Matthew Turner is a 132’ wooden brigantine, built in Sausalito, CA, launched in 2017 and sailing the Bay since 2020. She is an unique educational platform, serving students of all ages in Seamanship, Marie Science, Nautical History and Team Building instruction. Contact us to arrange an educational sail for a group.
Matthew Turner is docked at the US Army Corps of Engineers Bay Model Visitor Center at 2100 Bridgeway in Sausalito, CA. Access to the parking lot and pier is via Marinship Way.
Free parking is available in the US Army Corps of Engineer Bay Model Visitor Center lot. There will be an escort to walk you down the pier past the gate.
Matthew Turner has a public restroom on board. Restroom is available for use one at a time. We do recommend using shore facilities at the Bay Model as a priority prior to sailing.
