage through affordable direct experience.

The community boating center will advocate environmental awareness, seamanship and safety, promote the use, building and display of traditional wooden boats and maritime crafts, and teach life skills through maritime education.

It will be a place for local maritime groups to hold classes, access the waterfront and build community through outreach. - mission statement

Our immediate goal is to restore docks and facilities and bring them to ADA compliance.

To do this we need to raise $150,000.
—- $47,830 to go!! —-
The docks, which are adjacent to Dunphy Park, will be owned by the City of Sausalito and accessible to the public. We will teach sailing to children and adults and have part of our fleet available for rental.
We will also have traditional wooden boats on display, an eco class room, and indoor exhibition space.
