We are Reopening: Our COVID-19 Precautions

The Electric Boat Company is committed to keeping our employees and customers safe as we reopen on Thursday, May 28.

Sanitization of Boats & Offices

Local distilleries (we chose Batch 206 and Fremont Mischief Distillery) have graciously provided Seattle with large amounts of hand sanitizer to combat store shortages. Thanks to these distilleries, we have plenty of industrial-strength disinfectant and hand sanitizer to resume operations and add extra sanitization precautions.

We will provide one travel-size bottle of hand sanitizer to every boat for their use and to take home with them. We will also be thoroughly spraying and wiping down the boats with a disinfecting solution in between reservations.

Open Air Boating

Public health officials in the U.S. are touting the benefits of open windows and fresh air. The Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) recommends opening windows to reduce the spread of coronaviruses and/or slow the transmission of COVID-19. Our boats will have ALL windows open during business hours to ensure fresh air is moving through the boats.

Check-In Office & Waiting Area Social Distancing

Our entire office has been reorganized following the six-foot standard to ensure customers and our employees have every opportunity to stay safe and we are limiting the number of vessels going out at the same time. Only the boat captain or the responsible party may enter the office for check-in. The rest of the party must wait outside on the barge where our benches are properly distanced from other parties.

In addition, we have made the necessary decision to permanently close down our yacht club rental space on the docks. This decision was made in order to create additional waiting areas to allow groups to maintain social distancing throughout 2020 and beyond.

Required Masks & Boat Restrictions

Masks are required in our office and on our docks! Please ensure your boat contains no more than five people outside of your household per Governor Inslee’s guidance.

Employee Precautions

Every single one of our employees will be wearing a mask and frequently changed gloves. They will be required to take their temperature at the office every morning and certify that they have had no symptoms in the last 48 hours and have not been in contact with any such person.

We hope you are as excited to get back on the water as we are. Reserve your boat online today!
