Located on the south point of Seattle’s Lake Union, our floating Boathouse Gallery and Deck offer exceptional views year-round. The event space is set among our notable collection of vessels, with a marina to the East, the Space Needle and historic Naval Reserve Building to the West, and the full activity of the lake to the North.


Each rental includes both indoor and open outdoor spaces. The Gallery is located on the main floor of our Boathouse, making it fully accessible to all guests. Inside, the space features wood floors and exposed beams, highlighted with natural light from large-scale windows. Walls showcase maritime exhibits and photos below historic wooden boats suspended from the rafters.

Through French doors, the North Deck offers a panorama of water views from a wood-plank dock. Here, guests can reconnect with the physical world and take in the scene of Seattle’s maritime heritage.
