Boat Yard General Information

Located at rivermile 13 at the mouth of the Columbia River, the Port of Astoria's haul-out facility and ample boatyard are ideally situated for boaters from the Columbia River basin, and also serve West Coast boater traffic. In-water, upland storage, and long-term boat storage and trailer parking are available at rates significantly below those in urban areas.

The facility includes an 88-ton TraveLift®, offering excellent lift efficiency and providing greater versatility when placing the vessel ashore for storage or repairs. A wash down system makes it easier to remove algae and barnacles from a boat bottom, and dispose of this material properly.

Haul-Out Reservations are required, and may be made by calling the Marine Service Supervisor 8am to 4:30pm at 503-325-8279 or 503-791-7731.

Boat owners may contract for repair work with an on-site marine repair business, or lease boatyard space for do-it-yourself work. Amenities at the Haul-out/Boatyard include:

  • 88-ton TraveLift® Services Now Available
  • Long-Term Boat & Trailer Parking
  • In-Water & Upland Vessel Storage
  • Barge Ramp
  • Marine Repair Businesses
