Yacht Harbor


Clipper Yacht Harbor’s goals are focused on being the best harbor in Sausalito. We require all tenants to follow the rules & regulations of the harbor.

1. Vessel Repairs: Tenant agrees not to use, or permit to be used, any paint remover, burning of paint, or spray guns on the vessel or his/her personal property. No major repairs of the hull, engine, or trailer shall be made to Tenant’s vessel or property while it is located at the Harbor. Only light maintenance to the vessel is permitted at the Harbor. Heavy sanding and fiberglass grinding must be done at a boat yard. Tenant shall survey carefully the amount of residue that may be displaced before beginning what appears to be a simple project.

2. Vessel Maintenance: Vessel or personal property will be maintained in a neat and clean condition. Vessels that sit idle months on end and look unattended will draw attention from undesirables. If Tenant elects to cover the vessel, a fitted cover must be used. Plastic tarps are not allowed. Weather, wind and sun cause them to deteriorate and, as they break down, small pieces fall into the water. Plastic tarps catch rainwater and can sink a vessel. Vessel covers also need to be hosed off from time to time and be kept clean. The area surrounding Tenant’s vessel should be free from clutter. Access to fingers between each vessel must be obstruction free and safe for boarding of vessels. Personal items must be stored neatly on vessels or in dock boxes. This includes kayaks and dinghies. Dry Storage spaces must be kept clean. Personal items should not be left around trailers.

3. Waste and Refuse Disposal: It is unlawful, and a violation to throw, discharge, or deposit any waste or refuse matter, oily rags, or flammable liquid into the Bay or at the Harbor. Any vessel with automatic bilge pumps must be maintained in a manner that insures this type of matter is automatically pumped from the vessel. Every Tenant should be using a holding tank or port-o-potty on their vessel. The pump out station at the fuel dock can be used as often as needed and is free to Tenants. Port-o-potties can be cleaned out at the port-o-potty cleaning station in back of the main restrooms between Basin 2 and Basin 3. Port-o-potties must not be emptied in the toilets in the restrooms. Use only the designated port-o-potty cleaning area. Tenant agrees to use oil-absorbing materials in the bilge of their vessel. Liquid waste must be disposed properly. No hazardous wastes and/or solvents can be disposed in the garbage receptacles. Hazardous wastes and solvents can be disposed at your Local Household Hazardous Waste Collection Site or the Marin Resource Recovery Center located at 565 Jacoby St., San Rafael, CA 94901 Telephone # (415) 485-5646.

4. Unsafe Conditions: Tenant is required to notify the Harbor Office of any unsafe or hazardous conditions that come to their attention. Disorderly conduct by a Tenant or his/her visitors that might cause injury to persons or damage to property shall be cause for immediate termination of Tenancy. All accidents to vessels, property, or Harbor property must be reported immediately to the Harbor Office.

5. Parking Policy: Parking is permitted only while using the Harbor. No long-term parking is permitted. Tenants are allowed to park their vehicle in the parking lot while they are on their vessel. All unauthorized vehicles or vessels parked at the Harbor will be ticketed and/or towed at owner’s expense. If you are going on a boat trip for more than a day and want to leave your car in the lot while you are cruising, a parking permit shall be obtained from the Harbor office.

6.Insurance: Tenants must carry a minimum of $500,000 (five hundred thousand) minimum liability insurance on their vessel and include an endorsement naming Clipper Yacht Co. LLC as an additional insured on their policy. All vendors, workers, and subcontractors hired to work on your vessel must carry a minimum of $1,000,000 liability insurance and name Clipper Yacht Co. LLC, as an additional insured on their policy. All vendors, workers, subcontractors with employees must carry workers’ compensation insurance. Proof of insurance and workers’ compensation must be submitted to the harbor office prior to performing any maintenance or labor on any vessel.

7. Tide Tables: Sailing in and out of Richardson Bay at a zero or minus tide is not in good judgment. You can run aground if you are not careful. Tide books are available at the harbor office.

8. Pets: Pets must be kept on a leash at all times. You must pick up after your pet. Pet bags are available on the peninsula and at the walkway to the fuel dock for your convenience. Do not hose droppings into the water, please pick up and dispose in a garbage receptacle. Any dog or cat roaming at the harbor will be brought to the Marin Humane Society.

9. Dock Box: Remember to latch the lid of your dock box or the wind may blow it open and rip it off the box.

10. Electrical Cords: If you see a cord in the bay, report it immediately to the Harbor Office.

11. No skateboards, roller blades, bicycles, motor scooters, motorbikes are allowed on the docks.

12. Dock Carts are provided for your convenience. After you use the dock cart, please return it to the basin gate entrance for the next tenant to use.

13. No fish cleaning is permitted on the docks or anywhere in the harbor. No fish entrails are to be thrown into the Bay.

14. Report all toxic spills to the office immediately. Boaters are prohibited to use detergents and emulsifiers on fuel spills.

Clipper Yacht Club logo

After nine successful years in the Merchant Marines, Cliff Pedersen returned to Sausalito in 1946 where his vision for Clipper Yacht Harbor began to take shape.

Starting with 40 acres of land acquired through the War Assets Administration, Clipper has since grown into Sausalito’s largest and most diverse full-service harbor with over 700 slips and a full complement of marine services.
