The City of Bainbridge Island is seeking proposals from qualified concessionaires to provide small boat rental services to the public from the City Dock at Eagle Harbor Waterfront Park, located at 301 NE Shannon Drive. The City’s goal is to enter into a three-year lease agreement beginning Jan. 1, 2021. The City of Bainbridge Island will select the operation that can serve the best interests of the public.
The City Dock includes an uncovered, grated float attached to the main dock. The float will host a small boat rental concession. The concessionaire will have full use of a 12’ x 48’ section of the float to store hand launch vessels. Associated equipment, such as paddles and personal flotation devices, may be stored in lockers in the park. The City will provide fresh water and power to the float. Due to the float’s size constraints, administrative aspects of the rental operation, such as taking reservations and payments, will need to be handled remotely or off-site. There is no office available on the float or protection from the elements.
The concessionaire shall pay the City $2,500 per year in rent and for utilities. This amount shall be paid quarterly in equal installments.
Parking is not available for the operation of this concession. Proposals should identify the availability of off-site legal parking. Staff parking, boat-trailer parking, and customer parking is not included as part of the concession agreement.
