Marina Bay is located in Richmond’s protected Inner Harbor in the East Bay of San Francisco Bay. Developed in the mid-1980s on the site of WWII-era Kaiser Shipyards #2, Marina Bay Yacht Harbor is also known as Richmond Marina Bay and was built by the City of Richmond. The berths are divided into four sections along the north shore: D-Dock, E-Dock, F-Dock & G-Dock (from east to west). Berth sizes range from 26′ long to 61′ long with several end-ties available up to 100+’ long. Up to 850 vessels from 20′ to 120+’ can be accommodated.
The marina Entrance Channel (also known as the Ford Channel after the Ford Plant along its northern shore) is 12′ deep at mean lower low water. The marina basin itself is 12′ to 18′ deep at MLLW, a legacy of the time when the basin was used to construct Liberty Ships during World War II. In honor of this legacy, the Rosie the Riveter/World War II Home Front National Historical Park is located at Marina Bay.
Surrounded by parks and the Bay Trail, with beautiful views of Downtown San Francisco, Oakland, Marina Bay, and the entire San Francisco Bay area Marina Bay Yacht Harbor gives boaters easy access to the Central Bay, San Rafael Bay, San Francisco, and the Pacific.
