Renters & Subleases

PIER 39 Marina is made up of 300 privately-owned subleased slips. First purchased in 1984 for a 50 year period, these subleases can be resold to new lessees. Subleases carry monthly assessment fees, which contribute to the general marina fund that pays for repairs and improvements to the common areas. Most Slip leases expire in 2034.

There are two ways to become a tenant at PIER 39 Marina. You can rent a slip, or buy the remaining time on a sublease.

What’s available at the marina?

PARKING! PIER 39 Marina has convenient parking in the PIER 39 garage, located directly across the street from the
Entrance Plaza. We have a tenant discount arrangement with the PIER 39 Parking Garage. Parking fees
are paid directly to the garage management. You receive a parking card, and will be billed against a standing garage credit,
deposited for parking use.

POWER & WATER! Each slip has both power and water. Water is free. Electricity is sub-metered and you pay for what you
use (there is a monthly connection fee generally under $10). We have 30A 125V electric outlets on all 36, 40 and 45-foot boat slips. We have 50A 125V outlets
on the 50 foot slips. A select few 50’ docks have 50A 125/250V outlets.

PUMP OUT! The pump-out station is located on A Dock. If you want your boat serviced regularly, you can contract with Bay Green who has a boat stationed in our marina.



A Slip Renter has signed a month-to-month rental agreement to occupy a Sublease Owner’s dock space. Slip Renters may submit a 30-day notice to terminate their monthly agreement, or may, in turn, be given a 30-day notice should a Sublease Owner wish to re-occupy their slip.

Owning a boat isn’t optional in your world! You’re a typical Slip SubLease Owner.

There are many reasons to buy a slip lease and as many reasons to sell one. The best reason to buy a slip lease is that you love the location.

Sublease Owners may dock their own vessel, or put their slip into BMMI’s rental program for Sublease Owners.

IMPORTANT! All tenants must show proof of current insurance and registration (and vessel survey if 20+ years old) before the vessel will be allowed into the marina.
