Moorage in town-22′-Lowest Price on Market


Downtown Friday Harbor Mooage.

Adjacent to the ferry landing, this moorage is really convenient with its downtown Friday Harbor location. Close to all the shops, restaurants and markets.  it is narrow getting in and out, but it drops off quick and you always have good depth at the slip. This slip location is the first one to the left you come to going down the ramp to the float.  Cannery Landing just recently rebuilt all the floats, within the last 2 years.Click here to see the details of the listing.

The Boat Show

We were at the Boat Show in Seattle on Tuesday manning our Windermere San Juan Islands booth. Great time catching up with all of the vendors, the latest in boats, the latest in boating technology and getting a chance to put our hands on the pulse of the local economy. Speaking of which is gaining momentum as boat sales are up from the year before. DSC01838DSC01832DSC01828DSC01827
