"Today, the NPS announced that all five respondents [see list below] will be invited to the next phase where they will submit a more detailed Request for Proposal (RFP). The RFP phase of competition will lead to selection of a single organization for exclusive contract negotiations. The RFP, which will be formally announced later this summer, will require the five offerors to prepare more detailed program proposals as well as pre-schematic rehabilitation plans.  The historic complex, anchored by an 8,500-square-foot historic WWII boat repair shop, operated as a beloved lounge and recreation center and associated marina. This has been under military management for more than 50 years, and most recently under Special Use Permit from the National Park Service, which has been extended to allow for this RFP process."

About the Fort Baker Boat Shop and Marina

  • The boat shop and marina complex at Fort Baker consists of an 8,200-square foot main building, three smaller outbuildings, a deck, and a guest dock (see photo at bottom of this page)
  • The National Park Service is seeking a commercial partner for the boat shop and marina complex through a Request for Qualifications (RFQ) that it released on April 8, 2019
