It gives me great pleasure to announce that Gig Harbor Marina and Boatyard is now under new ownership. The Harbor Marina LLC, spearheaded by Ronald Roark, principal and managing member will begin the daily operation of the marina and boatyard effective immediately.
Our goal is to fulfill the needs of yachting and boating enthusiasts like yourself, as well as support Gig Harbor as a yachting destination. Additionally, we are committed to environmental protection and will work to integrate innovative green practices into the operation of the marina and boatyard.
The boatyard will continue to provide expertise in boat repairs to include mechanical and electrical services, painting, rigging, commissioning, and annual boat maintenance, with additional focus on improvements to provide our customers a first cabin experience. Upgrades to the marina restroom and shower facilities, higher quality WiFi, improvements and repairs to the existing docks, a new website for convenient payment and service requests, and a new security system are just a few of the items you will benefit from in the near future.
Longtime employee Mark Rybin will remain on staff as Travel Lift Operator and Dockmaster. Mark has been an integral member of the marina team for over 30 years and we are excited to have him as part of the new operations.
An updated Tenant package will be created to include your lease and rules and regulations, and will be distributed within the next 30 days.
The team at The Harbor Marina, LLC are very excited about the acquisition of Gig Harbor Marina and Boatyard and look forward to improving the daily operations of the marina and boatyard, as well as improvements to the overall facility.

About Gig Harbor Marina & Boatyard
Gig Harbor Marina & Boatyard began its life in 1905 as a fishing boat repair shop. As Skansie’s Ship Building Company it grew to be the largest of its kind on Puget Sound and even built the original Washington State Ferries. We’re very proud of that history and legacy of quality marine skills and services. You can see some wonderful photos from the early days here.
Today we’re a full service boatyard and marina, centrally located in beautiful downtown Gig Harbor, Washington. We have 106 slips from 26’ to 50’. We are also the only marina in Gig Harbor with a full service haul out and repair facility to assist you with your boat repair and maintenance needs.
Our haulout facilities include a 50 Metric Ton Marine Travelift which can haul most boats up to 60′ (19′ maximum beam). We also have a special spot in the yard for do-it-yourselfers to perform their own maintenance on their boats. See our full list of services here. And rates here.
Our marina has both open and covered moorage, and complimentary parking. We don’t require a long term rental agreement and all slips are rented on a month to month basis. Learn more about the marina here.
