Morro Bay has considered a full-scale boatyard, where boats could be stored and hauled out to the ocean, for years. The study will determine market demand and market opportunities before moving forward with a project.
The contract with the consultant, approved with a 5-0 council vote, is expected to cost $29,000, and the Morro Bay Commercial Fishermen’s Organization has agreed to fund half of the cost.
The scope of work will also include a project management timeline and relevant industry reports, publications and studies of existing boatyards, including one in Avila Beach, and their approaches to the industry.
