The Port of Toledo Boat Yard at Sturgeon Bend in Toledo is now open for business!
The travel-lift will pull boats as large as 90 tons, and the dry-dock can pull vessels as large as 300 tons.
The Port’s boatyard is run as an ‘open’ boatyard with the port being responsible for scheduling, hauling out the vessels, hull cleaning, blocking, and environmental compliance. Vessel owners have the opportunity to perform their own maintenance, following boatyard policies, and can hire port-approved individual contractors as desired. Methods used in the operation of the yard will be as ‘green’ as possible, and DEQ’s applicable best management practices will be followed.
Over the past two years when the yard was shut down, many boat owners expressed their frustration in not having local facilities available to pull their large vessels. Owners and operators of these vessels now have the option to have repairs and improvements done locally, rather than taking their vessels - and their money - out of the area, which means jobs and economic value to Lincoln County.
The Port wishes to thank our partners throughout the process of this purchase, which have included Oregon Business Development Department, Lynn Schoessler, executive director for the Infrastructure Finance Authority; Dave Harlan, Ports Division Manager; Karen Homolac, Brownfields Program Specialist; and the Governor’s Economic Revitalization Team.
The boatyard is located at 1000 SW Altree Lane, Toledo Oregon
