FREQUENTLY ASKED QUESTIONS
The list is so long now, and there has been so little movement in the past few years (with the recent housing crunch in SF) that it no longer makes sense to add more names.
In the past, some public marinas had what was commonly referred to as the “3 day rule”, where one could sleep on their boat 3 days in a 7 day period. WE ARE NOT A PUBLIC MARINA. We are a private marina, and WE DO NOT have a “3 day rule”.
If you are using your slip as your “place in the city” rather than exclusively for recreational boating, that constitutes an illegal liveaboard. You will be asked to leave. Please do not inconvenience yourself or us by ignoring this BCDC legislated restriction on vessel use.
Housing prices in the city and unprecedented requests have forced us to become INCREDIBLY vigilant in detecting those using their boats as a “pied-a-terre”.
Please note-Live aboard permits are granted to individuals, not slips, and are non-transferrable. If you buy or rent a boat slip that was formerly occupied by a boater with a live aboard permit, you are NOT entitled to his or her permit.
We do not take liveaboard applications from the general public; in order to submit a liveaboard application you must already be a tenant or at least an accepted applicant. Please note- yes, the the liveaboard waitlist is still closed as of 2017, even to current tenants.
The marina charges an additional liveaboard fee per month to offset the increased facility upkeep costs. The Harbor Master approves all live aboard agreements and fees are paid directly to the Marina Office.
We do not forsee the list being reactivated in the next calendar year.
What is your cancellation policy?
According to your berthing agreement, either party may terminate the boat slip lease with a 30-day written notice.
Which side do we tie up?
We offer full slips with finger docks on each side and a few side ties with only one finger.
Do you have a pump-out station?
The pump out station is located on A Dock. It is available 24/7 for free. When you just don’t want to pump your own sewage or you want your boat serviced regularly, you can contract with Bay Green who has a boat stationed in our marina.
What if I lose my keys or parking card?
Keys and parking cards can be replaced for a $25.00 nonrefundable fee. Contact the Marina Office as soon as you realize the keys and cards are lost so that we can deactivate them. The office is open 9:00 am – 5:00 pm every day.
What is the difference between a slip owner and renter?
All of PIER 39 Marina’s boat slips are long term subleases. A slip owner buys the use of the space, in our case, the water space between the two finger docks. All subleases end in 2034. When you buy a sublease, you buy the balance of time left on that sublease. Monthly assessments are paid by the slip owner, as well as yearly property taxes to the City of San Francisco. The sublease is transferable so you can resell your sublease to another party. Slip renters sign a berthing agreement for month to month rental of the boat slip. Slips can be rented through the Marina Office, or directly with the slip owner.
