Marinship was a massive shipyard built at incredible speed after the attack on Pearl Harbor in 1941, primarily on landfill dumped into tidal marshlands and shallow waters in San Francisco Bay on the northern coast of Sausalito. The Marinship shipyards produced cargo vessels and oil tankers for the U.S. Navy, setting records for producing ships faster than any other facility. Thousands of workers streamed in from all over the country to work at the huge facility, part of a wartime population boom in the Bay Area that continued after the end of the war in 1945.
When peace returned after the end of World War II the Marinship shipyard was closed even more quickly than it had been built, and the U.S. Navy sold off portions of the shipyard to private interests ranging from boat builders to land speculators.
Marinship now houses offices, houseboat piers, marine businesses and restaurants.
