Our luxury 38 ft. catamaran, BALAJAN, is berthed in the Marina Bay Yacht Harbor, located adjacent to the historic Rosie the Riveter Park.
BALAJAN has been designed for the comfort of her passengers. Her large cockpit with a table and a hard top bimini brings enough space for at least 6 guests. She is fully equipped with a galley, stove, fridge and freezer. With 3 cabins and 2 electric heads (toilets), our guests will appreciate her comfort.
She is also perfectly equipped for offshore sailing (BALAJAN has been crossing three times the Panama Canal!) and meets all the requirements of the U.S. Coast Guard.
Not only we will keep you safe, but we want your experience to be educational as well as enjoyable. Whether this is your first trip on the San Francisco Bay, you are a long-time resident,
or you are entertaining out of area guests, this is the perfect way to experience the San Francisco Bay. We look forward to sharing our Bay from a perspective rarely available to visitors to the

Ah San Francisco! The City by the Bay is a maritime dream and one of America’s most iconic cities. Sailing in San Francisco is probably the best way to experience her in all her glory…
Many people say that San Francisco is one of the most European feeling cities in America, and with historic streets and a vibe that is still very alternative, it’s easy to see why. And, with so much to see and do on the water, sailing in San Francisco is a uniquely thrilling experience.
