50' Slip in Poulsbo WA – 12 nm from Seattle – Summer Rental or Swap
I'm out cruising through late September and my marina manger has agreed to let me rent out my slip. And I tell ya, I have the BEST slip in the marina.
My 50’ slip is chock-full-o-sun, access is easy and my view of Liberty Bay and the setting sun is simply wonderful!
See the pic below with yellow arrow pointing to my slip.
Here are the specs:
Liberty Bay Marina (private marina)
Enter this address to map it:
17791 Fjord DR NE Poulsbo WA 98370
Liberty Bay Marina is NOT the public Port of Poulsbo. LBM is a private marina located a pleasant 20 min walk from historic downtown Poulsbo. As you enter Liberty Bay, it is the 1st marina on the right, followed by the Poulsbo Yacht Club marina and then the Port of Poulsbo.
Pics of the marina can be found here:
• Max length 50' overall - including swimstep & dinghy hanging off the back
• 30 amp power included
• Water at the slip included
• Free weekly pump-out available through Terry & Sons at www.pumpout.me
. Or, use the free pump-out station or wheeled/mobile pump-out.
• Marina access is restricted to slip owners & guests. The gate is locked and accessed using a code.
LBM has onsite laundry for $2 per load ($1.25 to wash. $0.75 to dry)
You supply your own detergent. None for sale. Laundry room is available only to marina guests.
Marina bathrooms and showers have been recently remodeled & are quite nice.
Showers are 50 cents for 3.5 mins. Bathrooms are accessed using marina code.
Free marina WiFi. My slip is near the outer border but I still get service, though it can slow down during peak use.
I have good Verizon, T-Mobile and AT&T cell reception and usually hotspot for internet service.
Management is onsite Mon, Tue, Thur & Friday.
This is a safe & friendly place to be.
Proximity to Seattle
Seattle’s downtown Bell Harbor Marina = 15 nm
North Seattle/Ballard's Shilshole marina = 12 nm
If you prefer to leave your boat in PBO, public transportation to Seattle is easy to use. I don't own a car so bike, use public transportation and/or taxis all the time.
The main bus stop is a 15 min walk from my slip. Take the bus to Bainbridge and explore downtown Winslow, or catch the ferry to Seattle. The Bainbridge ferry drops you in the heart of downtown Seattle - about a 12 min walk south of Pike Place Market and 15 mins north of the Chinatown/International District.
The Poulsbo waterfront is cute as heck with a smattering of restaurants & pubs, artsy stuff and famous Sluy's Bakery. The downtown Marina Market grocery store is much bigger that it appears from the outside and has a nice selection of fresh foods, canned goods, international products and liquor.
Kayaking, SUP and sailing in the bay are really sweet!! I often kayak down to The Loft or the Brass Kraken for lunch or Happy Hour.
Also – fuel prices at the Port of Poulsbo and nearby Brownsville are good, the fuel is reliably clean and the PBO dock is easy to access.
Safeway and my fave organic grocer, Central Market, are approx. 1.25 and 1.75 miles away. Both are full service grocers.
Rent by the week for a mere $225 all inclusive. (That’s just $32.15/day folks)
Reduced rate for longer term rental.
This is a very nice marina and your boat must look decent. It doesn't have to be fancy, it just can’t be a piece of drek.
And please, no loud, obnoxious, all-night-long party animals. Can you can hang with friends and enjoy yourself? Of course! Just be reasonable. That’s all I ask.
Willing to trade for slip access in Gulf Islands, Sunshine Coast, Campbell River or…???
Thanks for your interest and feel free to pass this opportunity along to friends.,
