Each year the Sausalito Floating Homes Association puts on a tour of 12-15 architectural masterpieces in the floating homes community. This is the only way to get to see the inside of the boats instead of merely looking at them from the dock or across the water. The homes in the area range from repurposed World War II era working boats to custom-built concept designs, with every variation imaginable in between.
Insider Tip: Many of the homes on the tour change each year, so if you’ve gone before you’ll still see new floating homes each year.
See the videos on our Sausalito Houseboats page for an example of what you’ll see on the tour.
The 2017 Sausalito Houseboats Tour
Date: Saturday, September 24, 2016 (The 2017 date has not yet been set, but it’s always in late September since that’s a great weather time of year here.)
Time: 11:00 AM to 4:00 PM.
As many as 20 homes may be shown on the Tour this year, although the usual total is about 15. Tickets are $40. Suggestions on planning for your visit are located here.
Insiders Tip: This event usually sells out. To avoid disappointment we advise buying your tickets in advance.
Can’t make it here in September? You can see photographs of the homes on in the Floating Home Association’s virtual tour on this page.
