Sausalito’s Floating Homes House Tour peeks inside modern maritime design on September 20th.

With their countercultural history, Sausalito’s floating homes are art on water, from Jean Yanko Varda and philosopher Alan Watts’ SS Vallejo, to Bill Harlan and his mini floating “Taj Mahal.” Today’s owners do not disappoint, and the annual Floating Homes House Tour offers a rare opportunity to peek inside modern maritime design.
