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.

Slip Availability

There are no slips available at Municipal Yacht Harbor presently. The West Pier slips were allocated based on an extended open process. There is a waiting list (see information on the waiting list below) for the Restored Harbor.

Future Slips in a Restored Harbor

Once the harbor is restored, slips will become available.

Priority to a slip in the restored harbor will be accorded to existing West Pier Tenants who are in "Good Standing" as per the Slip Lease Rules for Existing Tenants in the Restored Harbor.


There are no facilities for transient vessels at Municipal Yacht Harbor. There will be no such facilities until the harbor is completely reconstructed.
