New Summer Sublease Buy Back Program

This summer, in an effort to provide additional guest moorage, Shilshole Bay Marina is looking to “buy back” slips that are 60’ and over, including end-ties, from now until September 30. Moorage customers who would otherwise sublease or vacate their slips during the summer months would be relieved of the effort to find a sublease, and relieved of needing to pay for the slip they are not using. It could be for one month, or all of these months. In exchange, the marina would then use these slips for guest moorage.

If you are interested in this program, please send us an email at stating your name, slip number, and the month(s) you are proposing we buy back your slip. We will then contact you buy phone or email to confirm your slip will be in the program.
