The Yellow Ferry is the oldest surviving ferryboat on the
West Coast. Originally launched in 1888 as the “City of Seattle”, the Ferry was adopted by the Tellis Family in 1956
and remodeled into an extraordinary floating home. Luxurious and elegant, the Yellow Ferry combines the
grandeur of a 19th century wooden ship with the contemporary
comforts and technologies one would expect in the world’s finest homes.
As extraordinary as the Ferry, is its location. Surrounded by
water on all sides, the ferry occupies a intimate relationship to the bay, the
tides, the waterfowl and marine mammals that is unlike any conventional home or
other houseboat. It is staggeringly beautiful and feels a world apart from the
bustle of modern life. The ferry’s fleet of kayaks, paddleboards, sailboats and
surfboards will allow you to be on the water all you wish.
At the same time the Ferry is perfectly located between
the natural splendor of the coastal parks and the cosmopolitan charms of San
Francisco, You are 15 minutes from the major San Francisco museums 10 minutes from the beach and Muir Woods and 45
minutes from the heart of the wine country.
We can guarantee that your stay on the Yellow Ferry will be
the vacation experience of a lifetime.
