NEW DRY STORAGE AREA
A new dry-storage area is coming to Swantown later this year. This will provide a larger area for customers and tenants to store their trailers and vessels.
Licensed contractors looking to work at Swantown can take advantage of a new rate system beginning in January 2021.
This new rate structure will replace the 15% on billed labor rate that has previously been in effect and covers registration at both Swantown Boatworks and Swantown Marina.
All contractors who are currently registered with the Port will need to re-register under this new rate schedule. Please contact the Boatyard office or Harbor office to sign up & get more information.
The new rates for contractors working at Swantown have been broken down into two categories:
1. $200 Annual registration/ renewal
· Good for 1 calendar year (begins in January)
2. $50 per job per month registration
· Ideal for “one-time only” and warranty jobs · Does not count toward an annual registration
**Marina passes & keys are not included - call Harbor office for more information**
