Did you know that Sausalito has an Industrial and Maritime zone that spans over 200 acres? It was home to a Liberty ship production facility called the Marinship during WWII. Since that time, it has been home to a tradition of industrial and maritime innovation. Marinship is planning for a future as an innovation zone to foster entrepreneurship for existing and new companies that seek an ecosystem that will allow them to thrive.


The Marinship offers:


  • Access to the bay for maritime businesses.

  • An informal fabrication and collaboration hub among the businesses that occupy the area.

  • Marinship Business Guild, an Association for Light Industry, Maritime and Artist advocacy, marketing and information sharing.

  • Easy access via Hwy 101, Blue and Gold Ferry and Golden Gate Transit Bus
