Historic Residence on San Francisco Bay
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.
