City officials are looking for businesses who want to get a few oars in the water.

The city of Bainbridge Island is seeking proposals from qualified concessionaires to provide small boat rental services to the public from the new city dock at Eagle Harbor Waterfront Park.

Bainbridge hopes to find a concessionaire for a one-year lease agreement, with the option to renew for an additional two years.

The new city dock will include an uncovered, grated float attached to the main dock. The float will host a small boat rental concession and the city-owned police boats.

City officials note the small boat concessionaire will have full use of a 12-foot-by-48-foot section of the float to store hand-launch vessels. Associated equipment such as paddles and personal floatation devices may be stored in lockers in the park.

The city will provide fresh water and power to the float. City officials note that due to the float’s size constraints, administrative aspects of the rental operation — such as taking reservations and payments — will need to be handled remotely or off-site. Rent and utilities will be $2,500 per year.

Proposals must be submitted electronically by 4 p.m. Friday, March 2.
