After 50 years of decay, the Eureka Boat Basin has been redesigned. The project was funded by a federal grant from the Economic Development Agency and California Boating and Waterways. This project forms the southern anchor of the redevelopment area of the Eureka waterfront. Its exterior is themed as an 1800's boathouse and embodies the “Victorian Seaport” label for the Port. This building houses meeting rooms, interpretive and marine exhibits and offices. The total marina development cost was $8.4 million.
