Spring 2017 Moorage News

Moorage Hours

Business Hours: 12noon to 5:30pm daily

NOTE: Door buzzers for both sites are NO longer working. Call before you arrive! Caution: Staff may not answer directly.  They are either out assisting a tenant, in a meeting or at the other moorage.  Be patient and we will call you back as soon as possible.

Marina Availability

All moorage slips are full for the season. We are accepting Waitlist Applications for upcoming vacancies. The application form is on our web site. There are just a few Dry Dock small boat spaces remaining. (less than 18’. Beam 6’ or less) They are first come first serve.

Contract Status

Seattle Parks and Recreation (SPR) plan to have the contract with Marina Management, L.L.C. (formerly Foss Waterway L.L.C.) completed by the end of the month. As often happens when legal review, negotiations, and technical review need to occur, it takes much longer than expected. Our goal is to have the legislation before the City Council in June and a contract in place by the beginning of 3rd quarter. The agreement will be public once the legislation has been transmitted to Council. Thank you for your patience. This partnership will enable us to take a giant leap forward and provide the necessary repairs to our deteriorating public moorages. .

Moorage Maintenance

SPR will continue to chip away at all of the maintenance needs at our moorages.  We have created a priority list of needs and slowly working through that list.  We will be checking all cleats for attachment, dock boards and pilings.  We are not responsible for installing new mid-ship cleats at your slip.  It is the responsibility of the tenant. As a dry dock float tenant, all boat bunks, cleats, eye bolts, tie downs, etc. must be installed by tenant and removed upon departure.

Leschi Moorages

On January 30, 2017, SPR presented a grant proposal to the Recreation and Conservation Office requesting $1M for the construction of a new breakwater/transient moorage dock for South Leschi Moorage. The grant scored well, but we will not know for certain until the funding cycle is approved by the state.  We are working with SPR Planning and Development to assign a Capital Project Coordinator to the project so it can continue to proceed through all of the government agencies and into construction.  There will be opportunity for public comment throughout the process. In preparation for the new breakwater and the South Leschi Marina,

SPR will be moving Floats #1 and #2 to North Leschi Marina in April, 2017.  There will be no need to move your boats.  We will simply be moving the float from SL to NL. All abandoned boats from Dry Docks at NL will be moved to SL Moorage.

Lakewood Moorage

“A” dock between 23-25 will receive a re-built piling and sub structure to level out the ‘roller coaster’. We need a few good days in a row to start and finish the project.  “B” dock will have new slip signs by the end of April. “C” dock seems to be handling the boat traffic and wind fairly well.  Several finger pier pilings will be supported to reduce the “wiggle”.  Unfortunately, we will not be able to eliminate all of the wiggle.


  • Slip length start at 24' and 26' to 38'
  • Dry dock storage: 17' or less

In Seattle's neighborhood of Leschi on Lake Washington, nestled north and south of on-going businesses. Some familiar eateries nearby are the Blu Water Café and Daniel's Broiler. The Leschi Market has been servicing the community and boat owners since 1948. Leschi North and South moorages have both wet and dry boat storage. With almost 200 water slips and with nearly 100 low dry dock small boat storage spaces, Leschi's rich sailing history dates back to 1949 when Leschi South was built. In 1962, the Leschi community realized the value of the publicly held moorages and added Leschi North. In collaboration with several of the sailing groups and Seattle Parks and Recreation, a small office and observation deck with an exterior platform was built to support the strong sail racing community.
