Not many people know about Sausalito’s significant contribution to WWII. Just after the attack at Pearl Harbor, the U.S. government constructed the Marinship Shipyard on Sausalito’s waterfront. It was built in under 4 months and employed over 20,000. At it’s peak, Marinship launched 15 Liberty ships, 16 Fleet Oilers and 62 Tankers – a total of 93 ships. It was one of the most successful shipyards during WWII. In 2017, we celebrate the 75th Anniversary of this national treasure.
