Bay Ship & Yacht Overhauls Golden Gate Ferry District’s Marin

Tuesday, June 12, 2007
Bay Ship & Yacht announces they will soon complete the full refit of the Golden Gate Ferry, Marin. The vessel arrived in the shipyard on November 13, 2006, and will soon be back serving the commuters of the San Francisco Bay Area from its berth in Larkspur. Passengers who ride the Marin daily will be pleased to hear that the ferry had a complete remodel of the passenger seating, interior bulkhead linings, new carpet and vinyl flooring and overhead ceilings, ventilation, lighting, and exterior windows. Also included were new fresh water and sanitary systems, electrical systems, and a complete repainting of the vessel exterior.

An important part of Marin refit was to install new additions, safety features and to make the ferry completely ADA compliant including new fire boundary bulkheads on both the main deck and upper deck, two new unisex heads on the upper deck, a new ADA compliant elevator lift, new fire doors, all new lighting, power and emergency lighting, and a public address and entertainment system. Passengers will also enjoy four new sliding weather tight doors, three new embarkation doors and two completely new commissary and bar areas along with new interior and exterior seating and tables. Bay Ship & Yacht expects to release the ferry, Marin, back over to the Golden Gate Ferry District on June 7, 2007, and it should be back in full service shortly thereafter.
