Sausalito Floating Homes Tour

This year's Floating Homes Tour will offer an easy-paced look at some of our most unique houseboats and floating homes in this distinctively colorful waterfront community. The tour also will include exhibits by local artists, food and refreshments for purchase and free live music throughout the day. This year's theme is "Homefront on the Waterfront" in recognition of the 75th anniversary of Sausalito's Marinship, which helped give birth to our wonderful and creative floating neighborhood. Marinship was a truly unique phenomenon. Beginning in March of 1942, the mudflats of Sausalito were quickly transformed into Marinship — a new West Coast shipyard built to fulfill the urgent need for ships during WWII. Seven months later, the first Liberty Ship was launched. After the end of World War II the shipyards were decommissioned almost as rapidly as they had been built, taking with them almost all of the jobs that so many had moved to the Bay Area to take during the war. The area subsequently became home to an enlarged Sausalito houseboat community. Reservations always sell out so book yours early.
