Municipal Yacht Harbor
Immediately prior to Hurricane Katrina, the Municipal Yacht Harbor included approximately 595 boat slips of varying sizes. They were located on three primary concrete piers and on wooden docks running along the bulkhead on the eastern and southern edges of the harbor. All had been constructed by the WPA between 1938 and 1940, then upgraded in the 1980s. Katrina severely damaged all of those piers and slips. The Harbor FEMA Claim has been resolved by the City of New Orleans, and the redevelopment of the Harbor started in June of 2018. Presently, half of the marina is fully operational with the other half nearing completion.
40′ Slips are available for immediate move-in. There is a waiting list for all other slip sizes.
The New Orleans Municipal Yacht Harbor Management Corporation (MYHMC), a public benefit corporation of the City of New Orleans, leases and manages all of the City’s property at West End – the property located between the New Basin Canal & the 17th Street Canal, outside of the levee/flood wall, except for Orleans Marina (and the surrounding boathouses and businesses), SYC and a sliver of Jefferson Parish along the 17th Street Canal.
For over a century the City has been responsible for West End. It has seen its ups and downs, but has always been an important part of life in the City.
